Purchasing choices

Talk about airplanes! At last count, there are 39 (and growing) FAA certificated S-LSA (special light sport aircraft). These are factory-built ready to fly airplanes. If you can't afford a factory-built LSA, consider buying an E-LSA kit (experimental LSA - up to 99% complete).

He is, in fact, an active member of SportPilotTalk! Perhaps he'll chime in here and introduce himself. Yes, his are great videos.

Wonderful plane :-)

No real issues with heat/bubble canopy - it does get a bit hot when taxing , as you guys mentioned, but once you are up , it is plenty cool.

Keep in mind that I am a student pilot with only 35 hours so I think it is a good deal.
It started out with almost $4000 per year heheh


This year, after getting my license and going up to 105 hours, my insurance, same terms and everything, is down to $1700...
