Took a break in flight training for my ppl. now i want to get back into training. looking over my log book i am 4 hours away from the light sport requirements. our local flight school got 2 of the new cessna light sports. perfect timing!
should i (A)- continue toward ppl. (B)- light sport license.
reading other fourms and articles- some pilots don't even carry passangers that much. so that makes the light sport appealing. cost-training....
but on the other hand, i have 2 girls and would like to take them both up at the same time, vacations, etc...
Main question is what is the number of passangers do you have on a typical flight?
sorry about my spelling. looooong day.
I've had my PPL for about 8 months and have only ever flown with one passenger. I foresee flying with multiple pax in the future, though, mostly on business. Biggest problem for me though, is that the typical small plane can't take three adults unless you sacrifice fuel. Something to consider.
Personally, I think that unless you expect to have a problem getting a third class medical, I'd go for the full Private. You can fly at night, and in more complex/powerful airplanes (with an endorsement).
Take extra care to avoid activities that might detract from flying.
