The Ercoupe (pronounced Aircoupe) was new when I was a baby, but is an example of older generation aircraft that will meet the light sport category specifications.  The ingenious design of the Ercoupe eliminated the need for rudder pedals and flaps although the original certification allowed rudder pedals to be installed if desired.  Most were built without but ours has them for obvious training reasons.  This is the only tri-cycle gear vintage aircraft that meets the LSA standard of 1320 lbs gross wt or less.  The Ercoupe is a good LSA value even if they are over 50 years old.   On the down side, most 415-C/CD models have a small useful load and not all Americans can fly dual (legally ) in the airplane.

Aeronca Chief is an airplane with side-by-side seating which is excellent for flight  instruction and normally uses the Continental 65hp engine although they can be found with 75, 85, 90 and 100hp Continentals.  The 65’s usually do not have any electrical accessories and require hand-propping.

Champs and military versions the L-16, are tandem seating like the Piper Cub and may fly a few mph faster than the Chief.  Aeronca’s of this era are super simple aircraft and are very fun to fly.  Champs are usually found powered by the same array of Continentals found on the Chief with the later models being fully electric.

No aircraft is more nostalgic than the “Piper Cub”.  The J-3 version is the most recognized airplane in the world.  Tandem seating, no electric and airy the Cub mantra is “low and slow” but nothing beats the experience.  The popularity of the Cub in recent years has pushed the price up for a nicely restored one.

The all-metal Parrot is the first LSA to offer a full-cantilever metal wing, a ‘glass’ shape in metal, a forward-hinged canopy, and plenty of payload. Flight tests on the new machine have exceeded expectations. The handling and control balance are great. The visibility is fantastic. The Parrot is smooth, quiet, and extremely comfortable.
