03/15/05 - EAA SPORT PILOT TOUR BEGINS IN JUNE AT GOLDEN WEST

EAA’s first Sport Pilot Tour is just around the corner, beginning June 3-4 at the EAA Golden West Regional Fly-In, Marysville, California. From there stops include St. Louis, Missouri, June 10-11; Franklin, Pennsylvania, June 17-18; and capped by EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2005, July 25-31. Attendees can find out what they need to become a pilot faster, easier, and cheaper than ever before.

EAA’s Sport Pilot Team will provide insights into transitioning, maintenance, medical considerations, and more, as people have the chance to see and fly sport pilot eligible light-sport aircraft. They’ll also receive tips on what to ask before buying an LSA.

Other highlights include sport pilot forums, education for flight instructors, plus light-sport aircraft manufacturer’s displays and demonstrations. An FAA “Wings” safety program related to light-sport aviation is included with the tour.

“Having championed sport pilot for more than a decade before it finally became regulatory reality last summer, EAA is now leading the sport pilot revolution, working with government, industry, and the aviation community to build an infrastructure to support this new realm of personal flight,” said Ron Wagner, EAA manager of field relations.

“We’ll be showing our members, and some of their guests from the general public, that this is an exciting time for recreational aviation, which is rapidly moving to the fore as an affordable outdoor-adventure pastime.”
