Gilligans Airport Posted March 29, 2022 Report Share Posted March 29, 2022 Hello, calling myself a new member despite a few posts a year ago -- because I finally had a chance to fly a SC and I feel born again! Ok, enough of the hyperbole, sorry. 😁 I really enjoyed the SC I flew at Thrust Flight over the weekend -- comfortable, great vis, handled well, easy to fly and land. Overall compared quite favorably in my eyes to the RV-12, which I've been flying/training in for the past year, scraping away 27 years of ground rust. I liked having fuel in the wings and a chute in the cabin, too. One question I have is the extent to which the awkward climb into and out of the plane will become routine and unobjectionable, or whether my mid-50s frame will become ever less able to contort itself as necessary to clamber in and out -- I suppose that's one area where the RV-12 excels: it's no big deal for me to get in and out of the RV from the step in front of the wings, with an easy step down to the cockpit floor. Do you all you SC fliers -- particularly those of you, like me, who've been around the sun a few times -- have any tips in this department?
