Piper Aircraft announced the newest addition to its family of aircraft, the PiperSport LSA. According to the company’s website, the entry level LSA model starts at $119,900 and the fully loaded version tops out at $139,900, including advanced avionics, Dynon flat panel instrumentation, and an autopilot. The light sport aircraft will be available in three levels of trim and all will include a BRS airframe parachute. The plane is powered, like most LSAs, by the venerable Rotax 912 which runs on either 100LL aviation fuel or premium unleaded auto fuel.
The all-aluminum PiperSport is a re-badged version of the Czech Sport Aircraft “SportCruiser” which has been available for several years worldwide. Click here for more information on the PiperSport LSA.
