  • New aircraft category such as Light Sport Aircraft is introduced to prevent Ultralight Vehicle accidents and to promote aviation sports. Therefore, a new rule for airworthiness standard, certification, operation and maintenance of light sport aircraft is being created. The present study deals with LSA concept, development trend of LSA, airworthiness standards and certification policy. In particular, an aircraft type analysis of FAA certified LSA is conducted to establish performance requirements of Light Sport Aircraft designs.

  • The main purpose of this study is to obtain linear models for the design of automatic flight controller in order to operate the Light Sport Aircraft as unmanned air vehicle. Flight test equipments installed on the aircraft to acquire flight test data are described and maneuvers for practical speed calibration are introduced. Parameters for the linear models of lateral and longitudinal motion are estimated by the Output error method as well as trim data analysis using the flight test data. Simulated data using the estimated parameters is shown to agree well with the measurement data. Estimated parameters obtained for several flight conditions can be used to improve the aerodynamic database of the simulation program.

  • In september 2004, a new pilot certificate scheme referred to as Sport Pilot Certificate was declared official and standardized in the US. The designation of Light-sport aircraft and the details of the relevant pilot certificate policy was announced out of the perception that a new regulation is required to be applied whereby the limitations on the manufacturing process enhancements and current aviation rules are considered the triggering factors. US Federal Aviation Regulation retains a comprehensive range of airworthiness certificates and aircrafts are managed systematically in accordance with FAR 21, 103. The airworthiness are further segregated into sub categories, which allows differentiated management. Korean Aviation Law classify aircraft into five different categories and powered air vehicle that weighs more than 150kg(19liters fuel capacity) for one seat, 225kg for two seats(38liters fuel capacity) while the systems that fall under a specific mass threshold level are known as ultralight vehicle. The research discusses the policy of the sport pilot certificate and the light-sport aircraft ratings announced official by the Federal Aviation Administration in an intuitive fashion with the analysis of the operations providing the evidence as to the viability of adopting the policy in local grounds. Based on the findings, the report discusses the case for introducing the light-sport aircraft and make recommendation on a strategy of applying the policy in Korea with respect to the pilot certificates, safety agenda, and the written test for the pilot certificate, and operating efficiency.

  • The base of leisure air activities are consistently expanding and its demand is expected to increase attributed to GDP growth and people's interest in its activity. Utilizing Visual Flight Rule, light sport aircrafts and ultra-light aircrafts are not under the effect of air traffic control center, which resulted in passenger injury due to emergency landing for adverse weather conditions and technical issues after pulling into mountain area, ocean and even urban area. Such events encouraged safety consciousness toward leisure aircraft activities and developing a measure to prevent a recurrence of the accident. This research focuses on suggesting compositive system for preventive safety management system by providing user based Flight information service and operating effective system, necessary for leisure aircraft activities.

  • In this study, we surveyed the regulations of the Seaplane base and Sea Lane for the Light Sport Aircraft(LSA), and analyzed the water landing/takeoff roll distance of LSA in Korea. Based on the information, we presented the situation of the Sea Lane and the Sea Lane Protection Zone concept, to ensure the Rectangle type Sea Lane and the Omni direction type Sea Lane. We analyzed the availability elements of the safety of Sea Lane for LSA in Korea. A Rectangle type Sea Lane 350 meters long and 40 meters wide, the diameter 350 meters for the An Omni direction type Sea Lane.
