    Mr. Greenwood:

    Good for you. Glad it wasn't something that you could buy a small house for.

    This is all well and good, but if they wanted to do something that would really have a positive impact on encouraging the growth of GA and Sport Aviation, they would up the MTOW on LSAs to something...

    Based on that particular response from the CFI having been seen on multiple fora, and based on the forum posted responses to it that I've seen, I'd RUN away from that instructor as fast as I could.

    And you're not going to. It's called "privacy"...

    My experience with flying clubs is and will remain, enough to deter me from them for eternity.

    Everyone else may be different, but that's...

    You may disagree about YOUR club, but I bet you...

    You may disagree about YOUR club, but I bet you don't ask for bank statements up front, and deter people from finding out information about you if they don't drive up in a Mercedes.

    That has been...

    I know you were speaking tongue-in-cheek, but we've been married 24 years, and the reason we've stayed married is that neither one of us makes arbitrary decisions without the others' approval and...

    Yay! Another guy interested in buying lunch without having to pay for a seven-course meal!

    If it were me (and I had that many options!) I would have a tough time choosing between door #2 and door...
  11. Interesting take, Bill... The only problem with...

    Interesting take, Bill... The only problem with it is if I don't find a CFI capable of teaching in an LSA, then all I'll ever get to do is sit on my arse watching others. That smacks too much of the...
  12. They could have wanted to check my credit all day...

    They could have wanted to check my credit all day long, and I wouldn't have had the first bit of trouble with it. I've never been late on any payment, and I only have one credit card, and the last...

    Two of the three local airports were uncontrolled small local airports. The third one was the one with the locked gate. There are four privately-owned airfields within 40 miles, two of which are...

    If you aren't infuriated by this kind of economic elitism, then you're just like them.

    The fact that the guy asked for my bank statement tells me one thing: They only want a club for people like...

    I completely agree with you that they were "way off the mark" and anyone who has that kind of attitude wouldn't get a cent from me for any service.

    The one guy that told me "I don't waste my time...

    I'm in a location where there is no sport pilot CFI within 150 miles. Where specifically, is irrelevant, since there are neither local instructors, nor any interest in what everyone around here calls...

  19. What's a guy to do? Can't find Sport Pilot training anywhere close

    I'm seeing red, mostly because of the attitude that everyone seems to have that the Sport Pilot Certificate is worth less than the paper on which it is printed.

    I have already searched the EAA...

    Mr. Giger, I salute you.

    This is one of the best posts I have ever seen. I am sick to death of the attitude that LSA is worthless, and having had three different CFIs at three different airports...
