    Yo, Skydiver!
    "Pitts Special Biplane (dumped out of front seat)"
    Intentionally, I hope!

    I have flown the Pitts S2B for a few years and I can put the word 'dumped' in with some of my landings with that machine!;f

    Skyvan, Twin Otter, Porter, Cassa, and C-182. Almost did a King Air, but didn't like the looks of it.

    A couple years ago I wanted to take some friends up so I rented a C152.
    I hadn't flown a fixed wing in 26 years so I got a CFI to ride around with me for a few minutes while I shot some TO's and LDG's.

    RedDawn was waiting for me, so when I dropped the CFI off, I took him for a ride.
    He's a Viet Nam Trooper. HALO, the WHOLE works.

    As we landed and were rolling out he says, "Well, that was a new experience".

    I said, "What are you talking about, you've been up thousands of times".

    He laughed and said, "Ya, but I never landed in one".;f

    Definitely the best compromise of cost to fun and speed ratio!

    Blue Ones!
