03/22/07 - EAA PROVIDING SUPPORT TO FAA FOR E-LSA REGISTRATIONS AT SUN ’N FUN
The FAA will provide on-site registration during opening day (April 17) at the Sun ’n Fun Fly-In in Lakeland, Florida, for a limited number of EAA members who wish to transition an ultralight to the experimental light-sport aircraft (E-LSA) category. The first 50 EAA members who sign up in advance will be eligible to have an FAA employee review and process their registration materials for issuance of an N-number at Sun ‘n Fun.
Those able to take advantage of this special offer will help ensure they’ll meet the January 31, 2008, conversion deadline in plenty of time, as well as decrease turnaround time for registering their E-LSA.
Here is how to become eligible:
Contact EAA no later than April 12 by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, with “Sun ‘n Fun E-LSA Registration” in the subject line. Provide your name, address, phone, e-mail address and EAA membership number. After your information is verified, EAA will return an e-mail assigning your appointment time with the FAA on April 17. Plan to have your registration forms completed and ready to turn in to the FAA at your scheduled time.
EAA’s E-LSA conversion kit has all the necessary forms and can be ordered by calling 800-843-3612, or order online.
This EAA/FAA service will help individuals register their E-LSA in less time and assure they do not have unnecessary delays because of improperly completed paperwork. If you already have a reserved N-number, you will need to bring evidence of that, otherwise you will be assigned the next available N-number.
