I couldn't agree more with what others are saying. If you want to be a SP then do it. Listen to your
wants and needs and not those of others.
I had a life changing event right in the middle of my training and moved away from Orlando. When I got settled in North Florida the closest sport pilot CFI was about a 50 minute drive from my house. This slowed my training, no doubt, but I sucked it up and finished. Why, because it's what I wanted to do for so long. And because I already bought the plane so I figured I'd better learn to fly it.
I am perfectly healthy and could pass a medical with zero issues but I just love everything about LSA. For my purposes I have no need for a PPL as my SPL allows me to do everything I want to do with my flying. Also, I like flying my newer plane with it's glass panel and all it's bells and whistles instead of a pile of scrap aluminum that's older than I am. Just sayin'
