I just switched over to sport pilot training after doing 13 hours toward my PPL. After a lot of thought (and going back and forth on my decision 50 times), I decided this is the best choice for me if I want to fly at all. I don't want to get into details, but I have a very low chance of getting a medical if I apply. I can spend thousands of dollars for the possibility of getting denied and never flying again, or just put that money toward a sport license. Flying has always been my dream, so I'm not willing to risk that. And just to be clear, the medical issues are in the past, and there is nothing that affects my ability to safely operate an aircraft (but we all know the FAA doesn't care about that). The thing is, I'm not sure how much I'll actually be able to fly once I get my license. I'm at the one flight school in my state that has an LSA for rent, a Cessna Skycatcher. I'm not a huge fan of the plane TBH, and this school is way more expensive than the one I was at before. I'm paying $180/hr for the plane and $90/hr for the instructor compared to $120/$45 for a DA20/instructor at my old school. But this is what I'm stuck with if I want to fly, so I'm gritting my teeth and opening my wallet. I'm just wondering if I should keep dumping money into this considering I'll be sharing one rental plane with the entire state, not to mention all the restrictions on sport pilots. I love flying, but I don't want to get this license if I never get to use it. Those of you with just a sport pilot license, how do you feel about all the restrictions? How much does it affect your enjoyment of flying to be limited to daytime VFR, one passenger, etc? And do the majority of sport pilots own an airplane, given the limited rental availability? That's definitely out of the question for me financially. I would love to find a flying club or something but there seems to be nothing for LSAs in my area. Just 172s as far as the eye can see. Any insight would be appreciated!
