Sportsplanes.com Expands LSA Training Network
As the sport aircraft sector has ramped up in the last couple of years, one concern has been getting enough qualified instructors and sport aircraft at airports around the country to train eager new students. One company working on a solution is Sportsplanes.com, which has created a network of Sport Aircraft Regional Centers. On Wednesday, CEO Josh Foss said Leading Edge Aviation, of Rutherfordton, N.C., is the latest addition to that network. "It was a perfect fit with our plans for expansion," said Greg Turner, manager of Leading Edge. "Sportsplanes.com is headed in the right direction for the future of aviation and we wanted to be a part of it. The aircraft they represent should do very well in our territory of North and South Carolina." Turner has ordered a Skylark for demonstration flights and will be bringing in an Ikarus C42 for flight training.
