AOPA Staff Answer
In the simplest terms, a light sport aircraft is a two-seat, single-engine aircraft that weighs no more than 1320 pounds for land planes (1,430 for seaplanes). But there’s more to it; for more details you should review AOPA’s FAQs on Sport Pilot. ( https://www.aopa.org/advocacy/advocacy-briefs/frequently-asked-questions-about-sport-pilot#aircraft )
