2 2 Federal Aviation Administration FAASTeam CFI Workshop #3 Core Topic #6: Sport Pilot OBJECTIVE This presentation will familiarize Flight Instructors with Light Sport Aircraft and Light Sport Pilots. Upon completion, participants will have knowledge of this subject and directions to rules and other sources of important information. Light Sport Aviation is growing and it is essential that the nations certified flight instructors and other aviation professionals become involved. Downloaded from

3 3 Federal Aviation Administration FAASTeam CFI Workshop #3 Core Topic #6: Sport Pilot SPORT PILOT OVERVIEW In September 2004, the FAA enacted the final rule establishing the Light Sport Category of aircraft and the Sport Pilot Certificate. This rule inaugurated a new realm of aviation to bring flying to a wider group of participants and establish safety standards at an acceptable level.

28 28 Federal Aviation Administration FAASTeam CFI Workshop #3 Core Topic #6: Sport Pilot Downloaded from WHAT FLIGHT INSTRUCTORS SHOULD KNOW V H = Maximum speed in level flight at maximum continuous power. This V speed is important for Sport Pilot endorsement §61.327: Aircraft V H less than 87kts CAS Aircraft V H greater than 87kts CAS Remember: initial sport pilot certificate requires fewer hours! When a sport pilot requests more privileges or flying other LSA makes/models, more training & individual endorsements are required A CFI may not conduct instruction in an experimental aircraft that he or she provides unless a letter of deviation authorization (LODA) is received from a FSDO. V H AND SPORT PILOT ENDORSEMENTS

29 29 Federal Aviation Administration FAASTeam CFI Workshop #3 Core Topic #6: Sport Pilot Downloaded from WHAT FLIGHT INSTRUCTORS SHOULD KNOW Meet minimum eligibility requirements (61.305) Receive appropriate training for ground and flight (61.309, ) Take the knowledge test (61.307) Complete the required hours for flight and instruction (61.313) Have proper endorsements and submit application Take the practical test based upon the Sport Pilot PTS (FAA-s ) SPORT PILOT TRAINING SIMILAR TO PRIVATE

30 30 Federal Aviation Administration FAASTeam CFI Workshop #3 Core Topic #6: Sport Pilot Downloaded from WHAT FLIGHT INSTRUCTORS SHOULD KNOW AC / still apply Stick and rudder skills or tailwheel endorsement Crosswind practice and steeper approach profiles Stall characteristics and aerodynamics Use the flight review to assist in adding a new privilege The ASF-610 website offers guidance for proficiency checks: A FLIGHT REVIEW IS STILL A FLIGHT REVIEW

31 31 Federal Aviation Administration FAASTeam CFI Workshop #3 Core Topic #6: Sport Pilot These aircraft may require a significant amount of hours retraining, especially if a pilot hasnt flown in many years or is unfamiliar with aircraft characteristics. Descent profiles, stall and spin awareness & recovery, crosswind landings, slower speeds (V H ), and weight / balance should be familiar to the instructor before launching out with a student. LSA FLIGHT CHARACTERISTICS MAY DIFFER

32 32 Federal Aviation Administration FAASTeam CFI Workshop #3 Core Topic #6: Sport Pilot NTSB provides statistics for Amateur Built but not Light Sport It is probable that some Light Sport accidents are included in this data 2010 US General Aviation accidents: 1093 total 193 fatal (17%) 2010 US Amateur Built accidents: 208 total 55 fatal (26%) ACCIDENT DATA FOR LIGHT SPORT

33 33 Federal Aviation Administration FAASTeam CFI Workshop #3 Core Topic #6: Sport Pilot FAR PART 61 Sport Pilot Certificate – Part 61 Subpart J Sport Pilot Flight Instructor Certificate – Part 61 Subpart K FAA WEBSITES (FAA.GOV, ASF-610, and FAA Safety.GOV) FAA Safety.gov/Resources/Online Resources/Type of Operations…162 links to Sport Pilot! AOPA NAFI and EAA EAA Many other great resources exist, but the LSA and Sport Pilot community needs more CFIs and DPEs to support the growing industry…get involved and instruct in Sport!
