training in Ohio

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.

training in Ohio

Postby MikeM » Thu Oct 04, 2018 8:09 pm

Hi everyone, I am a rusty sport pilot in need of some training and a BFR. I do not have an airplane so I need an instructor or flight training school that have a Light Sport aircraft available. Anybody know of such a thing in north central Ohio?

Not sure about Northern Ohio, but I know of a couple in Cincinnati Area. My local flight school Hogan Flying Service (HAO) (my son is flying there) has a Cub they train in. Also (I66) Clinton County Airport has an LSA they train in.

I am sure there are others.

Sporty's used to have an LSA, don't know if they still do. They were in Cincinnati. Where exaxtly? I'm from the Cleveland area originally, there used to be a flight school out of Burke Lakefront, but that was years ago....

Just did some quick digging, Zone Aviation out of Lorain has a CTLS, they also operate out of Burke. If it's the same folks from 20 years ago (who knows) they were good folks.. Though I've never taken a lesson from him I'll second Dr. SETI as an extremely knowlegable and competent individual.

I trained at Sports (Clermont County Airport KI69) Sadly they sold it about 3 months after I finished. I think the had one or two other SP in the in the pipeline and when they were done sold the SkyCatcher, someone in KY purchased it according to the FAA Registry.

Thanks for the kind unsolicited endorsement, Ed. I'm hoping that some day we will get a chance to fly together. :D
