    Not a pilot, but I got a small amount of backseat time in Canadian Fighters a few years back. There's no feeling that even comes close to raging around the skies in a fighter. I would give anything to go again - and there is a tiny possibility I could go again next year.

    So how do you like the Goshawk? Looks like a fun trainer. What are you hoping to end up in - Super Hornet?

    I fly a 912 Super Drifter on Full Lotus floats. Not much for burning holes through the sky, but sure is fun and relaxing. 80hp two seats open cockpit can't beat it here in the Tampa Bay area of Florida.

    The mighty goshawk is a great plane. Looking to go EA-18 and FA-18 as second choice.
