  1. congrats on yr sons success in life. i purchases my plane new in 2011 and leased in for flight training at two different schools for just over a year and then converted it to private use after that and really enjoy it. always get compliments on its good looks and to me its the most beautiful light sport design out there. i wish i was more mechanically inclined to do routine maintenance and enjoy that too and some owners do just that and get more enjoyment out of aircraft ownership that way.
  2. lets hope yr 13 yr old son thats 6'2" signs a 75 million 3 yr contract with the NBA in eight years and buys you the mansion next to john travolta in his florida airpark. lol ... maybe get some free dance lessons too. i am 6'6 and with my headset on i still have an inch of clearance with the canopy.
  3. i purchased my new sportcruiser in aug 2011. really enjoy but it has analog gauges instead of glass and saved 20k at the time. i have 1,126 hrs on engine and airframe and have the extra tall flared wingtips on my plane and have been told i lose about ten knots cruise because of that. i pay 155 a month in hanger rent in iowa but in higher rental costs in other states it makes more sense to buy into an airpark and more fun doing so.
  4. merry christmas everyone and happy new year too. love flying and think about it all the time that even before i start my car i yell...clear!!!
  5. glad you found this website and the great advice and support you will find here. welcome aboard
  6. welcome aboard and owning and flying my own plane is more than twice the fun i thought it would be.
  7. welcome aboard and glad you found this site. no such thing as a stupid question here.
  8. the cost of owning and amount of enjoyment of plane ownership are the two things to consider before a purchase. doing yr own maintenance reduces the cost and increases yr fun of owning a plane. argument against purchase then is greatly reduced
  9. if you enjoy doing mechanical work like a hobby and get the training and tools to do maintenance on yr plane; this is a huge argument for buying and owning yr own plane. you get twice the fun in flying and working on it and of course saving lots of money.
  10. josh scheid is trying his best helping sport cruiser owners . he went over and visited the factory in europe after sun and fun and hopefully that will help going forward. wish that all light sport plane manufactures would offer parts and labor warranty for any future design flaws. doing so would really help customer goodwill .
  11. be sure to attend the airshow tue, wed, thur. i would stay away monday, set up day, and friday, saturday and sunday. massive lines and unable to meet and talk to the airplane salesman as easy with fewer people around gawking on tue,wed,thur. bring a notebook and pen and take notes and make sure you ask the questions you want answers to. make sure you sit in the plane and check seat comfort, view etc. all light sport planes are in one area and easy walk and to find from the main gate entrance.
  12. welcome aboard. josh scheid at cruiser aircraft is a great person to work with and knowledgeable and helpful in solving problems of aircraft ownership. to comply with all of the recent service bulletins, a new plane at the price of 148k might be best way to go. oshkosh airshow be worthwhile to attend good luck
  13. welcome aboard scott and happy you found this site that will be so useful for you.
  14. welcome aboard. no such thing as a stupid question on this forum ( unless i ask one)
