FAA Experimental Light-Sport Aircraft Designated Airworthiness Representative (E-LSA DAR)

E-LSA DARs
The Experimental Light-sport Aircraft (E-LSA) FAA Designated Airworthiness Representatives (DARs) are appointed by the FAA to inspect and certify transitioning ultralight trainers and kit-built LSA aircraft. See
FAR 21.191(i)(1) and 21.193(e) for further information about qualifying LSA aircraft.

E-LSA DARs are issued FAA Function Code 47, which authorizes them to “issue recurrent/original and replacement special airworthiness certificates, experimental for the purposes of operating U.S. registered light-sport aircraft.”

E-LSA DAR Directory
To locate an E-LSA DAR to inspect your aircraft, or your completed aircraft project, go to the state-by-state directory (below), then locate and select an E-LSA DAR closest to your home.

Note: The below E-LSA DAR directory information is obtained directly from the FAA DAR Directory, dated 12/22/2008. EAA acknowledges that not all FAA DARs with Function Code 47 are listed within this EAA directory.

Note: The E-LSA DAR may be limited in the classes of aircraft he/she may be able to inspect and certify. You will need to contact the E-LSA DAR to determine their individual limitations.


EAA Volunteer DAR
= E-LSA DARs are FAA DARs who have volunteered to provide their certification services to other EAA members for a reduced cost, usually only the actual expenses incurred such as, traveling to and from the location of your aircraft, meals, hotel expenses, etc.

Note: EAA strongly recommends you contact one of the EAA Volunteer E-LSA DAR’s as your first step in preparing to get your experimental light-sport aircraft inspected and certificated by the FAA. The EAA Volunteer E-LSA DAR’s are listed below with the states they are authorized to inspect and certify E-LSA aircraft in.


EAA Mem Rec DAR
= E-LSA DARs whose past services have been highly appreciated by other EAA members, who now wish to recommend them to other EAA members.

Note: After having your aircraft inspected, if you would like to recommend the E-LSA DAR to other EAA members, please let us know at govt@eaa.org or 888/322-4636 ext. 6522.

Note: If you contact an E-LSA DAR in this directory and he/she no longer does inspections on experimental light-sport aircraft or they don’t inspect your type (complexity, class, etc.) of aircraft, please let us know at govt@eaa.org or 888/322-4636 ext. 6522.. Only by your direct involvement in maintaining this directory can we keep it current.

To find E-LSA DAR’s who may not be listed within this directory call EAA Aviation Services at 888-322-4636.

    TIP: If you’re going to print the directory, we recommend you print in the landscape print mode.
