Best of Show! The Very Best/Worst of Oshkosh '14! (Part 1)

Compiled By The Staff and Readership of the Aero-News Network, Airborne, and Aero-TV (Part 1)

For quite a while, we have recognized the highs and lows inherent in the general and sport aviation community -- and yes, we’ve had a bit of fun in the process--especially as we went through our notes, read all YOUR comments, and put together our thoughts on what has turned out to be one of the most successful aviation events in a long while.

AeroSports Update: When Are We Going To See An Electric Powered LSA?

It Seems Like Electric Power And The Light Sport Aircraft Were Made For Each Other

It does seem odd that electric power has not been used in aircraft that meets the light sport aircraft (LSA) definition. The fact is, it’s the very definition of LSA in FAR Part 1.1 that precludes it from being powered with an electric motor because the rule requires an LSA to be powered with a reciprocating engine.
