Technologically advanced aircraft (TAA) have fully integrated glass cockpits with, to name a few features, satellite weather, traffic advisories, terrain warning systems, electronic approach plates, attitude-based autopilots with flight-level change and flight directors, plus 130 channels of entertainment. For anyone in the market for a new LSA, whether for commercial training fleets, first-time aircraft buyers or last-time buyers, here are 10 things to consider when poring over the emerging fleet of LSAs. 1 COCKPIT STANDARDIZATION If you're a seasoned aviator or aviatrix, one oddity that may grab you about sport aircraft is that there seems to be little cockpit configuration standardization among manufacturers.
