USA: le LSA, un premier bilan sur son accidentologie


So, what’s the final call?

Pilot error rates are about the same as those of the Cessna 152s and 172s. The higher rate of mechanical-failure-related accidents are somewhat offset by the use of more reliable engines.

Personally, I’d call it even. While there are obviously things to watch for, I don’t believe the Special Light Sport airplanes have an accident rate significantly different from the traditional fleet.
