It seems the Czech Republic is one of the world’s centers for LSA manufacturing these days. A multitude of light-sport aircraft are being built in the former Czechoslovakia and sold all over the world.
In fact, the United States came late to the party, specifically 2005. LSAs and ultralights have been all the rage in Europe for some time. The cost of flying has only recently increased dramatically here in the States, but fuel, airways and communication charges, landing fees and a multitude of other taxes have been a way of life in Europe for decades.
