I stopped flying back in 1998 and I only had 1 more solo cross country flight left and my checkride. I went flying with a friend yesterday, we took a Cessna 152 up in the Utah mountains. He let me fly about 1/2 the time (he's a CFI) and it really brought back how fun flying is. I'm thinking about getting back into it and get my Private Pilot. I have 36 hours IIRC. Would I have to repeat much because of the lapse in time? I told him yesterday that I would feel confident with taking off and landing, but I'm rusty on rules, regulations, navigation, radio calls, etc. I started off flying Katana DA20's and I ended up flying Piper PA/28's, which I absolutely love to fly. The Cessna 152 we flew yesterday was in poor shape. Interior panels cracked and ripped, very wells used, but of course mechanically sound enough to fly. That is a small plane. I'm not used to the high-wing aircraft and I felt like I had huge blind spots because I'm used to low wing aircraft. What are the going rates for rentals? I was paying $45/hr for the Katana and $65/hr for the Piper. I'm sure those prices are much higher today. Thanks for any help. I hope to someday be comfortable enough financially to own an aircraft.
