WHAT IS SAMBA?
SAMBA is a European top seller that is being imported to the American market. With removable wing tips, it can be hangared in any T-hangar. With the wingtips attached, it can be flown as a cross-country LSA or as a medium performance glider. Samba can be licensed in several ways - either as an E-SLA or S-LSA light sport, or as an S-LSA glider.
Even though SAMBA is motorized, it can be certified by the FAA as an S-LSA Glider. It can be flown under LSA restrictions by pilots with either a private pilot rating or a light sport rating. Pilots with a glider rating and a self-launch endorsement can fly Samba without restrictions.
The major benefit of being glider rated is that there is no requirement for a medical certificate. For a licensed power pilot, a glider rating is an add-on to the existing rating. Some glider training is required, but the requirements can be met in your SAMBA.
