Moving from Steam Gauge Cockpit to Glass Cockpit

Sport aviation is growing rapidly. But the new sport pilot / light-sport aircraft rules are still a mystery to many flight schools and instructors. To locate a flight school offering sport pilot training and/or light-sport aircraft rentals, click on the "Flight School And Rental Finder" tab above. This is a great place to share ideas on learning to fly, flight schools, costs and anything else related to training.

100% correct with the Dynon legacy glass. I wear eye glasses 24/7. The polarized clip on’s I have make many LCD screens unreadable.

Must be uncomfortable sleeping.
