I've lurked at cdrlabs for awhile just keeping track of things, and waiting, and waiting, and waiting for dvd read speeds to pick up the pace. Anyway, I came across the link below earlier today and haven't been able to get it out of my mind.
Apparently there is a new sub-private pilot classifiaction targeting "Sport Planes".

Ignoring the <$ and "20 hours" part, this sounds like a fun thing to get into.
Do you know of any, or can you think of any pitfalls for someone (me) who has no clue about anything when it comes to airplanes or flying etc but would want to give this a try??
PS. Yes I know this is random, but as I said I haven't been able to get past it.
