LSAs are a new category of small, lightweight aircraft that may include advanced systems, such as parachutes, EFIS, and composite construction. While the transition is not difficult, LSA does require a properly designed transition training program led by a competent CFI-S or CFI-A. Safety is of utmost importance when it comes to any flight activity. In order to properly assess the hazards of flight and mitigate flight risk, a pilot must develop the skill, judgment, and experience in order to effectively and safely pilot a LSA.
