I’ve been contemplating getting my private pilot license for some time now but have been hesitant. One of my hesitations is that I’m petrified of the small planes but I know I can conquer this fear but learning to fly. In addition, I think it would be an amazing outlet for my family and I to go places on weekends, etc we wouldn’t normally go to (we live in CA).
Anyhow, I seem to have this fixation in my head that the lower winged aircraft like the SR20 or SR22 would be less fearful for me vs. the 172. Can someone please give me any insight as to training on the SR2 vs. the 172 and if I am out of my mind trying to do this with a fear of small aircraft?
I’ve found an instructor I really mesh well with and think would be fantastic if I actually go through with this. Not sure if I should mention this to me or not. Hopefully there’ll be others out there that have gone through a similar scenario to which I’m describing.
Many thanks in advanced!
