Although there are
sales bright spots in the light sport aircraft segment, as the 2013 U.S.

reliably mine sales leads from would-be customers who come to Florida

Remember back to when we were student pilots,
with maybe 20 hours under our belts? We all asked our instructors "How
many hours do you have?" Even if the answer came back as "400," we were
in awe because our instructor had 20 times our experience.
course he was a great pilot; he had all those hours. Later, after
earning our private certificates perhaps we met a pilot with 1000 hours,
and then someone with even more flight time and a fancy airplane came
into our aviation life. If we were sharp enough, we soon realized that
