Because of the current economy, being able to offer a flight training course that gets people flying in less time and for half the cost of a regular Private Pilot's License is exciting
Panama City, FL (PRWEB) July 6, 2009
The FAA recently announced a new category of pilot training certification, called the Sport Pilot Certificate / Light Sport Aircraft (LSA).
The new Light Sport Certificate allows pilots to fly solo, with the option to bring one additional passenger, in a light sport aircraft in about 25 hours.
Light Sport Aircraft are a relatively new class of simple-to-fly, lightweight, two-seater aircraft. The Light Sport Training Course offered by Island Air Express Flight School in Panama City, Florida is opening doors to more people who want to learn to fly, but may not have had the budget or the time to get a full Private Pilot License (Certificate).
"Because of the current economy, being able to offer a flight training course that gets people flying in less time and for half the cost of a regular Private Pilot's License is exciting," explained Mr. Jarmon of Island Air Express. These new aircraft can fly on automobile gasoline, so they are less expensive to fly.
Popular light sport airplane models include the Zodiac CH 650 LS and the Zenith air STOL CH 750 designed by Chris Heintz.
