The Light-Sport Standardization Selection Board (LSSB) selected 70 candidates last week for the first sport pilot designated pilot examiners (SPE) and sport pilot flight instructor examiners (SFIE) training seminar in January. A total of 107 people sent applications, said Marty Weaver, FAA Light-Sport Aircraft Branch Manager in Oklahoma City.

Thirty-seven applicants were eliminated for various reasons, chiefly because they did not have their paperwork in order, or they did not qualify due to lack of time in LSA aircraft.

Letters of acceptance were sent to the 70 qualified individuals this week from the FAA LSA Branch. The letters are candidates’ ticket to take the initial exam at a designated FAA computerized testing facility. Exams must be taken by December 17. Once test results are received, the LSSB will select attendees for the first SPE and SFIE training seminar scheduled January 17, 2005. Weaver says the plan is to announce the first class before Christmas.

FAA will make a public announcement when it selects the initial eight individuals.
