I started flying in the UK in 1985 in using a home built single seat Trike (Tarjani) with a Solar Wings Typhoon (hang glider) wing – this was great fun to fly.  Microlight regulations were then introduced into the UK and to stay legal I purchased a Solar Wings (later to become Pegasus)  XL two seat trike powered by a Rotax 447.  With this trike I gained my UK PPL Microlight license at the Solar Wings Clench Common  training school.  I moved to Florida in 1989, obtained my Private Pilot Certificate, and flew Cessna 152s and 172s for a while.   After a visit to Sun ‘n Fun I purchased a Rans S12 kit with a Rotax 582 engine.  Sun ‘n Fun is large EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) air show and fly-in held each year in April at Lake Land FL – well worth a visit if you have time.   I built and then flew the S12 for over 400 hours.   While I had the Rans I also gained an instrument rating (not in the Rans!) using a Piper Cherokee.  I decided to go back to Trike flying, so purchased a Mainair Rapier Trike with a Rotax 503 and became a USUA Flight Instructor after training at Herlong airfield in Jacksonville FL.  I operated Atlantic Sport Aviation Inc. from Titusville Airpark FL giving WSC training in the Rapier and Ultra-light airplane training in the Rans S12.  The training went very well so I purchased a Mainair Blade 912 and imported a number of Mainair trikes into the US.  We exhibited Mainair trikes at a few Sun ‘n Fun air shows – with the Blade we demonstrated the first ever Rotax 912 powered trike at Sun ‘n Fun -comments heard -  a 912 is far too much power for a trike and will never catch on!  As a USUA instructor  I trained students on a variety of Trikes including Airborne both Wizard and Streak wings , Air Creation,  North Wing, Mainair, Pegasus  - now combined to form P& M Aviation I also built and flew in this period a Quicksilver MX on floats, which has fun to fly over the St John’s River. I’m a CFI Light Sport both Airplane and WSC, completing my airplane CFI training using a Valor A22 at Southern Maine Aviation and gaining the WSC endorsement at Crow Island MA using Airborne trikes.
