I'm based in Frederick, Maryland (FDK) and am comfortable flying single-pilot IFR when the weather's within my airplane's capabilities. I own a 180-hp Piper Arrow (PA28-R); with only one passenger door, crate dimensions may pose a problem. I have one harness that I can use to secure a fairly large dog (80 pounds or so) to a rear seat belt.
My availability during the week is unpredictable but requires advance notice. Weekends are a bit tight, but should improve later in 2009.
