Hello. I am planning on completing my instrument rating during the summer (June/July) and I want to split a lot of CE152 time after that.

Oakland Flyers offers CE152 for $59 dry, or about $80 when including fuel.
Aircraft Oakland Flyers LLC Flight Training In the San Francisco Bay Area, Ground School and Flight Lessons at the Oakland International Airport, CA (

Cal Argie Flyers offers CE152 time for $84 wet.
Cal Aggie Flying Farmers (

I can split up to 50 hours, but please be willing to split at least 15 hours.

Good luck fueling a 172 for $21/hour!

It's actually a 152 sorry.

152s when operating at 75% power and correctly leaned can get around 4.5 GPH in cruise. Lot's of places in CA have 100LL for around $4 per gallon from my understanding.

I'm getting around 6gph from 172s while X-C... In KMCC $3.81 self = $23ph So no need much luck to fly 152 @$21

I may be interested in splitting some time. In the next month or so in the north bay area out of Petaluma. They have decent wet rates, 80 per hour wet for a 152, so 40 bux each.

Ill keep in contact, if anyone is interested.
