How exciting is the sport pilot category? On September 1, 2004, the new FAA Rules for Sport Pilots and Light-Sport Aircraft (SP/LSA) introduced a new era in recreational aviation. ZANETTE has been involved in one way or another with sport pilots and sport aircraft since the beginning of the sport designation. Sport pilots are able to obtain some of the best insurance rates because of the type of flying they do. Obtaining the sport pilot license can be easy, safe, and relatively inexpensive. Sport aircraft insurance rates reflect the ease and safety of the aircraft insured.
