"Real World" Performance

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).

I guess it doesn't.

We're pretty deep into the details here.

For now, go with your interpretation.

Good luck!

The requirements for private pilot training and the sport pilot endorsement call 3 take offs and landings at an airport with an operating control tower. The airport can be in any airspace.

If I was still instructing, since I am in the north Georgia area, I would do the Class D at a Class D airport and give you the Class D endorsement. We would do the Class B and Class C in actual Class B and Class C airspace and they would be separate endorsements. If we were out in the boonies and there was no Class B or Class C within a reasonable distance, I would probably simulate it. I would only give you the endorsement if I was confident you were totally proficient to operate in Class B and/or Class C.


You do know that when this topic come up before after some discussion you changed your position from what you just stated.

I thought Class D replaced the old Airport Traffic Area.
