LASTA aircraft is intended for initial and basic training of pilots, and for smooth transition to higher-level pilot training.
It is designed with low landing and takeoff speeds, and is developed on the concept of error-forgiving design to make it friendly for inexperienced pilots.
The aircraft was designed in compliance with the Federal Aviation Regulations (F.A.R. – Part 23: Airworthiness Standards), namely:
• Basic version of the aircraft is built against the requirements for the acrobatic category, for loads of (nz_max = 6.0, nz_min = -3).
• Armed version of the aircraft is built against the requirements for the utility category, for loads of (nz_ max = 4.4, nz_ min = -1.8).
The aircraft specification and upgraded avionics enable full pilot training for all applications, including:
• basic flying,
• formation flying,
• air navigation,
• basic elements of night flying,
• basic elements of instrument flying • basic elements of gunning, rocketing and bombing (GRB).
