					                      Possible Sport-Pilot Eligible Aircraft
                                          Printer friendly PDF

This list comprises all aircraft—homebuilt, kit-built, and ready-to-fly—that meet the definition of a
light-sport aircraft as outlined in the final sport pilot/light-sport aircraft published on July 27, 2004.
A sport pilot may fly any aircraft that meets the definition of a light-sport aircraft, no matter what
its certification category.

However, each manufacturer will make the determination as to whether it will sell sport-pilot
eligible aircraft. This list will be updated as manufacturers confirm or deny their intention to
comply with the regulations.

This list includes aircraft that will be sold as experimental amateur-built kits (51 percent),
experimental light-sport aircraft (E-LSA), which can be more than 51-percent complete, and the
new category of special light-sport aircraft (S-LSA) that are sold as ready-to-fly aircraft.

Experimental amateur-built aircraft that meet the definition of an LSA can be flown by sport pilots
or those holding higher pilot certificates. Once completed, the aircraft is registered as an
experimental amateur-built aircraft and must be operated in accordance with the operating
limitations given to the aircraft at the time it receives its airworthiness certification. It must be
maintained and inspected in accordance with the maintenance requirements for amateur-built
aircraft.

Experimental light-sport aircraft (E-LSA) may also be flown by sport pilots or those holding higher
pilot certificates. Before any aircraft can be sold as an E-LSA kit, the manufacturer must build one
aircraft to completion in compliance with consensus standards developed by the ASTM industry
group and accepted by FAA. The aircraft must then be operated in accordance with the operating
limitations given the aircraft at the time it receives its airworthiness certification. It must be
maintained in accordance with the consensus standards. It may be inspected by a repairman with
an inspection rating, a repairman with a maintenance rating, or an A&P or other FAA-rated
mechanic.

Special light-sport aircraft (S-LSA) must be built by the manufacturer, or its designee, in
compliance with the consensus standards developed by the ASTM industry group and accepted
by FAA. These aircraft are delivered ready-to-fly and may be used for training or rental. The
aircraft must be operated in accordance with the operating limitations given the aircraft at the time
it receives its airworthiness certification. It must be maintained in accordance with the consensus
standards. It must be inspected by a repairman with a maintenance rating, and A&P or other
FAA-rated mechanic.

Foreign aircraft sold in the United States as S-LSA must meet the following requirements:
    • Its country of origin must have a bi-lateral agreement with the Federal Aviation
        Administration. (See the bilateral agreements)
    • The aircraft must be eligible to operate in its country of origin.
    • The aircraft must meet the consensus standards developed by the ASTM industry group
        and accepted by FAA.

Disclaimer: The manufacturers listed above may or may not choose to qualify aircraft under the proposed Light
Sport Aircraft category. It is not certain all candidate aircraft can qualify.

U.S. importers are shown and the manufacturer name is shown in parentheses afterward. All listed imported brands
are presumed to have U.S. market potential sufficient to allow them to justify the effort of certifying under Light Sport
Aircraft. While Light Sport Aircraft allows two seats, some buyers will seek single seaters for performance and other
reasons.
