How do you SLSA certify a brand new trike

By Rizwan Bukhari

Hi all,

 

If you buy a brand new trike, then what is the procedure to SLSA certify it? One of my buddies wanted to buy a brand new Aeros 912 trike and asked me if it could be SLSA certified.

Does anyone know what is the process of certification for any foreign made brand new trikes (Aeros, AirCreation, Airborne etc) that is ordered and shipped brand new from a foreign country.

 

Regards,

How to find Trike Pilots and Instructors near you and/or finding a place to get trained, transitioned or updated.

By Paul Hamilton

 

This has been an incredible start to the flying season. I have never gotten so many calls asking “where can I find a trike instructor near me?”

 

Good news and bad news. The good news is that most of the qualified trike instructors and many pilots are listed at:

 

http://lsapilot.sportaviationcenter.com/sport-pilot-locator/

 

This is the most comprehensive, up to date site to find pilots and instructors. This is where I send everybody. Pilots and instructors, please look at this and let me know if it is up to date for your area. I personally maintain this and try to be as accurate and comprehensive as I can.

 

The bad news is that there may not be a qualified trike instructor close to you. Many times it is better to travel and concentrate on flying with a full time established school and get it done. Your program is listed at http://sportpilottraining.sportaviationcenter.com/sport-pilot-applicant/sport-pilot-applicant-start/ We have two and sometimes THREE FULL TIME trike instructors ready to train you. I can give you your checkride. One stop shop.

 

Other trike instructors please feel free to list your web site here and MAKE SURE YOU ARE ON THE TRIKE LOCATOR http://lsapilot.sportaviationcenter.com/sport-pilot-locator/

 

Best,
