The following data was compiled by searching available literature (primarily newsletters), by personal conversations and through survey cards mailed to over 150 aircraft registered on the F.A.A. rolls. A significant number of survey cards were not returned. This survey is not scientifically precise and should be viewed as general information of a broad perspective. Particularly interesting is the comparison of total time to months since first flight.

If you know of a flying aircraft that should be included please invite the owner to contact us or send us his name and address yourself.
