Network’s soon-to-be published 12th anniversary SportPlane
Resource Guide will feature the technical expertise and experience
of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA), the acknowledged
leader of the new sport pilot revolution.
The SportPlane Resource Guide, to be published in 2007, will
offer in-depth information regarding the sport pilot certification
and the light-sport aircraft available to enjoy recreational
flight. It will assist aviation enthusiasts interested in this
facet of flight to make well-informed decisions on the right
training, aircraft and resources for their individual needs.
As the new SportPlane
Resource Guide is developed, EAA will provide guidance on sport
pilot/light-sport aircraft matters; provide information on local
and national EAA programs, such as EAA Chapters, Technical
Counselors, Flight Advisors and its other programs; and assist with
outreach to the sport pilot/light-sport aircraft community.
“Just as EAA was a tremendous influence on me as a new
pilot coming into the aviation world a few decades ago, their
mission continues on behalf of a new generation of flyers. Today,
EAA is at the forefront of implementing the sport pilot rule, so
its input is invaluable to any effort to inform and educate those
participating in the exciting, new sport pilot community,”
said Jim Campbell, Aero-News Network CEO and Editor-In-Chief.
The resource guide, which will feature a directory and
informative how-to sections, will provide impartial specifications
and analysis of an aircraft’s capabilities. It will also
provide specific direction to those interested in flying
light-sport aircraft as a sport pilot.
“As the sport
pilot community grows and develops, the key to its success is
getting the right information in as many outlets as
possible,” said EAA president Tom Poberezny.
“EAA is opening the doors to those who want to fly as
sport pilots and is ready to serve those ready to seize the
opportunity. EAA wants to ensure that sport pilots have everything
they need to make the right decisions for them.”
EAA will also make the new SportPlane Resource Guide available
through its various merchandising outlets, and help sport pilots
discover ways to enjoy aviation on a local level through
participation in EAA activities and programs in their own areas.
EAA, The Leader in Recreational Aviation, is an international
association with 170,000 members and 1,000 local Chapters. To join
