It is hard to believe you can fly after only 20 hours of training. Talk about a major pucker factor if a problem arises, where you were provided no training!

Seems enough to keep that flying golf cart airborne. If the motor quits you cross your eyes & pray gliding is easy. It's a 2 seater but my parachute would be riding shotgun.
