The Year of the Yellowbird - 2004

In 2004, Yellowbird and I logged 90.9 hours of flight time. In that time, she burned about 840 gallons of 100 octane low-lead aviation gasoline (for an average hourly burn rate of 9.2 gallons per hour) and drank in about 30 quarts of oil (approximately 14 quarts of which were drained during oil changes).

We logged 259 landings, and if the laws of physics and good piloting were honored, then we had an equal number of takeoffs. We visited 21 different airports in 4 different states, and carried about 20 friends, many of whom had never flown in a small plane.
