The Light-Sport Aircraft (LSA) category encompasses many types of aircraft including airplanes, gliders, powered parachutes, and lighter-than-air aircraft that may be much different in design than the typical “general aviation” aircraft. Many of the emerging aircraft designs promise to account for significant growth in aviation.

Many of the inspection and maintenance requirements for LSAs are unique to these types of aircraft.  Written for the owner of any LSA this book covers all the basic methods and techniques that are needed to inspect and maintain a Light Sport Aircraft.
