The Federal Aviation Administration defines a light-sport aircraft as an aircraft with a maximum gross takeoff weight of not more than 1,320 pounds (600 kg) for aircraft not intended for operation on water; or 1,430 pounds (650 kg) for aircraft intended for operation on water; a maximum airspeed in level flight of 120 knots (220 km/h; 140 mph); a maximum stall speed of 45 knots (83 km/h; 52 mph); either one or two seats; fixed undercarriage and fixed-pitch or ground adjustable propeller; and a single electric motor or reciprocating engine, which includes diesel engines and Wankel engines.

Aircraft which qualify as LSA may be operated by holders of a Sport Pilot certificate, whether they are registered as Light Sport Aircraft or not. Pilots with a private, recreational, or higher pilot certificate may also fly LSA, even if their medical certificates have expired, so long as they have a valid driver's license to prove that they are in good enough health to fly. LSA also have less restrictive maintenance requirements and may be maintained and inspected by traditionally certificated Aircraft Maintenance Technicians, by individuals holding a Repairman: Light Sport certificate, and (in some cases) by their pilots and/or owners.  Light Sport Aircraft, or LSA, is a classification of aircraft specific to the United States.

Honda automotive aircraft engine conversion by Eggenfeller Aircraft.

Eggenfellner aircraft engines are developing a 110 hp automotive engine conversion, based on the 2009 Honda Fit / Jazz car engine.  The first public appearance was at the Sebring Expo in Lakeland Florida in January of 2010.  The prototype engine was mounted on a CH601 HDS airframe.  Their first firewall forward kits will go to a Zenith 601 and then a 750. Expected engine deliveries to customers are August 2010.
