Also agree with the cringe-worthy remark! Then again, anything produced by that fine specimen Dan Johnson makes a little bit of sick come up the back of one's throat!

And what about spinning in a four engine transport. Not to be recommended. Listen to this!

I am a low time , old, pilot and have said since I first flew one that LSA's really need more training than a spam can. Energy management, especially turning finals, can be really delicate. Perhaps not so bad in some of the sleeker models but I owned a draggy amphibian and several times felt a gust slow the ground speed only to find us low on airspeed after, where a Cessna would just slide through it. I always carried 5 knots more than recommended till late finals.

You also tend to get tossed around a bit more, at least you did in mine, which can be disconcerting.

The benefit which supposedly allows less training is slower speeds giving more time to do the job and less inertia allowing quicker repsonse.

I appreciated the easier certification and build standards but always felt that the license hours and tests should be at least the same as PPL.
