I have recently come across a set of Xeroxed plans for a plane called a GY20 "Minicab" or "Babyclub". It looks like a sweet little craft but all the notes and specs are given in French only.
Anybody know where a translation or a set of English plans can be obtained? Also, does this design qualify for the E-LSA classification?
On a related subject, is there a list of approved plans for E-LSA aircraft? I've seen one alluded to but haven't been able to find it.

You might take a look at this link over at the LAA, the UK equivalent of the EAA.
The sheet says the current plans cost is 150 GBP.
I believe at one time that Falconar in Canada sold plans too. Their website no longer shows a Minicab.
It looks like a very nice aircraft! I always liked the SIPA which Yves Gardan also designed.

There are only 2 ways to certify an aircraft as an E-LSA. 1-It must be built from a kit produced as an E-LSA, and the manufacturer of the kit must have first certified the aircraft as an S-LSA. 2- An S-LSA may bere-certified as an E-LSA.
Any plane you build that falls under the amateur built rulesand meets the FAR 1 definition of LSA may be operated by a sport pilot. It doesnot have to be certified as an E-LSA.
