It handles and performs like the Krosno- big two place metal ship. when it was flown at Sylvania, the commercial pilots never raised the landing gear. Our 1-34 also has retractable landing gear and that has never been a problem for our private pilots.
The only major difference is that the lark has flaps. Obviously that will take extra training, and we should limit who flies the Lark because of the flaps, but I don’t think the “Flaps” should be a make or breake issue.
The number one reason to purchase the Lark is to get another two place ship with a CG hook.
I have felt that we should start to replace our 2-33’s with two place trainers witch have a CG hook.Art
