My dream is to work as flying doctor with a missions organization such as MAF.
Right now I’m taking a few years off before I go into medical school… I want to travel around the world with my mom and younger sister (12 years old). I’ve been thinking of purchasing (or building) a plane but this would be my first plane and I’m looking for recommendations.
For our first year we will be traveling around the United States to places such as Niagra Falls, Rocky Mountains, Grand Canyon, Yosemite, etc.
All we need is something to get all three of us (and some luggage, maybe a tent) from point A to point B. Our home is in northern Illinois so an airplane that could get us from Illinois to the East Coast non-stop would be great (a range of about 550-600 miles).
Year two would involve flying internationally and if anyone could provide tips on doing that, I would sure appreciate it. Insurance tips would be great too.
Our combined weight would be around 400lbs excluding luggage. We’re all under 6′ tall. Price is a consideration, and we’ll probably end up buying a used plane. Thanks!
