I feel the need to jump in here for a few reasons. 1) I would love to compeate in primary; however: a) I'm not all that sure my 48' Navion would be welcome b) I'm not all that sure I would be welcome because. 1) I have had no training in aerobatics, yet would love to learn. 2) I would love to purchase a Pitts; however: a) two planes, geez I'm having enough fun trying to keep one flying. b) two planes, anyone got a few thouand dollars they don't need? c) I'm not getting rid of my Navion. Now on the statement: >May we see a showing of hands of all of you that were as > safe and skilled the first time you showed up at a contest as you are now? Really I remember very well learning how to land. For the longest time I was compatant in landing; yet it took a lot of focus. THEN something happened, the focus is still required; however it is now more of instinct where I feel I'm a lot safer. Anyway, just the humble openion of someone who is still trying to find a way to fly aerobatics.
