Free Sport Pilot Rating With LSA Purchase
Rating With LSA Purchase US Aviation Group is offering a free sport pilot rating for anyone who purchases a new LSA from its inventory. “Since people are showing up with the intention of getting the rating and buying an airplane, we decided to offer the instruction free of charge for anyone who buys one of our LSA,” said Mike Sykes, president of US Aviation. “That way they can learn in their own personal aircraft. Some people will face their first long cross-country flight whey they’re finished with the training, so we’ll have an instructor accompany them to their home airport and shoot a few touch-and-goes when they get there.” Located in Denton, Texas, US Aviation is an authorized dealer for Remos, Breezer, Skylark, and the Tecnam Sierra and Bravo. For more information, contact: US Aviation Group, (866) 383-2400, www.usaeroplex.com.
