Not questioning your decision, but I'm just making sure you're not limiting yourself when it comes to options. I just did a checkout ride in the Grumman Tigers over at Legacy at PNE (they used to be Hortman Aviation), so that's something relatively close by...but no LSAs or sport pilot training that I'm aware of.
Timely question overall, though...I have a friend who is physically disabled (has her driver's license, needs hand controls) who wants to learn to fly, but there's no Sky Arrow around for training. Is it possible to fit hand controls into Art's plane for her to learn?
Thanks for the welcome AJ! The reason why I am going for the sport pilot license is primarily because of medical issues. I'd rather not say more than that. Also I think the sport pilot license is cheaper and easier to get than a PPL. Thanks to JoeM I found out more places in the area that offer sport pilot training other than AB Flight and Liberty Sport Aviation but they are still quite a drive for me.
Right now, I am still getting used to my airport operations job at PHL and still need some more time before I could dive back into flight training. Interesting things always go on at PHL!
