    I don't think there is any definite age learning correlation. I'm 46 and learn new systems almost on a weekly basis. And I'm no smarter than anyone else. You have to want to learn. A background in GA may make it harder due to having to unlearn some ...

    Abbott half your age. That's generally how many hours you need. That's Wat I was told when I was training and it's been close to that in everyone I know

    One also has to remember that a CFI is also concerned with the welfare of all others in the air and on the ground, an early solo effects many more than the student himself. Each individual is different, thank god, and each will have different needs. ...

    Hang in there Bob, you will get there. I would agree with Abid's statement here. I soloed after about 15 hours, I believe I was 32 years old when I soloed.

    13 to 15 hours is absolutely normal for someone who is 20's or 30's. I know this is hard for many of us to accept but it is what it is. In my experience it demonstrates itself over and over, save an exception here or there. The trend is clear.

    Hope to see you again very soon Chuck. Glade, thanks for the stats. More and more folks are chiming in with 20~30 hours before solo, it is good to hear my 10.8 to solo GA aircraft just isn't applicable to learning weight shift in breezy conditions. ...

    Hang in there Bob. My solo was at about 22 hours, and I was glad for every dual-hour behind me as I first ascended alone. At a couple of points during that first solo I was, indeed, wishing that I'd had a few more dual-hours behind me. It's not ...

    Bob, The winds will die down soon as you know. I find flying at sunrise and sunset the most enjoyable and you've got a great set up there - come out your front door, preflight and taxi - it doesn't get any better that that. The last night I was ...

    Weather since the last lessons for my skill level has been pretty much no go every day. Too windy. There has been a few strings of around 5 landings that were good and unassisted but not 10. In fact the last two landings he came in on so I really ...

    Monty, true words, but regarding the word comfortable. I think Bob meant because he is comfortable so he is able to learn at an accelerated rate. And there is a lot of truth to that. Except I would say you must be comfortable in order to learn ...

    As I said enjoy the journey. Think of your CFI as a friend put in there by your insurance company. An hour or two. I think the test is can you do 10 landings without him coming in or helping and obviously without any surprises like a hard jolt to ...

    Monty, sorry you had to wade through so much verbal dribble to post but I'm glad you did. Your post has mirrored many others, so believe it or not I'm coming around. I just finished reading a post from Loch Schwarz in S Germany on Trike Pilots LSA ...
