Welcome Joel, be sure to visit The Airplane Factory, if you haven’t already, in Torrance (KTOA) and fly the Sling 2.

Welcome Joel.

I second that, I was just at The Airplane Factory about 3 weeks ago with another Sport Pilot Talk member while I was out on the west coast. We got a complete tour of the aircraft and factory assembly area. Very good people to deal with and great customer service.

Welcome Joel!

The Aircraft Factory (as suggested) is a great place to visit. Friendly folks, awesome aircraft. I love my Sportcruiser, but if I ever needed 4 seats, that Sling 4 or Sling TSi is definitely a strong contender.

KFUL has the California distributor for Pipistrel. Friendly guy and worth a visit as well. He’s got a box hangar on the SouthEast side (near Hangar 21).

What are you looking for in an LSA? High wing vs. low wing, what’s the mission, etc? (Sorry if I’m being nosey...)
