EQUATOR LIGHT SPORT AIRCRAFT by Oyvind Roar Berven and Tomas Brodreskift

Designers of this project tell of this new class of airplane that’s taking the private world of aviation by storm, that being the LSA “Light Sport Aircraft.” This class is between existing microlight and private pilot classes, and aims to make it easier and cheaper to get your smooth flying butt in the air! The LSA class is small, and this “EQP2 Excusion” is one of less than 10 models anywhere near reality today. We are sure it’s exciting for those who already rock the skies. As it stands now, the designers of this project have built a full scale mockup of the interior as well as a 1:4 scale model of the plane for exhibitions and testing. Their goal is to have a prototype flying in 2013.
