I am currently a student.. (Again)
Congratulations! And may you always remain so.
About 10 years ago I went to a part 141 school (Sierra Academy of Aeronautics)
Sierra was a great school. I wonder if they're still in business?
decided to go the LSA route.
That was a good choice. Although many of the skills you acquired in PP training will transfer to SP, and the hours of dual instruction count, you will note two things: (1) the light wing loading of LSAs means they handle completely differently, and (2) with a ten-year lapse, you'll have accumulated so much rust that you'll essentially be starting all over again. That said, because of your prior experience, you'll likely finish the SP rating in much closer to 20 additional hours than to the national average of 40.
Welcome to the forum. Fly safely, and have fun!
Thanks for the welcome Dr Shuch!
Sierra was in then out then in.. They are now back and fly out of Atwater now on the old base.
Yeah, I flew last weekend to get a refresher and god I felt pretty rusty, some things come back and others don't..
I look forward to the challenge of learning it all again.. I do have some concerns I have run into, but I will toss that into the Training Section.
