Me thinks we'll be doing it in a 172. The 152 (and older 150) is too tight for a man of my girth! I have a good mentor too. A friend who is a former instructor and a current commercial jet pilot. He steered me to a local intructor who is like me....procedure oriented and no nonsense.
But to keep things on topic......perhaps I'll fly my family to MCO someday for a cruise connection!
