    News | 02 Apr 2015 13:42

    Sun-n-Fun in April 2015 will mark the 10th anniversary of the introduction of the light-sport aircraft sector in the USA. Both Evektor and Flight Design obtained their S-LSA certificates on the opening day of that 2005 show. Conceived by the FAA as a way to bring ultralights under FAA influence and as a reaction to the hodgepodge of European ultralight regulations (where each country has its own standards), the then-FAA administrator, Marion Blakey, expected 9,000 US-registered light-sport aircraft by 2015.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Has-the-light-sport-aircraft-market-lived-up-to-expectations-410231/
