Gene - This has been a topic of confusion for me as well. For my own sanity let me clarify this: As a PP you can operate a 415-C or CD (that is Sport Pilot Eligible - ie has never been modified for 1400lb gross weight) by exercising Sport Pilot privileges with just a drivers license as a medical.

Well thanks for clearing that up. I suppose my PP certificate will be OK if I can pass a 3rd class medical. Thanks again

That is not a list of aircraft eligible for LSA status. That is a list of certified aircraft which meet the criteria allowing a sport pilot to fly it. LSAs are manufactured under ASTM rules, very different from FAA rules. Light sport pilot certificates and light sport aircraft are two different things.

I am not arguing with you, but if you bring up the FAA list of certificated aircraft eligible for LSA status, the Ercoupe C and CD is listed there along with almost all Piper high wings , etc. I took this to mean that the 415-C could be flown as a LSA.

Ercoupes are not light sport aircraft. They are standard category certificated aircraft. They just happen to meet all the requirements that allow them to be flown by light sport pilots.

Your airplane needs to be registered like any other certificated airplane, and maintained accordingly.
