I know there weren't many of these made and so that makes them harder to find. I am looking for comparable LSAs. The biggest worry is size and useful load. The CFI I will be using is 135lbs and I'm 270. My son who would occasionally be traveling with me is 88lbs. Otherwise, after training, I'd usually be flying solo. What are the other options? The CFI told me with us ,we'd have to bring the 162 down to 20gal of fuel. LSA The normal trip I would take is KHEG to KUZA 288NM straight. I understand with this trip, there will be some diversion due to airspace and possible headwinds so it may be a longer distance. For my needs, sport pilot will be sufficient. However, I am trying to decide if training now will be worth it or waiting til I drop 40lbs, which is doable. I did find a few Flight Design CTSWs for sale but my CFI said he is unaware of that plane. So, maybe a red flag?
