FAA WINGS Seminar To Be Held At Sebring

Focus On Becoming An LSA Pilot At The Start Of The LSA Expo

The seminar description kind of makes it sound like there's really nothing to it. "If You Can Drive, You Can Fly" is the title of am FAA WINGS seminar to be held January 18th at Sebring Regional Airport during the annual LSA Expo.

"If you're looking for a Saturday-afternoon stroll through the sky without a lot of burdensome expense and regulation, the FAA created the sport pilot certificate in 2004 for folks just like you. The FAA’s Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) category offers affordable, safe, basic aircraft for many people who would otherwise be unable to fly," the announcement says. "Attend this interesting and exciting safety briefing and learn about light sport aircraft and Sport Pilot privileges!"

Prof. H. Paul Shuch, Ph.D., CFII, LSRM, iRMT will speak to Light Sport Aircraft and the Sport Pilot rules at the session beginning at 0900 EST. The talk will be held at the middle T-hangar in the Sport Aviation Expo forum area.

According to the FAA's seminar description, "over 100 beautiful new aircraft have been introduced, several thousand have been sold, the required time to get a pilot license has been halved, and private pilots flying under these rules no longer have to get a medical certificate." They say the LSA designation has also been a boon to older pilots who no longer have to worry about renewing their medicals or expensive annual checkups for special issuances.

"These aircraft bring modern computer designed technology to general aviation, a field mostly populated by ancient 1940s and 50s designed engines and 40 year old aircraft," the description says. "The new engines are lighter, burn no oil, and aircraft like the Sport Cruiser, cruise at speeds of 125-130 mph on 5 gallons of fuel/hour.  Many are certified by their manufacturers to run on unleaded autogas with up to 10% alcohol."

The seminar is limited to 50 people.
