New Specification for Aeroelasticity Requirements for a Light Sport Airplane

1. Scope

This specification addresses the aeroelasticity requirements of the airplane and is applicable to the design of a light sport aircraft/airplane as defined by regulations.


Aeroelasticity; LSA; Light Sport Aircraft; Fixed Wing


This ballot is for the purpose adding additional means of compliance to the current standards as well as a new standard for flutter for any aircraft with a VH greater than 120 KCAS. Current LSA aircraft would not need to comply with any additional standards as the means of compliance for these aircraft will remain unchanged. For rationale specific to each change see the proposed flutter standard.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
