Go flying in a Tecnam light sport aircraft!

January 15, 2009 by Alton K. Marsh, Senior Editor, AOPA Pilot

Visit a sport pilot school via the video below. This one, Chesapeake Sport Pilot, happens to be 90 miles from Frederick, Maryland (AOPA headquarters), at Bay Bridge Airport on the Chesapeake Bay. Get this; the chief flight instructor in the video, Helen Woods, is a marine biologist with a master’s degree in marine science. Her students can identify from the air a school of manhaden, a porpoise, and cow-nosed rays. There are tons of rays in the bay next to Bay Bridge Airport. Here she describes the Tecnam P92 models. They rent for $90 to $100 per hour and include a low-wing model. Up you go! Click here if the video does not play.
