Looking for Light Sport Aircraft

Am interested in getting sport pilot certification and was wondering if any Light Sport Aircraft are available for FS2004 or, preferably, FSX.

Thank you.

I don't know what you consider a "light sport aircraft".

I don't know of any for FSX or FS9, but I do know that the J3 Cub in FSX and FS9 are in the Light Sport Category.

The FAA established this new certificate for people to get instead of going for their Private Pilot's Lissence. It takes less time and money to get, and you don't need a medical certificate to use it. Here is how the FAA defines it:
"simple, low-performance aircraft that are limited to 1,320 pounds maximum takeoff weight (1,430 pounds for seaplanes), two occupants, a single non-turbine powered engine, stall speed of 45 knots (52 mph), maximum airspeed of 120 knots (138 mph), fixed pitch propeller and fixed landing gear ('repostionable gear' for amphibious aircraft is allowed)."

I didn't know that, thanks!

liclassics did an updated basically aeronca champ late 2005 which is light sport eligible. freeware. nicely done. does ground loops. has alot of detail. two models available. The later 7bcm has slightly more power, still light sport.
File is LICCHA04.ZIP available at different sites including flightsim.
If you get them, watch about loading of pilot/copilot. makes a difference for flying.

The later American Champion Decathalon, Scout etc. (see RealAir offerings) are based on aeronca champ. They fly nicely in fs2004 but are not light sport eligible. Heavier, more powerful.

There are some other fs2004 models of newer lsa but the aeronca is tried and true, alot written and on web about it. and a really nice free model.

Come guys, get out the scissors and cut some slack. The Cessna 152 Aerobat is the ideal airplane (real or simulated) to begin aerobatics/sport with. Try spins for a challenge. When you can pull out on a preselected heading with ease, you may be ready for a barrel roll, slow roll and inverted fly.
However, if you are refering to light sport in reference to the new sport pilots rating, most of the two place airplanes qualify
