Word of a few interesting developments arrived in my inbox, bringing with them new questions. *** Point One — EAA announced it will cease publishing Sport Pilot and Light-Sport Aircraft magazine. LSA content will be merged into their flagship Sport Aviation title, bolstered by a new eNewsletter called “Light Plane World” that will focus on LSA and ultralights. *** Point Two — An Australian company, Foxcon, alerted me about their SLSA, the Terrier 200. It’s not presently for sale in the U.S. But they say it has government approval just like the other 104 aircraft on our SLSA List. To assure our list remains up-to-date, a key feature of the SLSA List, do we add the Terrier 200? Is ByDanJohnson.com is an American product for Americans or a world citizen? *** Point Three — China is hosting an international GA conference and is featuring Cirrus, Diamond, and Cessna, and, not least, Flight Design in promoting CIGAC. As this country (and India) allows genuine personal aviation, will it signal a vast new aviation market? So again, do I add the eventual Godong HiFlyer 600 to our SLSA List? National lines are deliciously blurred as LSA makes its way across the global landscape. My colleague, Jan Fridrich, has coined the phrase, “LSA Global.” I think he is onto something even as I ponder how ByDanJohnson.com should present the LSA field. These are fascinating questions amid changing times. I find it exciting to be near the front lines of these developments. I hope you enjoy following it here.
