Flybynight, my experience is that the surest way to ruin a good bush pilot is to give him an Instrument Rating. I have seen it many times. I would suggest to any aspiring pilot to take the money that they would spend on a Multi/IFR and rent a Float Plane and fly the shit out of it and get as many hours on floats as you can.

My experience also tells me a Cessna 185 is the hardest and most dangerous bush plane you will ever fly. I have always said that they should start a new pilot on a Beaver and when he gets enough experience move him to the 185.

CLguy :

It has always been thus in aviation, if nothing else we would have less insurance claims if float pilots started on the Beaver.


The hardest thing about flying is knowing when to say no

After over a half a century of flying no one ever died because of my decision not to fly.
