Just finished listening to #380C. Nice to hear you guys from SunNFun and wish I was there. Think Dave provided a bit of mis-information with regard to the differences between building E-LSA or E-AB when one has the option. Yes, after initial certification as an E-LSA, the owner can modify the E-LSA as long as the aiplane continues to meet the E-LSA parameters (stall speed, max speed, etc.) If one builds E-LSA and the airplane is so equipped (which can be done after the initial certification), there is no limitation for night flight or instrument flight, provided the pilot has the class 3 medical and private certificate allowing night flight and the instrument rating for instrument flight. The operating limitations typically contain the caveat, "if so equipped".

In my mind the biggest advantage to licensing E-LSA is the owner (no matter if the initial owner or next owner, in the case if the initial owner sells), can obtain the repairman certificate and not only perform all maintenance but sign off each yearly conditional inspection. This is not true if initally licensed as E-AB. Only the initial owner/builder can obtain the repairman certificate.

Hi, Marty,

The differences between E-LSA and E-AB (when you have a choice) are indeed complex. I thought that this web site:

written by G. Michael Huffman, lays it all out in understandable language. Recommended.
