The FAA has defined light-sport aircraft as simple-to-operate, easy-to-fly aircraft that, since initial certification, has continued to meet the following performance definition:
In addition to fixed-wing airplanes as pictured, light-sport aircraft also include powered parachutes, weight-shift control aircraft, balloons, airships, gliders and gyroplanes.
Any aircraft that meets the definition of a light-sport aircraft as called out in 14 CFR Part 1.1 is eligible to be operated by a sport pilot. These aircraft can be certificated in any category, such as standard, experimental amateur-built, experimental exhibition, experimental light sport aircraft (E-LSA), or special light sport aircraft (S-LSA).
For the following aircraft, EAA has received a copy of the airworthiness certificate (FAA form 8130-7) verifying that the company has received at least one Special Light-Sport Aircraft (S-LSA) airworthiness certificate. EAA has not performed any other due diligence on these companies EAA recommends you do a thorough "preflight" of any company from which you are considering an aircraft purchase.
