Do yourself a favor. Bite the bullet, buy a commercial ticket to Portland, and see Mike Seager. Ask him for an honest evaluation. Ask him what it will take to get current. He'll be honest with you.
I know Jetguy, I don't think he needs the cash.

Them silly things don't count for much, and that was about 6 years ago. You never realize how much your skills were lost until you try it again. I had friends and have heard of people crashing and sometimes perishing in their newly built plane, now I can understand why, you don't "feel" like you forgot how to fly!.

Don, how will the instructor get the transition training and the make and model time to get on the insurance?

Excellent question. The way I am reading my insurance policy, if I let someone else fly it, he needs 25 hours in type and 500 total UNLESS HE IS AN INSTRUCTOR, those times don't apply. Could I be wrong?

If you are insured with Shanna or Jenny at Gallagher (Nationair) 877-577-8267. They could probably work with you regarding the instructors coverage on your plane. It's been done before.

I'm still confused....

So you haven't actively flown as PIC for 24 years or 6 years?

Either way there is always a bunch of rust to knock off.

If Jetguy felt you needed more before he signed off on your BFR, then I think you made the right decision to put your airplane on a trailer.......
