Pipistrel Successfully Completes FAA LSA Audit
In February, the FAA audit delegation led by Mr Robert Franklin, joined by Mr Edsel Ford and Mr Nam Cho visited and verified compliance to FAA regulation and ASTM LSA standards at Pipistrel's factories in Italy and Slovenia. The audit consisted of compliance verification of Pipistrel's products, production organisation, continued airworthiness procedures, maintenance aspects, and documentation for LSA aircraft sold in the USA market.
Ivo Boscarol, Pipistrel owner and CEO says: "Meeting the highest safety standards and compliance with the rules and regulations is essential in the global market.

We appreciate and welcome FAA Team's professional attitude and their approach to elevate the level of safety and compliance throughout the LSA industry by conducting such high-quality and stringent audits".
