The new Sport Pilot Rule Changes

On September 1, 2004 the FAA inaugurated a new pilot certificate dubbed the "sport pilot" that makes learning to fly easier and more affordable that ever. Intended primarily for recreational use, you can now become a pilot with as little as 20 hours of flight instruction! In addition, the FAA also created a new category of affordable "light-sport aircraft"!

BREAKING NEWS:
Effective today, the FAA has relaxed the LSA rules to allow Sport Pilots to fly aircraft weighing up to 6,000 pounds, carrying no more than 6 occupants.
Happy April First!

Yes, but the cup holder rule will still be a roadblock for a lot of folks.
