Light-Sport Air Craft: Happening Now

Updated on May 14, 2014

Happening Now - as I was reading this, I heard a noise outside, and grabbed my camera!

Light-sport air craft is what it is called, flying over my cabin here in the Southern Missouri Ozarks - right as I was reading the What's Happening Now Squid Quest on Squidoo! How could I help but get the photo and begin to investigate light-sport air craft. Join me in this short adventure checking to see What's Happening Now! Here.

A pilots license is required to fly light-sport air craft - click on the license image to see more details, and go to the 'sport pilot certificate' for even more details. There are a variety of 'lighter-than-air' aircraft and each may have its own requirements. Do you have a pilot's license?

Would you like to fly in a light-sport aircraft?

I am fascinated by the folks that fly these craft, but I would never go up in one myself - since I'm not qualified, I suppose that makes it simple. Would you like to fly?

Is an ultralight trike for you?

This is another variation for your interest. Control of flight is done by weight shift. Click the image to see more details.

      This looks interesting but it is not for me. Thanks for having the information available.

      Looks like lots of fun, although I'm probably too scared to try it.

      That looks like a total blast.

      I think any type of flying, whether a light sport aircraft, or a plane or whatever must be amazing, since I have only flown on commercial airlines.
