What Are Recreational Aircraft?

Recreational Aircraft, commonly called Light Sport Aircraft, are two seat aircraft that can have a maximum take off weight of no more than 600kg and can only be flown during daylight hours.

These airplanes are modern fuel efficient aircraft that can cruise at 110 knots (200 km/hr) for about three and half to four hours. That means you can fly up to 400 nautical miles (approx 740 kilometers). You can fly a long way in a short time!

One of the main advantages to flying Recreational Aircraft, is that they are light two seat aircraft, that are very economical. This makes learning to fly affordable!
