LSA Mall showcases diversity
By Dana Heimos
Are you interested in flying but concerned with the cost of conventional aircraft or a private pilot certificate?

The LSA Mall, located near the intersection of Waukau Avenue and James Ray Blvd., gives visitors to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh the opportunity to peruse a wide selection of light-sport aircraft (LSA), learn more about the sport pilot certificate, and discover affordable ways to take to the sky—all in one central location.

Featuring 17 different light-sport aircraft in 2010, the LSA Mall features aircraft ranging from Piper Aircraft’s new PiperSport introduced in January to a classic J-3 Cub on floats.

Other aircraft in the mall include a Tecnam P92 Echo Classic, Navigator 600, M-Squared Breese 2, Progressive Aerodyne SeaRey, Lightning LS-1, Flight Design CTLS, REMOS GX, and an FK-9.

Randee Laskewitz of the Light Aircraft Manufacturers Association (LAMA) said the traffic to the LSA Mall has improved over last year.

“People know where to find us now that we’ve been in the same location for two years,” she explained.

“We’ve seen a lot of interest in the light-sport category, and the exhibitors have been happy with the quality of people they’ve talked to this year.
“Our mission is to introduce the public to the light-sport category of airplanes,” said Laskewitz.

“We hope to accomplish that by offering informational materials on LSA and showcasing different LSA styles and models from a variety of manufacturers.”

Those materials, located in the main LSA Mall tent, cover topics such as sport pilot/light-sport aircraft (SP/LSA) regulations, the sport pilot certificate, and aircraft partnerships. There’s even a chance to win an Apple iPad loaded with four aviation-based apps.

Each exhibitor in the LSA Mall also has a main exhibit on-site. To find a specific exhibitor visit the EAA Welcome Center located near AeroShell Square or visit www.AirVenture.org/schedule.
