CT4ME Posted September 13, 2012 Report Share Posted September 13, 2012 AVWeb Article on LSA Crashworthiness AVWeb, and Paul Bertorelli, usually gets it right. But I think they've missed it this time. In the above article, Paul tries to make the point that Light Sport Aircraft are basically un-crashworthy, with the argument that no 1320 lb MTOW aircraft could be built well enough to be "crashworthy". He opines that they don't have enough space to "flail about", and that the materials are not strong enough. In his words: "LSAs and real crashworthiness are mutually exclusive". I, for one, am proud of the apparent crashworthiness of the CT line of aircraft. I'm constantly amazed at how well the CT holds up in crash situations.
