Light Sport Aircraft
St. Charles Flying Service is the St. Louis area’s first Light Sport training facility. Approved in 2005, the Light Sport Certificate is aimed at those pilots that want to fly only for recreation. The Sport certificate is more affordable and less time consuming than other ratings and reduces the hassles that have hampered many people who want to learn to fly.
The SportStar is a nimble two-place low-wing Light Sport Aircraft. The spacious cockpit is equipped with basic radio and GPS, and the large bubble canopy provides excellent visibility. Great for the pilot looking to fly just for fun, and perfect for the student eager to train for their Sport Pilot certificate! Cruises at 106 kts.
