Sport Pilot Buzz And Sun ‘n Fun


While much of the U.S. is griping and groaning its way through a record-setting cold blustery winter, signs of spring are on the horizon. The folks at EAA say they are working away “like elves helping Santa” in anticipation of the sometime-this-year enactment of the FAA’s new Sport Pilot/Light Sport Aircraft rules. On Thursday, the elves said they have posted a list of frequently asked questions about certification and registration of various new light-sport aircraft. Meanwhile, Sun ‘n Fun, EAA’s annual fly-in that kicks off the summer season in Lakeland, Fla., is set for April 13 to 19, and it’s not too soon to start your flight planning — the NOTAMs are already online.
