Five Exciting Destinations for a Sport Pilot

 Five Exciting Destinations for a Sport Pilot


Children love to dream about adventurous experiences such as becoming astronauts, rock stars and pilots. As we become adults, we find ourselves revisiting those  dreams and realize that we forgot what they meant to us.

Piloting an aircraft is a dream shared by so many, yet achieved by so few, often because of a lack of information about the benefits and ease of attaining such a privilege. Fortunately, there is now the sport pilot license, which will authorize you to fly an airplane with a passenger. Since a sport pilot license requires safety training and not the rigorous of training a private pilot for night flight or commercial pilot for an airline requires, it is more affordable than a private pilot license. You can rule the skies, just like in your dream. Here are just some of the diverse places your sport pilot license can take you once you have that golden ticket.

  1. Fly your significant other to a new city for a romantic date.

Everyone has a favorite restaurant – somewhere you go for every anniversary, and probably birthdays as well. It’s always nice, it isn’t too far away, and you know exactly what to expect. The trouble is, as human beings, we often appreciate the new and exciting, so that perfect restaurant can become boring after a few visits. So for your next special occasion, you can pick a place in a city that you two have never seen before, and have a brand new experience.

2) Fly to the Bahamas.

New regulations enable sport pilots to fly to the Bahamas. That relaxing island getaway is just a short flight away with picture perfect views all the way there. Spend time relaxing by the beach, and fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing outside the window of your resort. In the morning, stroll the beach and pick up a few shells to take back as souvenirs. When you fly, even the trip home is exciting, with picturesque ocean views from the sky.

3) Fly to the Florida Keys.

Every beach over in Florida has heard of Key West, where fishing, diving and shopping as the main attractions. Maybe you’ve even visited the Keys before. Once. Unfortunately, the other thing everyone in Florida knows about Key West is that there is one way in and it takes all day to get there. Lucky you, with your sport pilot license. You and a friend can spend all day soaking up the South Florida sun instead of having seven-hour punch-buggy marathon in the car.
