Sport pilots are eager to get in the air with the recent hype surrounding light sport aircraft (LSA). But LSAs bring their own set of safety concerns. The AOPA Air Safety Foundation has some helpful resources for new and experienced LSA pilots. The GPS for VFR Operations online course explains how to get the most from the GPS system. The Sport Pilot Checkride Guide is beneficial for the beginner, featuring a compact reference guide on practical test standards, eligibility requirements, flight and aeronautical experience requirements, and required endorsements. Read more about the new generation of aircraft on the AOPA sport pilot and LSA Web page.
