Congratulations on passing your check ride
For people giving up on flying because of cost, I'd like to point out that there are much cheaper alternatives than Debonair.
I'm a part owner (1/3rd now) of Piper Pacer PA-20 (previously C170 and C140).
For our fixed costs (hangar, insurance, annual, engine reserve, oil) we collect $1600 (used to be cheaper before) per year from each partner (technically a shareholder) and we pay for gas when we fly (the airplane is allowed to use auto fuel, but it's getting harder to find non-ethanol gasoline).
We are actually looking for additional partners, because the plane is not flying enough.
My annual expenses from Recreation:Flying category since 2003,
for between 20 and 40 hours of flying annually:
2012: $700 (YTD)
