I've mentioned a couple above but here is one: it might stop you flying altogether.

I have a limited flying budget, I don't want to spend that following a magenta line or flying in cloud. The...

OK, I'm going to put the case against:

Are you planning to use it regularly? If not (and I haven't got one so I don't know) is it safe to fly IFR when you are not current? As a 'get out of jail...

Have you seen the sort of cars that people learn to drive in? The crappiest, cheapest box on wheels the driving school will trust them with.

I'll criticize his airmanship. The pilot had 90 hours accrued between January 2005 and and May 2013, and as I read it, hadn't revalidated/renewed his licence which had lost its validity on 14th...

I love flying. My social life is elsewhere. When I go flying it is to be in the air, not to be chatting and socialising. If I wanted that I would have taken up golf or something. My ideal day is...

... but in fact the situation is the exact opposite. As tired, complacent old farts and their dodgy aircraft drop out of the pool of GA we see higher standards of safety and airmanship. The number...

So you come to ask for advice and when you get it and it disagrees with your opinion you rubbish it. I notice that you've had the same advice here and on Flyer, and still you think it is because the...

But wait a minute, that link contains the following:

I'm not sure how that supports your case? As I suggested earlier; landing accidents are unlikely to widow your wife and orphan your children

They really, really don't. What they do is much more demanding, complicated and difficult, but it is also completely different. Would you take a truck driver's advice on which small car to buy if...
