First, I want to say thank you to the EAA and the rest of you for making it possible for me to fly.

 

I'm one of those that can't get a Class 3 medical but has a Valid State Drivers License.

 

Now to my problem.

 

I can't seem to locate anyone to provide training for the Sport Pilot that has an aircraft I can rent to take instruction in that is closer than about a 2 hour drive, one way.  I can find CFI's at my local airport that is willing to train me, but the local airport doesn't have any LSA for rent.

I live in Athens, Georgia.  If you have any ideas that can help I'm open to hearing them.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Hi Greg -

Have you checked the list here?

http://www.sportpilot.org/instructors/georgia_1.html

I don't know my Georgia geography so I can't say how close any of them might be, but, if you haven't seen the list, it's worth a look.

Regards -

Hal

 Thank you.  I have looked at it and emailed those instructors.  None of them with LSA to rent are closer than 1 1/2 hours the other side of Atlanta without traffic.

Try Habersham County Airport, it is an hour drive from Athens. Jim Tatum teaches light sport in a Taylorcraft L-2 (dco65). He is very reasonably priced and a load of fun to fly.

Thanks.  After looking up the Taylorcraft I see that it's a taildragger to, awesome.

I sent you a PM asking if you had his number.  Thanks for the help.
