Aero-TV Redux: Sport Aviation Perspective--What Obstacles Exist In LSA Purchase?

2010 Sport Aviation Expo Attendees Reflect on the LSA Market

ANN Note: In light of the amazing responses we've gotten to recent editorial commentary, and especially comments specifically made about the cost and value of the LSA industry, we decided to run this piece, shot at the 2010 Sebring Sport Aviation Expo in which interested flyers commented about THEIR own concerns and whatever obstacles might be in the way of an LSA purchase... enjoy! -- Jim Campbell, ANN-E-I-C

On January 21st through January 24th, 2010, sport aviation enthusiasts gathered at the Sebring Regional Airport for the annual Sport Aviation Expo. Held in Sebring, Florida, the Expo is the place to see, buy, and sell aircraft operating under the LSA rule such as fixed-wings, trikes, powered parachutes, motor-gliders, and gyroplanes.

 In addition, LSA industry leaders display the latest in sport aviation technology including new aircraft and electronics. The Expo also provides educational forums, such as training programs and insurance seminars, specifically geared towards aviation’s Sport Pilot.

For many, the LSA market provides an affordable opportunity to engage in the aviation community at prices far less expensive than with general aviation; many LSA pilots and aircraft owners who might have otherwise been unable to participate in the aviation community can enjoy flying at new and exciting levels. At the Sport Aviation Expo, newcomers to the industry can learn more about LSA, compare available aircraft in the LSA market, get demonstration rides, and receive guidance on financing, insurance, and training.

Each year, the Sport Aviation Expo continues to be one of the largest events in the LSA community. Aero-TV took the time to speak with attendees to gather their perspectives on light sport aviation. In the first part of the three-part series, we asked LSA enthusiasts what they believe are the greatest obstacles to getting involved in the light sport market.
