YOU MIGHT BE A REDNECK FLYER IF....

Your airplane cost more than your first house
You get big tires because the look cool
You spent 20 times more on avionics than your wife's wedding ring
You burn $100.00 worth of gas to eat a $10.00 lunch then fly 20 minutes the wrong way to save 50 cents a gallon on gas
You camp in a tent in the rain and red mud instead of Caveman Lodge or Gateway Canyon Resort cuz you like too
You drink margs and play pool at Caveman Ranch while the storm does it's thing and wonder why more BCPs arn't here
You land in the mud and then feel a urge to wash it off ASAP
You have the Johnson Creek web cam as your desk top
You turn on BCP as soon as you get up in the morning
You get a kick out of having post tossed to HOT AIR
You rather fly to Idaho, Utah, Alaska or any dirt strip than a swanky resort
Your idea of a great resort is one with a dirt strip Caveman Ranch and Gateway Canyon
You listen to country and classic rock on your head set instead of airplane radio
You fly everywhere with loaded guns and don't give a crap about there gun laws
You set next to the local police at lunch and wonder if they care you have a loaded gun on ya
You have a few margs before the spot landing contest because you fly better that way =D>

You stop and turn around to look at your plane everytime you walk away from it
You talk to your plane before closing the hangar door for the night
You can identify every plane you see in the sky even if it's a 182 at 12,000ft

Re: YOU MIGHT BE A REDNECK FLYER IF....

I think you guys are confusing "redneck" with "aviator." There might be some overlap, but you have to realize where everything else ends and the redneck begins.

You might be a redneck flyer if you burn your trash to pre-heat your engine.
You might be a redneck flyer if your tanks vent fuel vapor into your cabin, and you enjoy it.
You might be a redneck flyer if you sincerely hope that AK Bushwheel is going to invent a short-tongue trailer for taildraggers.
You might be a redneck flyer if you think .45 ACP is an acceptable substitute for "hear ye!" at a fly-in.

You might be a redneck pilot if you've ever reported "turning final for runway X".

If you've ever used 100LL for cologne
If you've ever made a low pass to clear deer or turkeys off the strip
If you have a pet named after your aircraft's manufacturer
If you have a O-360 piston on your desk for an ashtray

Re: YOU MIGHT BE A REDNECK FLYER IF....

You might be a redneck pilot if you've thought of mounting a Browning 1919 to the wing so you can strafe coyotes from the air.

Just a personal idea I would like to try :wink:

If landing at your favorite spot means a low pass with the mains to see if its firm enough to land on.


You never remove your fishing gear from the plane. :D

You have little in commin with your co workers, and you pitty them because they will never know your bliss or understand it.
The only picture you have of your wife in your office is next to your airplane.
Your favorite picture of her is camping with the plane.
You have more pictures of your airplane in your office than family.
You watch the weather ch more than the news.
Try to figure a way to put in a runway in at home.
Spend more time planing and day dreaming about your next camping trip to Idaho than working on a work day.
Your airplane engine is cleaner than any thing else you own.
Your best friend tells you that your airplane and flying has taken over your life and your proud of it.
One of your reasons for loosing weight is to increase payload.

Oh I'd like to strafe a lot of various animals of the predator sort. Another reason why I want a taildragger. Wow, just as I am writing this I think of new ideas.

The cost of a Browning 1919? $2000. The cost of 200rds of 308? $79.99. The look on that coyotes face when you open fire? Priceless

Re: YOU MIGHT BE A REDNECK FLYER IF....

I got asked once if I had named my plane ("Honey") after my wife, I just said no, and let them figure it out!

Though my house is now worth more then the plane, the out of pocket expense for both was very close to the same, and the plane is many many times the worth/cost of any vehicle I own, that's the way it is supposed to be, right?
