Seeking LSA rental or partnership - Knoxville, TN

Postby TnLonghorn » Wed Jun 14, 2017 12:58 pm

Hi, I am a private pilot who can no longer obtain a medical. I am interested in flying an LSA. To my knowledge there are none at any of the flying clubs in the immediate area of Knoxville, TN. If anyone knows of a club (or individual) that has an LSA or would be interested in partnering on one in this area, please contact me. Thanks.

Good luck with your search. Just remember that to fly under sport pilot privileges in a airplane the last medical you applied for had, to be issued and expire under favorable circumstances. Also if you have held a medical that expired under favorable circumstance in July 2006 or after, and you have not had one of the three medical conditions that require a special issuance. You can still fly as a private pilot under BasicMed.

Don't know of any flying clubs in your area with Light Sports, but as 3Dreaming said, depending on your situation BasicMed might be an option.

I live not far away in N GA, and I'm back and forth to our airstrip in Lenoir City all the time.

Let me know at FastEddieB@mac.com if you want to get together and discuss options.
