Light Sport Aviation arrives at the FTC!
Updated: Apr 22, 2021
Ok you aspiring Sport, Private and even Commercial Pilots.... We cannot begin to express how excited we are for this stunning, fun, easy to fly, easy to master, roomy, great visibility, high wing, wicked equipped, slow flying (yes, it is a cool thing).... Well, you get the idea..
It is the 2018 Aeroprakt A32 Vixxen! In the realm of light sport aviation, this is arguably one of the top aircraft on the market and it is available and ready at the Flight Training Center. Fun fact... You can get a Private Pilot's license in this airplane! Could this be the budget friendly 152 of the modern era? I'll let that sink in for a moment. Yes, we used to fly 152's because they were quite a bit more friendly on the wallet.
Let's peel back some of the coolness here for a bit shall we?
All Metal Construction - Tough, Rugged, Safe
STOL Beast - The short takeoff and landing performance is ridiculous.
♫ "I can see clearly now...." ♫ - The windows go to the floor for crying out loud. If you wanna see the world around you.... Wow.
Garmin Garmin Garmin - Flown the Garmin G3 Touch yet? What about the Garmin GFC 500 Autopilot? You can now.
Powerplant - Sporting a Rotax ULS 912, 100 HP, Fuel sipping, Quiet as you can imagine engine means that you can sip along on your fuel burn at a silly ~5GPH. Which means low cost.
Light Weight, Big Muscles - It has a useful load just shy of 600 lbs.
Training - Sport and Private Pilot training can be conducted in the Aeroprakt.
A number of instructors at the FTC are qualified and available to conduct training right away in an aircraft that is budget friendly but packed with the absolute standard in modern avionics.
