A:

Hi Cathy, The 3 hour option takes place over one–two days of instruction and the 5 hour is over two–three days of instruction.

Dear Cathy, Sorry for the delay in replying. We have been flying all day Saturday and Sunday - giving lessons to 9 prospective pilots this weekend and having lots of fun. When you buy the deal, you have a full year to call me to redeem your first 1 hour lesson - but if for some reason you can't in a year then that is ok. I will still honor the deal after the expiry date next October. Once you begin there is also no limit to how long you decide to take to learn. The full course (5 weekender packages) can be completed in as little as 7 days - so you can become a licensed pilot within 1 week. Or you can spread your lessons out over several weeks, several months, or even several years depending on how much time you have available to put into the sport after your work and family commitments. There is no limit nor expiry date to complete the course, just take your time or complete it quickly if you prefer.

Q:

Does the 350lb. weight limit mean per person or total dual weight. Also, I have a private pilot license that was made recurrent in 2010 after 25 years. I have let the medical slide in Jan. 2012. What are the TC medical requirements? and does the 100 or so hours that I have count toward the ultralight license? Thanks, Rick

Dear Richard, You should weigh less than 350 lbs to fit my ultralight, otherwise I won't have any room to sit! If you are heavier than 350, you can still fly but we would need a slightly bigger ultralight. The medical for an Ultralight Pilot Permit is just a class 4 medical declaration. So you can either get your medical current, or if you don't want to keep up your private license then it is easier to maintain an ultralight license without any currency requirements nor having to visit the doctor. If you have your pilot license current, then all you would need is the 5 hour weekender course to get properly trained on this type of Ultralight. So you would not need the full course if you get your private pilot license current. So please buy the 5 hour Weekender deal and I'll get you in the air. We were flying today and it was a BLAST!
