Tecnam or Sirius high wing

Talk about airplanes! At last count, there are 39 (and growing) FAA certificated S-LSA (special light sport aircraft). These are factory-built ready to fly airplanes. If you can't afford a factory-built LSA, consider buying an E-LSA kit (experimental LSA - up to 99% complete).

Quick and easy engine access makes it easy to identify a potential problem and encourages better preflight inspections.

One time in northern Minnesota I stopped for lunch and was only away from the airplane for an hour or so. When I came back there was a couple pieces of grass under the cowl so I opened it up and was surprised to see an almost fully finished bird nest!


That's one of the thingI liked about the Tecnams …easy cowling access. I also like the way they leave space on the inside of the wheel fairings to allow easier access to brake inspection and to inflate the tires if necessary.
