I have been working with a student with a strong interest in the lighter side of flying. Cessna and Cub type experimentals down to hang gliders and paragliders. She needs contacts in the Austin TX area. Post any comments here. EAA chapters, Ultralight, clubs, etc.

Current experience is in a Cessna 182 in the Pacific Northwest.

Theres no longer a flight school at Bergstrom the big airport. There is at Aus Ex on the ne side of town, area known as Plufegerville. or about 20 miles north at Georgetown or bought that far south at San Marcos which is very pretty on the river.
