A buddy of mine flew me in this little 4 seater plane once, one of the most exciting experiences of my life.

Mike -

Good luck in finding a taker. Sounds like a wonderful trade if you ask me...

Dang...I wish you were closer! How about you jump from city to city to compare Miatas? I'm sure we could meet up in Leesburg, VA.

This weekend doesn't work for me.

j/k.

Maybe, but how does it compare to a Huey doing combat lifts and cutting s-curves at 100 feet AGL at 75-80 knots with the doors open? Or backseat of an F-16 pulling multi-G maneuvers? (I will concede it beats being in the back of a HIP-8 when you're airborne and notice about an inch of av-gas awash on the deck...)

dude dont you have any local autocrossing meets? go to one and see if people will give you rides. Around here a lot of people will not mind to have you ride passenger as most of them put down their numbers in the beginning or at the end while in the middle they are about having fun.
