EAA Submits PPC LSA Repairman Course For Approval
April 6, 2006 — EAA SportAir workshops submitted its 16-hour powered parachute LSA repairman inspection-rating course to the FAA, and pending approval, will hold the first session June 9-11, 2006, at the EAA Aviation Center in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
Per FAA requirements, the repairman course is 75 percent classroom and 25 percent hands-on projects. Students will take a 50-question written test at the end of the course and must score 80 percent or better to pass. Individuals then receive a certificate of completion, with which they can apply for an FAA repairman certificate with inspection rating. A repairman certificate allows the owner of an experimental light sport aircraft (E-LSA) to perform annual condition inspections on any (E-LSA) powered parachute they own.
The FAA allows no more than 16 students in a course, so those wanting to attend are advised to sign up as soon as possible. Tuition is $299 for EAA members, $339 for non-members. To enroll in this or any SportAir Workshop, or to learn more, call 800/967-5746 or visit www.sportair.org.
