Dear DJV:
I have seen others on this site with Topeka as their location. I stongly recommend that you see if you can find local fliers for help at the beginning. Posts from your area have indicated it is often windy. If you have calm times in the morning I would recommend you consider the Dragonfly for your first plane. I trained a bunch of people to fly with one as it flies so slowly they have time to think. As you probably learned on the simulator a turn starts with a push of the stick to the side then some up elevator. Don't over control the plane and try to be smooth. If you really don't have any calm air forget the Dragonfly as it doesn't penetrate well in wind. Mike Heer
