Aircraft: CubCrafters Sport Cub

Rental Rates: $165.00/hour all inclusive

Solo Rentals Available: No

Additional Information: Sparta Airport is ideally suited for tailwheel training. It has intersecting grass runways making for more days with gentle or no cross winds. The runways are well maintained and grass is more forgiving of the new student than hard surface. The CubCrafters Sport Cub is a new version of an old favorite. It is an excellent training platform. It is easy to fly, provides excellent feedback, can be flown with the windows open for that real invigorating flying experience and has a very slow landing speed making your time on the ground easier to manage.
