Sad and my regrets to the family. I hate hearing of these types of things.
Reading the above report some statements are a little odd.
rudder cable Hose clamps?
No ATSM standard for airspeed markings, wrong markings,
Another pilot says Stalls uncommanded while climbing at 58 mph in smooth air?
I wonder what type of aircraft the pilot was training for at flight safety international?
No condition inspection signoff except a sticky note from the mechanic that the owner lost?
It will probably go down as pilot error like others but there sounds like more to it than that.
I wonder where the CG was. The other pilots giving the description of flying characteristics are flight instructors, not students.
When will we get some true independent testing of these LSA designs before they hit the market? Especially stall characteristics.
