Sport Pilot Training and the PiperSport LSA in Arizona: Light Sport Aircraft Specs

With a cruise speed 120 KTAS, a fuel burn rate of 4.5 gallons/hour and a cruise range of 600 nautical miles, no wonder the PiperSport LSA is a busy bird at Guidance Aviation of Prescott, Arizona.  Add in a Garmin 696 moving map display, leather seats, MP3 / iPOD music input and best yet, a ballistic recovery system (BRS) safety parachute and you’ve got yourself one safefun machine“.

But, don’t take our word for it, just ask someone who just flew it: “I am 6′ and my instructor is 6’3” and we fit nicely in the cockpit.  The flight characteristics are light and responsive but forgiving. The twin dynon screens give the crew a wealth of information and are actually very simple to operate. The convenience of these screens cannot be matched, you look down and you have all flight information displayed on a easy to read screen. The canopy gives simply great views, you almost feel as you are outside the plane.”~Matt Bricker

With a sleek and nimble design, the PiperSportDynon flat panel Electronic Flight Information Systems (EFIS) provide two seven inch screens, coupled with the Garmin 696 Moving Map, give the pilot the necessary information to make quick and sound decisions. Even the autopilot gives this aircraft the edge of performance not found in most primary flight training aircraft. The Pipersport includes, what might be considered its safest design, the Ballistic Recovery System (BRS) parachute. BRS is credited for saving over 256 lives!
