Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) are targeted to recreational pilots who primarily fly for fun. LSA are designed to be affordable, lightweight, and easy to operate. All ICON Aircraft are classified as S-LSA (Special-Light Sport Aircraft). They are factory built and ready-to-fly aircraft.

The Sport Pilot License (SPL) is a new type of pilot certificate designed to get you safely and easily trained for recreational flying in Light Sport Aircraft. By restricting recreational flying for sport pilots to daytime, good weather, and in uncongested airspace, much of the complexities of learning to fly have been removed.
– Type of airplane: Any that meets LSA classification
