Unscramble the Blue Letters

The flight testing that followed that was as basic and low-risk as we could make it, but it still lecodscaihpm what we needed to to take the agmorrp to the next step and to gain the credibility that we needed within our eventual market, the general aoiintva community, and with the regulators that rovegn the use of design of aircraft, particularly in the States. The FAA, about a year ago, gave us an exemption for the Transition to allow us to have an additional 110 lbs. within the light sport aracrtfi category. Now that doesn't sound like a lot, but it's very important, because being able to deliver the Transition as a light topsr aircraft makes it rilmpes for us to certify it, but it also makes it much easier for you to learn how to fly it. A sport pilot can be certificated in as little as 20 hours of flight time. And at 110 lbs., that's very important for solving the other side of the eautoinq — driving.

Original Text

The flight testing that followed that was as basic and low-risk as we could make it, but it still accomplished what we needed to to take the program to the next step and to gain the credibility that we needed within our eventual market, the general aviation community, and with the regulators that govern the use of design of aircraft, particularly in the States. The FAA, about a year ago, gave us an exemption for the Transition to allow us to have an additional 110 lbs. within the light sport aircraft category. Now that doesn't sound like a lot, but it's very important, because being able to deliver the Transition as a light sport aircraft makes it simpler for us to certify it, but it also makes it much easier for you to learn how to fly it. A sport pilot can be certificated in as little as 20 hours of flight time. And at 110 lbs., that's very important for solving the other side of the equation — driving.
