  One more thing:

At first, hold the stick with 2 or 3 fingers only.  If you use the traditional
grip that we men often use for certain private pursuits, you will most
certainly overcontrol the airplane.

Now you must think I am a troll.

I've taken the plunge. I made an appointment to get 
lessons in an S2!  I'm excited, but concerned.

I could sure use some pointers, and some varying 
opinions on how to accomplish my training with my 
instructor. I'm not sure how structured his lessons will 
be. While doing aerobatic training in my SLOWTABRIA, we 
had very little structure, but hads loads of fun.  And I 
learned a lot. I think the Pitts is going to be a whole 
new animal.  And it's sure going to cost a lot more than 
flying my Citabria.

Any input, tips, recommendations, precautions, 
information sources, etc., would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
