brianb0806 Posted July 8, 2008 Share Posted July 8, 2008 Hello all. I am a 155lb newby ready to get started. I have been considering this for many years and finally find myself with the time and finances to do it. I apologize if my questions have been asked and answered before on the forum. I just registered and haven't had time to search through all the posts and I want to get started asap. First, does anyone have any recommendation on training in southern California or Arizona? I have located a couple of places on the net and would like some input. Next, what should I be looking for as far as motor and wing size. I'm not contemplating any acrobatics for a while and actually believe I would be more interested in altitude of maneuverability. I am leaning towards a Blackhawk motor and would like to know pros and cons for the various sizes (100, 172, 313). Basically any advice from the pros or lessons learned from other beginners would be greatly appreciated. I will continue reading the forum and picking up info, but I am ready to start tomorrow and need some direct, to the point advice asap. Thank you all in advance.
