Owning a personal plane was once something that only millionares and corporations could do. Some pilots choose to buy used aircraft to have their own ticket to the sky.
Plane and Pilot Magazine's website feature a story on private aircraft under $100,000. These planes are called light-sport aircraft, or LSAs.
Changes in aircraft regulation have allowed smaller planes to go into production and reach a wider market. For some pilots, an LSA could be the perfect way to own a new plane.
Certain restrictions apply to LSAs. They are prohibited from flying at night or out of the United States. Other rules apply as well, so if you think an LSA is for you, read the article carefully for the details.
