Anyone have a CT here in Utah?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Been a long time lurker of this forum, and I’m currently at the pre-buy inspection stage with a really nice CTSW (Dual Dynon and it seems well taken care of). I had a chance to do an hour demo flight in the plane and just got back from an extra 1.5 hrs transition training. I have time in a J3 cub and it reminds me a lot of that airplane, with more gadgets and a tri gear.

The only thing that bummed me out is that while I got some transition training, and about 5 workable landings in, the second flight was cancelled because of 15G20 winds, right down the runway (I don’t blame him but I feel I missed out on an experience). On the preflight, The CFI didn’t know where to drain the fuel, didn’t know the v speeds, didn’t want to pull the BRS pin, kept pushing me to climb at best angle rather than best rate, and then complained it wouldn’t climb fast enough. I’m sure he’s a nice guy and a great CFI in other aircraft but I don’t want to repeat this experience.

Ideally, I’d like to meet up with a CFI, but I’d really be grateful to go up with someone who owns and cares for their airplane.

Thanks,

Andreas

Hi Andreas,

Sure hope you find someone to fly with. I’d love to, but I’m a ways away from you (New York).

Two things you might want to pass on to any instructor you fly with:

Flight Training Supplement:

Aircraft Operating Instructions:

Great reading. Don’t give up, it’s an amazing airplane with fantastic performance and efficiency.
