Has this category been passed and official now? I'm an air force brat, so I've been interested in flying since I can remember; but given the costs involved for a private pilot licence, I was thinking about dabbling in ultralights. Since I've heard about the sports pilot category though, I've been thinking about going for a sport pilots licence to start with, perhaps as a stepping stone to pursuing a private licence in the future. Does this sound like a good idea? I'm still pretty new at the real deal stuff and I'm doing some research as we speak.
