    Experimental (SLSA) No Longer Allowed for Flight Training??

    I’m willing to instruct in most any plane so long as the owner allows me to get some time in it to familiarize myself. The big issue as you stated is getting a DPE to give check ride.

    Experimental (SLSA) No Longer Allowed for Flight Training??

    What do you think about "e-soaring"?

    I get it. Still feels like cheating when I’m flying one that has a windmill. Half the adventure is the possibility of landing out

    What do you think about "e-soaring"?
