I had the opportunity to meet Pat at his hangar in KBJC. He has started his annual condition inspection and the wings were off.
Pat provided me with good information and answered my questions.
Firstly, his plane is beautiful.
I saw some things that I liked more than the S-19 which is what I have been looking to purchase. All planes have pluses in minuses. His plane convinced me that I need to fly the left seat to see if I would purchase one of these RV12s in lieu of the S-19.
I have a message into Flying Cacti in Glendale, AZ which rents and gives lessons in a RV12 S-LSA. I plan to go down there for a flight and if I like it full sideways transition training.
Before I go, I want to know if anyone knows where I can get left seat time in the RV12 that is closer than Glendale, AZ to me in Loveland, CO.
