EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017: Exhibitors - Light Sport and Experimental Aircraft

By Fred Harl 
The Aero Experience coverage of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017 exhibitors continues with a look at light sport and experimental aircraft on display. Light Sport Aircraft from Aerotrek, Flying Legend, Pipistrel and Tecnam are featured here, along with experimental aircraft from Kitfox, Rans and Vans. These aircraft generally accommodate two people for local pleasure, and with some models, outback flying excursions. Each model has it's subtle advantages, and each can be fitted with the latest cockpit displays if desired. While nothing in aviation is cheap, these aircraft offer a more affordable entry into aircraft ownership, and with the experimental types, a chance to build them from an FAA approved kit.
