Iowa Lakes Community College Acquires An LSA For Primary Training

Cub Crafters S-2 Has Joined The School's Aviation Program

Iowa Lakes Community College has purchased an LSA which will allow the aviation program to expand its offerings. The 2008 Cub Crafters Sport Cub S-2 was purchased with funds from the sale of two planes from the Iowa Lakes fleet, and last week, officials from the college flew to St. Louis to pick up the aircraft.


Aviation Program Manager Ron Duer

August A. Busch III owned the aircraft and reduced the price of the airplane in exchange for a tax deductible donation. The college used $100,000 from the sale of the other aircraft to pay for the plane. The plane was valued at $120,313. After the transaction was approved by the Iowa Lakes Board of Trustees this week, Busch III took a tax write-off from the remainder of the appraisal.

“This option allows people to do the training for a Light Sport Pilot Certificate in about half the time it would normally take to become a private pilot,” said Ron Duer, Aviation/Airport Management Co-Coordinator/Chief Flight Instructor. “Therefore, it’s a lower cost way to get into flying aircraft.”

“The Federal Aviation Administration adopted the Air Corps medical standards from World War II and those have always been very stringent,” Duer said.

It’s believed that there will be a lot of interest in the Light Sport Aircraft Pilot Certificate. “There are a lot of people who found because of some small medical issues – like high blood pressure – that they were unable to qualify for a FAA medical certificate,” Duer said.  “They now have a path to make their dream of flying come true.”
