I am looking for an LSA that I can use to take my girlfriend and I camping for the weekend and maybe eventually do some XC flights.
So what I want is a 2 seat aircraft that has room for a passenger and maybe 2 medium backpacks worth of stuff. I have seen some Airborne trikes that have a belly bag and side bags that seem to fit the bill but I am having a hard time locating a CFI who can train weight shift.
So I was looking at things like the FlightStar, HawkArrow II, GT500, Excalibur and Challenger. I plan to buy used and have a budget of $15,000 that I can go over slightly if it is very worth it. Eventually it would be nice to throw floats on there too but that is in no way a deal breaker.
Any advice would really be appreciated.
