Can I fly the RUCKUS as a Light Sport Pilot?
The RUCKUS is an experimental-amatuer built aircraft. The RUCKUS can be flown by a sport pilot so long as the build “meets the performance definition of a light-sport aircraft as defined in 14 CFR 1.1”.
Excerpts from link above (copied 12/3/2020):
“What is a light-sport aircraft?
A light-sport aircraft is defined as:
1,320 pounds maximum takeoff weight for aircraft not intended for operation on water; or
1,430 pounds maximum takeoff weight for aircraft intended for operation on water.
A maximum airspeed in level flight with maximum continuous power (V H) of not more than 120 knots CAS under standard atmospheric conditions at sea level.
A maximum seating capacity of no more than two persons, including the pilot.
A single, reciprocating engine.
A fixed or ground-adjustable propeller if a powered aircraft other than a powered glider.
A nonpressurized cabin, if equipped with a cabin.
Maximum airspeed of 120 knots.
Fixed landing gear, except for an aircraft intended for operation on water or a glider.
Fixed or repositionable landing gear, or a hull, for an aircraft intended for operation on water.
A maximum stalling speed or minimum steady flight speed without the use of lift-enhancing devices (V S1) of not more than 45 knots CAS at the aircraft's maximum certificated takeoff weight and most critical center of gravity.”
Can I fly an experimental amateur-built (homebuilt) aircraft as a sport pilot?
Yes, as long as the aircraft meets the performance definition of a light-sport aircraft as defined in 14 CFR 1.1.
I have built or plan on building an experimental amateur-built aircraft that meets the definition of light-sport aircraft (LSA). How does the sport pilot rule affect me?
The aircraft remains an experimental amateur-built aircraft. You cannot change the aircraft airworthiness certificate to S-LSA or E-LSA.
You can modify your aircraft (if you're the manufacturer) to meet the definition of LSA.
You may operate as pilot in command of the aircraft as a light-sport aircraft if you hold a sport pilot certificate or are exercising sport pilot privileges.
I built the aircraft that I'm currently flying. Can I certificate it as experimental amateur-built or does it have to be an experimental light-sport aircraft (E-LSA)?
If you built 51 percent of your aircraft, the aircraft meets the requirements to apply for certification as an experimental amateur-built aircraft. Keep in mind, however, that once the aircraft is certificated as an experimental amateur built it cannot be certificated later as an experimental (E-LSA) or special light-sport aircraft (S-LSA). The aircraft remains an experimental amateur-built aircraft. Additionally, in order for an aircraft to be registered as a light-sport aircraft, it must meet the LSA criteria (i.e., two seats, one engine, 1,320 pounds maximum gross weight, etc.). An experimental amateur-built is not subject to these limitations.”
