FAA Accepts Two New, Six Revised ASTM Standards

Clears Path For S-LSA Makers To Sell Planes As Kits

The Experimental Aircraft Association tells ANN that in a Notice of Availability issued this week, the FAA accepted new ASTM light-sport aircraft standards for experimental light-sport aircraft (E-LSA) kits.

The EAA says that opens the door for manufacturers to sell S-LSA approved aircraft in kit form, and LSA gliders. The FAA also accepted six revised standards for special light-sport aircraft (S-LSA).

The two new accepted standards complete what is needed for LSA gliders and E-LSA kit instructions.

  • ASTM Designation F 2563-06, titled: Standard Practice for Kit Assembly Instructions of Aircraft Intended Primarily for Recreation.
  • ASTM Designation F 2564-06, titled: Standard Specification for Design and Performance of a Light-Sport Glider.

The six revised standards are:

  • ASTM Designation F 2245-06, titled: Standard Specification for Design and Performance of a Light-Sport Airplane.
  • ASTM Designation F 2279-06, titled: Standard Practice for Quality Assurance in the Manufacture of Fixed-Wing Light-Sport Aircraft.
  • ASTM Designation F 2295-06, titled: Standard Practice for Continued Operational Safety Monitoring of a Light-Sport Aircraft.
  • ASTM Designation F 2316-06, titled: Standard Specification for Airframe Emergency Parachutes for Light-Sport Aircraft.
  • ASTM Designation F 2339-06, titled: Standard Practice for Design and Manufacture of Reciprocating Spark Ignition Engines for Light-Sport Aircraft.
  • ASTM Designation F 2415-06, titled: Standard Practice for Continued Airworthiness System for Light-Sport Gyroplane Aircraft.
