06/28/05 - EAA ESTABLISHES LIST OF FACTORY BUILT S-LSA
A complete list of sport pilot-eligible aircraft, including special light-sport aircraft (S-LSA), standard category and experimental aircraft, is now available on the EAA Sport Pilot website. EAA assembled the list as an easy reference for sport pilot enthusiasts to learn which aircraft meet the definition of a light-sport aircraft and which of the latest designs meet the ASTM consensus standards for design, production, quality assurance, maintenance, and continuing airworthiness.
“So many manufacturers have indicated an interest in producing an S-LSA that it has created confusion for people wanting to purchase an S-LSA now,” said Charlie Becker, director of EAA Aviation Services. “They don’t know who can legitimately state that they meet the ASTM standards, and that is why we put together this list.”
For manufacturers to have their S-LSA included on the list EAA must receive a copy of the airworthiness certificate (FAA form 8130-7) to verify the company has received at least one S-LSA airworthiness certificate. If you are a manufacturer or dealer and would like your S-LSA included, please send a copy of your S-LSA airworthiness certificate to EAA Aviation Services, P.O. Box 3086, Oshkosh, WI 54903-3086, or e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
EAA will continue to update this list as more S-LSAs are certificated. EAA will also create and post a list of certificated experimental light-sport aircraft (E-LSA) as they become available.
