CS prop marked inop?

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).

There are probably one or two manufacturers which will do that (but not many) especially if they have had a constant relationship with the owner.

Hi Richard,

Even with a good relationship I highly doubt ANY manufacturer would allow this. They simply have too much to lose. No one should go into the E-LSA conversion process thinking "I'll switch it back when I'm ready to sell". It just isn't gonna happen. :mrgreen:

Beside, who'd wanna go back, the freedom of E-LSA is unmatched.

I do know of a SLSA that was moved to experimental R&D, then returned to SLSA.

Wow what company was that? Did the company has an interest in the R&D?
