Elimination of third class medical

Postby Mark Gregor » Mon Jan 17, 2011 12:07 am

I dont understand why this is threatening to the light sport industry. I think it may help them. At worst it would be nuetral.
People who can afford a new light sport are not going to buy a ratty old 152 to fly instead. People who want a nice plane have two choices. A new LSA or a new skyhawk for $300000. Makes that $150000 LSA look pretty good.

The pilots who cant get a third class and cant afford a new LSA are just not flying. They have no other choice unless they fly one of the cheap LSAs with questionable safety and build quality. If we remove the third class these people would fly and that would be a good thing. If your airport is like mine it has been pretty quiet for the last few years. I dont like the talk of closing our airport.

Get more pilots flying and we will sell more Planes. Both LSAs and certified. Good for pilots. Good for aviation overall.

Good, logical argument. I agree.
