CA-FALCON Experimental Light Sport Aircraft (E-LSA) - USA
*** COMING SOON ***
Registering your CA-FALCON E-LSA with the FAA is your responsibility as the aircraft owner.
Upon notification that your airplane kit is ready to ship, You must file Form 8050-88A - Affidavit of Ownership and Form 8050-1 Aircraft Registration Application with the FAA. Upon payment in full for your airplane, we will send you these forms along with your bill of sale. These forms have to be filled-out based on specific instructions and the failure to do so will hold up the entire process. Information about how and where you file these forms is included below.
After you complete the construction of your airplane, you need to get an FAA or an authorized DAR inspector to certify your build and your registration will become effective.
No further governmental action will then be required in order to fly the airplane.

- Possible higher resale value because the new owner can do his own annual with the 16 hr LSA inspection course,
- 3rd class medical is not required,
- Kit with up to 99% completion is allowed,
- Certification process for an E-LSA, once completed is much quicker.
The CA-FALCON was designed to the FAA ASTM standards governing Light Sport Aircraft category and intended to be licensed in the Experimental Light Sport (E-LSA) category.
Although the E-LSA category does not permit builders to alter the design (no unapproved engines, propellers, avionics, etc. are allowed) it does have some attractive features. In the E-LSA category, there is no "51%" rule, and no restriction on who may assist in building the airplane. This allows any amount of assistance or even a fully professionally-built airplane.
