Yes, I have my LSRI-A Certificate now. The class was okay. Nothing earth shattering, but just a required hoop to jump through for the FAA. It consisted of basically quick overviews of the various systems and things to look for during Condition Inspection. Info about logbook entries, Advisory Circular 43.13-1B, and FAR Part 43 - Appendix D was good info..
For me the best part of the class was listening to Jim Scott talk about issues he has seen during the last 20+ years that he has been working on LSA's and Rotax engines. It was also nice to pick his brain about things I have noticed or had questions about, concerning my airplane.
No desire to EVER go back to Apopka, FL.. That place is out of control, re: drugs, overdoses and crime. I checked in and out of three different motels in one night due to dirty rooms at one location, 2nd motel wanted to play bait and switch on the nightly rate and 3rd motel had someone overdose two doors down from me and had a major crime scene. It took me two hours to get through the crime scene, back to my room to collect my belongings and get out of there... I arrived on a Saturday night and couldn't find a decent room due to refusing to stay at motel #1, #2 or #3 and all the good places were booked up due to the Disney crowd and it being a Saturday night.. I ended up sleeping in my truck at Apopka airport the first night!
