I was searching for airplane partnership opportunities and happened upon this site. Found a group in Punta Gorda discussing forming a plane partnership that piqued my interest. I used to be an ultralight instructor under the old exemption to the FAR's allowing training in heavy two seat ultralights. I instructed in both 3 axis and weight shift aircraft. That loophole was done away with in favor of Sport Pilot. I would like to get back into aviation after being out of it for quite some time and thought some form of partnership, club, or fractional ownership would be the least expensive way for me to build my hours toward the Sport Pilot certificate and have a plane to fly for minimal monthly costs due to shared ownership and expenses. If there are any other like minded individuals out there I would be interested in hearing from you. Thanks for allowing me to join your forum.
