EminiTrader Posted July 3, 2013 Report Share Posted July 3, 2013 Well I went to demo flight a CTLSi on Monday. I loved the plane. Just looking at it, it seems much taller and roomier than the Skycatcher. Looks really nice. We had a lot of winds and the owner was iffy on going up.. but he seemed like it would be ok... And for the most part it was.. He demonstrated the A/P, let me take controls for awhile, and i really enjoyed it. BUT.. I was feeling a bit lightheaded and a wee little bit queasy. Now, I know it was windy and that certainly didnt help, but I felt this way flying the Skycather as well.. So anyways, I didnt get sick sick but by the time we landed, I was sweaty, and really ready to get out of that plane.. Started having that feeling of "Is this really for me"... So I drove home, but had to pullover within 10 minutes, and found myself sleeping like a rock in a burger king parking lot of I95 for about 40 minutes... Drove home, relaxed, and felt fine again... So I am curious as to how many of you experienced this. I talked to a close friend of mine who is a pilot and said he basically had the same issues. He bought one of those wrist bands (which I just ordered today) and told me NOT to give up - give it 10 hours in the air, with the band, and thinks i'll overcome it.. If you would, please share your experience as I am really curious, and I need a little encouragement!! Thanks gang David Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
