SLSA Gyroplanes: A Disparity

SLSA: the future for light-sport gyroplanes

The year 2014 marks the ten-year anniversary of the LSA/SP regulations. The regulatory disparity that discriminates against light-sport gyroplanes was put in place at the beginning of those regulations and, ten years later, is still stalling the full benefits of these aircraft to US Sport Pilots.

In addition to its detrimental impact on safety, training and growth, the disparity in the FAA regulations that prevents factory-built SLSA gyroplanes also stymies the economic contribution of these aircraft.

Itís past time that the FAA enable these benefits and allow for gyroplane pilots the same opportunity it allows for pilots of all other categories and classes of light-sport aircraft: to fly gyroplanes that are factory-built to industry consensus standards. The FAA can extend that freedom to gyroplane pilots by removing the current regulatory disparity that prevents SLSA gyroplanes.
