December 2005 Issue
2006 Kit Aircraft Directory
We list 343 fixed-wing aircraft built from kits and give special designation to the Light Sport legal designs.
Once again, the annual aircraft buyer's guide season is upon us, and this year's edition comes with a few changes. As always, this issue contains all designs that can be built from kits, and the January issue will feature plansbuilt designs. The real shift comes in February's content. With the Light-Sport Aircraft (LSA) category firmly in place more than a year after its introduction, we decided to compile a directory of the designs that have earned their initial Special LSA certificate, the document that allows a company to begin selling ready-to-fly SLSAs and advanced kit Experimental LSAs. That directory will replace our compilation of trikes and powered parachutes. Rotorcraft designs (helicopters and gyroplanes) will be listed in the February issue as well.
