Did you specifically tell your insurance that Alex would be doing the transition training? My insurance initially said no as well until I told them who Alex was and his credentials. Alex is well known. Insurance issued me a waiver thereafter.
The 7 is just a side by side 8. Alex did my training in his 7 and I picked up my 8 the next week. Highly recommend.
