Light-Sport Category

Light-Sport Category – With respect to aircraft certification, the light-sport category adds a new
group of aircraft based on the definition in ? 1.1, limiting size, weight, and speed, and how the aircraft is
equipped. This category contains four classes of aircraft: airplanes and gliders, powered parachutes,
weight-shift-control, and lighter-than-air aircraft. The factors of intended aircraft use, operating
limitations, and privileges of this category place it in hierarchy between the primary and experimental
categories.
