Fly Light Sport CA
Though the crew at Fly Light Sport CA has logged more than 3,000 combined hours in the air, the same can't be said for the fleet—none of the young, modern aircraft flies more than 100 hours a week, ensuring the planes and their engines stay in top condition. During license classes and quick discovery flights along the California coastline, aspiring pilots take the reins of a Remos GX, one of the most advanced planes in the industry. Constructed from a kevlar-carbon fiber, these German-designed, factory-built aircraft boast foldable wings, a safety rocket parachute, the ability to fly without doors, and a high-tech interface—all state-of-the-art features that help pilots feel as if they're flying a modern version of the future's docile cyber-pigeons.
