I've been into commercial aircraft ever since I flew home to see family back in 2011 Summer.
Some McDonnell(i dunno' if that's correct spelling) Douglas aircraft, Boeing. I like the Boeing 727 as well.
As far as cars, it's my bigger interest. I love premium and luxury cars, grand tourers or just sedans. It doesn't really matter which country, though I'm not a fan of Korean luxury cars that much.
American sports cars interest me as well, and I also favor a lot of different German autos.

Cars of all kinds.
Sports, street and dual-sport bikes
Small, single/twin engined light combat/utility helicopters (Westland Lynx, Gazelle)
Cold war supersonic interdictors and ground attack aircraft (General Dynamics F-111, SEPECAT Jaguar)
Experimental aircraft, particularly post-cold-war Russian multirole fighters (PAK-FA, MiG 1.44)

I've always wondered if that one you had in your sig was actually yours?

No, unfortunately not. I haven't reached the stage of my life where I can afford to own my own aircraft outright yet. I have been toying with the idea of joining Netjets but I don't fly private enough to justify the cost. I would really like to get some flying lessons and get a license. So far I've done simulator training (Actually more expensive than a lesson in a real plane).

Boats not to be confused with ships. Preferably cruisers, catamarans, trimarans, motor yachts and luxury yachts. Since I was little my parents and I we chartered a cruiser every summer and went from marina to marina. So my love for boating and boats in general was born.

Private Jets, Vintage and sports cars are also to my liking.

What is there to explain?


"Any corner at any speed"?

I think he was making a joke at the expense of your exaggeration, not a big deal.

You should totally look into real lessons and getting a license. It isn't that hard. Even I've thought about it. nervous.gif
A close friend of mine casually got his when he was a teen and later went on to become a commercial pilot. Fond memories of flying around the area in a little Cessna just for fun on nice weekend days. Crazy to think the pilot was maybe 17yrs old. Another 15yr old dude I went to school with was getting his license(lost touch with him during).

2 people I work with have theirs and it sounds like a blast. Neither of them own planes but apparently you can rent them and it is cheaper than taking something like the train or commercial flights.

Anyway...to answer the question. I'm not a big vehicle guy, but I have a weird like(borderline obsession) for helicopters , and I enjoy motorcycles.

I have always liked the smaller stuff. Lower powered, smaller cars that outperform similar others (such as Lotus or Mazdas). Small aircraft like Cessnas and Pipers and ultralights. I also like small guns, like pocket pistols, but that is a different discussion.

Basically, taking the technology and making it into a smaller package that can do the same task. It intrigues me, and it seems wierd that I just said "intrigues."

Yeah I'd love that. Problem is I don't have the time. I split my time 40/40/20 (Asia/Europe/US). Hard to really get into any sort of routine in regards to extracurricular activities such as flying lessons. The most I've done is simulator training so in theory I should be able to fly a 737. Getting a pilots license is definitely something I will do in my lifetime though.
