After concluding three strong events on the EAA Sport Pilot Tour, a dozen LSA traveled from Franklin, PA (north of Pittsburgh) to the Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association headquarters in Frederick, MD. AOPA senior management took a chance to examine and fly in several of these aircraft, then adding coverage to their website. The meeting had been arranged in cooperation with LAMA, the Light Aircraft Manufacturers Association. AOPA staff flew in the morning and evening and met in the afternoon with industry leaders to further AOPA’s understanding of LSA. A recent survey showed 30% of the organization’s 405,000 members see LSA as helping aviation to grow.
