The idea was to hire a pilot to take off and land and teach me to fly as time went on. Seems that's not going to be an option.I'm curious... how does a non pilot choose to buy a demanding experimental airplane like this?
EDIT- I am told the T-51 is not difficult to fly, and looking at it reveals a very thick wing, much like a Hawker Hurricane. It was originally designed to fly like a Cub, and while subsequent weight increases have increased speeds, they still land at 70mph on final and have benign stall characteristics. The insurance company requires 250 hrs tail wheel time for the "open pilot" option.
