2014 Bristell crash, Lakeland Linder Rgnl (KLAL)

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).

Yeah, this, big time. The vernier throttle in my Sportstar is remarkably responsive with the button pushed in and advanced fully! Basic airmanship is always fundamental. Coordinate the airplane in all attitudes at all times. Sad day for the family of the deceased. May he rest in peace.
