Welcome aboard, Marty. Please do tell us a bit about that aircraft.

Welcome back to aviation and to the forum! I took an over-30 year hiatus myself, so have been in your shoes. You will be thrilled that you re-joined the club!

Thanks for the welcome guys, RA-Aus is very much the same as your USA Sport Pilot, No aviation medical needed, Less flying training hours, No entry into Controlled Air Space, No Aircraft over 600kgs takeoff weight. Currently converting to RA-Aus in a Tecnam P96 Golf. Cheers
