the particular road I do the "passing on" is 20 miles deep in 1 way accessible mount roads,at 1am'ish with absoulutly no local traffic.We keep people from disrupting the runs by holding them while a run is in progress. And by passing I mean, the other guy yields to the right and lets me by. yea yea I know crossing lanes is dangerous, and Ive heard all the jazz before..but this particular road setup is not commen. anyways anyone who aggresivly passes people on populated roads is just frigging crazy......

ugh....I spend all day around planes as is . I would love to fly a pitts though. but the chugging through flying 172's and the $$$ to rent any aerobatic aircraft always deters me. I assume you got your private? or are ya up and past IFR?

So does that mean you're a badass pilot that can do anything including full size jet passenger planes?

No, that would require an ATP and a type rating in the aircraft if it's over 12,500 gross or a jet engine.

The thing is most pilots that end up getting to the "bad *** jet" level tend to not enjoy there jobs...if you get in with the right owner in a private jet your golden. but thats all about networking. netjets or flexjet pays kinda crappy but they gobble up all the newbies....enh like being a high class limo driver......flying for fun is much better
