I am also building under E-LSA. As I understand it, your product must be exactly the same as the S-LSA (factory built) product. If it is not (and they notice), youíd have to go E-AB. Any deviation...

SLSA?

If you do stick with an E-LSA, it was built to spec. , with only Vans supplied parts, to be certified airworthy. That’s a great starting point. Whether or not they messed with it afterwards, is the...

3-pointers

So timely

This is so timely, as just days ago I had changed my choice from a 7 to the 14. My kicker was, after all the research and digging ( yes, another anal engineer...) the 14 makes more sense as an IFR...
