    Yes, but that doesn’t mean much in the context of ab initio training. Subject of course, to the usual p61 mess :)

    An important capability difference – the C152 is approved for intentional spins.

  3. CB says:

    A J160 is pretty much the same as a Cessna 152 in terms of size and capability, you can put a VH or 24 on the side of one. You can make a case that punting around in a microlight isn’t the same, but a modern LSA is as much a “real plane” as any other basic trainer.

    Well put. That’s where my concerns are…

    Unfortunately, it’s not a question for many GA employers either. It’s a flat out “No”. Even though they have never sat in a LSA they don’t think the experience is relevant.
    That is what we are trying to change. We were of much the same opinion until we started this journey, so we understand where they are coming from.
    Sadly, those that take the use of LSA to extremes in the training process are reinforcing the notion of irrelevance.

    We’ve been doing RA as a stepping stone to GA and CPL for more than 10 years now, it’s not really a question :)

  9. BC says:

    Oh the mighty foxbat . How come it doesn’t have flightscope aviation decals on it? Maybe Jimmy Serrano can organise and I’ll make sure it gets lots of coverage online.
