I am considering buying an E-LSA. As a 40-year+ pilot with a current BFR there is no problem with my flying this plane legally. My problem is that it is a taildragger, and I haven't flown one in many years - nor am I familiar with the type.

In addition, the plane is uninsured at present (owner bought & is flying a different plane). So I need to find an instructor willing to check me out in the plane - and to obtain insurance coverage for the flight. I, of course, want to try this plane out before committing to buy it. It is located in central NC. Any ideas or leads would be appreciated.

BTW - I own and fly a certified A/C - but don't know if my insurance would cover any other aircraft I might fly (will check on that).

What kind (type, make, model) of plane is it Dave?

E-LSA doesn't tell us very much.

I built an avid taildragger twenty years ago.  I'm at FA40, not convenient to you, but if I'm your only choice, well ...

 

wonder why the owner won't get insurance on it to give you a demo ride?  hmmm.
