LSAs reach #100

The Light Sport Aircraft industry has reached a milestone, reaching Special-LSA #100 in less than five years.

According to LSA expert (and GAN columnist) Dan Johnson, the 100th LSA is Van’s RV-12. It received its approval July 21, one day after the fifth anniversary of the new rule announcement (July 20, 2004).

Johnson, who is also president of the Light Aircraft Manufacturers Association (LAMA), notes that, “100 models approved in such a short time has no comparison in worldwide aviation history.”
