    I have been thinking about this since I saw this Youtube video comparing LSA accident rates many month back.

    I would wait, but there is some risk.

    The only thing that I could predict to cause the price of ADS-B to go up would be Garmin successfully getting an injunction against uAvionics. The odds of...

    Thanks for all of the help, after some time to think about it, my complex dreams will have to wait a few years. Its back to looking for a good Grumman AA1/A/B/C.
  6. Is this a terrible mistake? Buying a dream plane as a first plane.

    I may have a chance to buy a dream plane as my first plane, but I am worried that I'm not viewing this objectively.

    I have always loved Mooneys, but specifically, I am fond of the early wood wing...

    I'm working toward my PPL. From a "checkbox" perspective I still need an hour of simulated instrument, 6 hours solo (1 XC) and 3 hours of night. Then it is just prep for my checkride.

    This one has a 618, and it is at 310 hours. I have read about them running on condition much longer, but I want to plan for a 0 time overhaul unless I see a very convincing argument that it is in...

    Long term, I want to build something fast and efficient. Short term, I want to build hours.

    It's a fiberglass and fabric ELSA Ultralight trainer, this one is a Skyboy, but I have noticed some...

    I'm learning to fly at 31 while working a full-time job, my CFI suggested I was ready to solo on a windy day at 14 hours, but then the weather went bad, and my CFI took an airline job resulting in me...
  13. 2 Seat, Kit built 150 mph @ 5 gph?

    I have been reading about Europe's Ultralights and I am impressed with how fast and efficient they are.

    There are multiple options that will carry 2 people/600lbs over 150mph on less than 5gph,...

    Too Old? No, but you may be missing a bit of perspective.



    I don't keep 100% up to date on paper, I use apps, for the same reason I use a cell phone instead of a landline. I like money. ...
  15. STC'd experimental avionics - Continued Work?

    With the STCs for Dynon EFIS and Truetrak AP, there was a lot of talk about this opening the door to other experimental avionics in certificated aircraft.

    I attended the 1025 pancake breakfast last month and I enjoyed getting to know that group. It's a little too far to plan regular attendance, but I am hoping that I can make a few more trips out...
  18. Realities of owning a second hand "Experimental Exhibition" Category Aircraft?

    I read a bit about Acro shows a while back, and one of the things that have stuck with me is the "Clipped Wing" aircraft that were modified for performances. Part of me thinks it would be cool to...

    Ron,

    How granular is that data, can you give a breakdown by engine? (I'm particularly curious about the Rotax 582, Rotax 503 and the HKS 700e)
  20. Aerobatic training for beginners?

    I'm finishing up my PPL and I would like to continue learning. I want to pursue some spin/recovery training at a minimum, but ideally, I would like to get the spin endorsement for CFI while also...

    Based on many of the answers here, and some other information gained, I decided against this plane because adding the second set of controls was just too much. Thank you for all of your help.

    Thanks for all of the information. It's good to know that a lack of a transponder is not a dealbreaker. Now I just need to find something with the useable load I want, that is in my price range.

    That list is awesome, I spent almost a year looking for LSA rentals before I gave up and obtained a Class 3 Medical. I hope you continue to grow that list, to make it easier for others to pursue the...
