Over the last four-plus years, I’ve had the good fortune to fly around 30 S-LSA models. There’s nothing quite like the LSA category. Today, 125 models have received FAA’s blessing—enough choices to confound even the most crazed shopping addict. This is one all-purpose, many-colored group of recreational flying machines.
LSA flight is high, wide and free. I’ve vaulted skyward in one-after-another lazy wingovers high above a long-shadowed grove of trees at sunset in a lively low-wing Sting S3; eased through a downwind/base/final arc, fourth in line in a gaggle of eight immaculate Legend Cubs, to chop power and settle on with a happy hiss of wheels on grass; watched the world revolve around my cockpit in a biplane LSA aerobat.
