Sport Pilot ruling; how will it impact you?

I am checking this Sport Pilot stuff out once more and have come to the conclusion it won't effect my flying much in any way; at least not for a few years.
How about you, will this, http://www.sportpilot.org/ present you with new possibilities, new horizons?

I think it depends on how popular it will become. The October issue of Popular Mechanics claims that there are a number of manufacturers which are planning to build small, single engine, two-seaters for the new "market" of pilots. They predicted that many would be available for around $50,000. (The article has a couple of pictures, as well.) If this is the case, it would have an effect on me, making ownership much less expensive. The idea of a weekend, fun plane is very appealing to me.

Excellent point, ScubaSven. Actually that would have come in very handy had it been around when I first opted in.

(BTW, I hope your Feb vacation goes well. The entire thing is novel and interesting.)

Thanks, Skyhook. We were hoping for the vacation to be closer to Christmas, but coordinating schedules was difficult.

So what's the deal with the Sport Pilot license?

Is the ruling actually going to happen, or was it just a proposal?

I saw the cover of the PM magazine you guys mentioned and flipped through it at a magazine rack.

Haven't heard anything else about it.

Sorry guys, just went to the web site listed in the first post. It answers my questions.

It could be very good for my situation. If the pricing is good I might want to get a sport pilot plane where I live. The other plane is based rather far from me and is a pain to get to so there is virtually no spontaneous flying. I could keep one here where I live and use it to go to my other plane if I need more capability. I think I might need a waiver to fly under the Class B however.
