    I picked things up better if i flew every other day. But, I am old and things just take a bit longer to sink in. Very hard to get the weather to fly 14 straight days up here.

    Just in case you didn't realize, Jake, the op of this thread just lost his wife. Of course I can't speak for him, but with 6 kids now to take care of on his own, I doubt very much the he's thinking of learning to fly anytime soon......unfortunately.

    I'm not too sure about this approach. I logged 24 hours of training in 2 weeks flying twice per day. Then when i got on a less rigorous schedule i had to relearn most of that first 24 hours. It didn't work for me. It was fun but i didn't absorb near what i hoped i would.

    Well my life is back rolling. And I got planes on the brain again.
    There anyone local here who would be willing to let me run the levers and buttons up front and pay fuel for a little bit of take off and landings to see if flying sticks to me or if I hate it?

    My suggestion would be to look into a supercub or whatever you plan to use for your business. Time and experience in one plane is valuable at any experience level, especially when you are low time and wanting to do non standard type flying. You could possibly hire a pilot/mentor/assistent guide for a year or two until you are commercial rated and more experienced.
