I’m a rusty old pilot with just over a hundred hours, mostly cross country in a Piper Arrow and my Cherokee 180, haven’t even sat in a plane in 12 years and looking to get back into the air. Sitting in my chair for a few weeks now after lower back surgery and thinking about how short life is and making the decision to get back into the air.
I don’t qualify for Basic Med and the Agent Orange I was exposed to is causing some health problems, even though I passed all the medical tests the FAA required I’ve decided not to deal with them so am looking into LSA aircraft of which I know nothing about.
Been reading up on the subject and the Sport Cruiser, Tecnam 2008 and the CT are the ones I might be interested in although I’ve never been up in any LSA and have no idea what to expect. Another concern is getting into or more importantly getting out of the aircraft after sitting in it for a couple hours because of my back. Seems the high wing might be the deciding factor over wing walking.
Anyway just starting my research on the LSA and looking forward to learning from this Forum and interacting with all of you.
