    What composite construction. The Skycatcher is an aluminum airplane,
    except for the composite engine cowling.

    Indeed.

    Really, it's a warmed over C-150 (which is itself a warmed over C-140)
    with reduced gross weight to meet the LSA restrictions. I can't
    imagine spending over 100 big ones on it.

    Not to mention waiting till 2011, as the Cessna sales rep told me today...
