I'd bet that the 150 is a mor forgiving aircraft than your Challenger.
I've flown many 150s and 152s as well as other fixed wings and
helicopters. I also own and fly a trike, yes very 103 legal. The 150
is a cinch to fly compared to the various hanggliders and ultralights
that I've flown. After all, it was mostly used for training.

I doubt you could do it in a Cub. I took up a guy who was 6'5" and weighed
235 in a Cessna 152, and it was a major struggle - both for him and for
me.
How about training in something like a C-172? If you get trained in
something and get a GT-500 I guarantee you will love it. I've flown one,
and own a GT-400.

I fail to see how adding Sport Pilot has any effect on pilot training
other than an option now for people who want to do that kind of flying
to do something less expensive than the normal PPL route.

OK, Let me see. You take a BFI or AFI right now who is BARELY making any
$$$$$ training in a QS Sprint II under the USUA exemption. Now, take away
that exemption. Now, make him HAVE to take extra training ($$$$$), spend
extra $$$$$ to get the machine accepted as SP, then after 2008 (or 9 or 10)
THAT plane can NOT be used for training anymore, so buy a 50, 60, 70, 80
THOUSAND DOLLAR NEW trainer, make sure it gets annual inspections that YOU
can NO LONGER do ($$$$$), etc., etc., etc. and poof, there goes another USED
TO BE ultralight instructor. They will NOT be training if all they are doing
is losing $$$$$$$.

Oh, but, you say, just go to the friendly, neighborhood CFI. Great, except
he flies a Cessna 152 or 182, which has NO flight characteristics of that
little Airbike or Kolb Firefly you have your eyes on. He tells you ULs are
death traps that NO one should ever be caught dead or alive in and pushes
you towards that PPL. GEE, does HE have some kind of incentive to teach DOWN
(in HIS mind) to the UL level OR does he want you to spend 40+ hours with
him getting that PPL?

In simple terms, once the BFI/AFI exemptions are gone, UL instructors will
be gone and we'll be back to the "good old days" of teaching ourselves how
to fly by crow-hopping and bending airplanes until we finally figure it out
(or die trying). That's how it WAS in the early 1980s, funny how EVEN the
FAA thought THAT was a bad idea (that IS why we got the training exemptions
in the FIRST place).

Uh, Mr Starin, ISTR that you started this thread with the subject
heading "Fat Guys" and indicated your height and weight without
any mention at all as to what percentage of that was fat.

So perhaps you can understand why some one replying thought
that you were describing yourself as fat, even if you stopped
short of admitting to being ugly too.

Anyhow, it sounds like you're too heavy for a FAR 103 ultralight.
Heck, it sounds like you could kick start a 747. By the time you
include clothing and fuel, only one of which is optional, the plane
would have to lift 235% + of it's empty weight.

There is sport pilot.

First thing Andy start eating healthy and exercise everyday. That doesn't
mean lifting weights. Lose at least 100 pounds then go back to looking for
a LSA. You say you won't be getting the GT500 for a few years so you have
plenty of time to lose 100 pounds. Lose only one pound a week and you will
do it in less then two years. You asked for fresh ideas well this may not
be fresh but it is the most realistic.

Thanks, John! That's the one. Price is still too hefty for an 8 ounce piece of mass

one, but I guess it won't hurt to ask, so... anyone have a trashed/parts-only free air
version 447 or 503 with this part 910-417 Ignition Housing they want to sell for Best Offer?

Hello BlueSkies, to answer one of the earlier posters... how can this be
spam when its a release of a new product and its an aviation only
product ??

Anyway, the Screw It's are metal (Steel) not aluminum, It's a
lightweight steel that is also heat treated for strength after the
welding is completed. Thanks Michael
