About 3,000 pilot in command, and unknow how many right seat hours, Dad had me flying when I was 12 so he could take naps! Not current, we haven't needed a plane since 1990.

Just had to buz-in for the K1200R riders. I am a commercial pilot with just a little over 10,000 hrs. About 6500 of that is in DC-8's and MD-80's.

Most turbines run Exxon 2380. It's a full synthetic and it's purple-ish in color. The used oil, funny enough, looks just like brand new clean motor oil.
