New Year, New Adventure

As of yesterday, DH owns a one-third share of a Bonanza. He's looking forward to flying more (although he's been soaring a lot lately, and is almost ready for his checkride), and the rest of us are looking forward to the travel opportunities that will be open to us. He has some work to do to get up to speed in the Bonanza first.

DH has been preparing to buy into the partnership for a while now. He had a mechanic look things over, checked the title and logs, had some lawyers help with the partnership agreement, all that good stuff.

Over Thanksgiving weekend we borrowed the keys to the hangar, and went and made airplane noises. Our new partners are two very interesting retired couples. We're looking forward to getting to know them better.

I just read "the Summons", where the main character buys a Bonanza with three other partners. If the plane is as cool in real life as the novel, it must be pretty awesome. Tabrik! (translation: congrats)

I haven't read the book, so I can't comment on how the plane is portrayed there. It is very cool!
