08/06/04 - POTENTIAL LIGHT-SPORT AIRCRAFT LIST UPDATED
An updated “Likely Candidates for Light-Sport Aircraft” list is now available on EAA’s sport pilot website. EAA staff has spent the past week updating the list based on the latest information obtained from manufacturers, dealers, and distributors during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2004.
The combined list includes fixed-wing aircraft, weight-shift trikes, and powered parachutes. The three aircraft categories are listed separately, and divided by those manufactured in the United States and those manufactured in Canada or overseas. It includes aircraft that are sold as plans, kits, or anticipated to be sold as ready-to-fly aircraft. (A listing for gliders and gyroplanes will be prepared at a later date.)
Individual manufacturers will make the final decision as to whether a particular aircraft meets the definition of light-sport aircraft and/or the consensus standards, as applicable. While EAA has attempted to make the list as complete as possible, some omissions or errors may appear on the list. Corrections should be directed via e-mail to mailto:email@example.com.
