I would like to know if a CFI can instruct in an experimental LSA without a medical as with a certified LSA?

A CFI can instruct in an experimental when:

 

- he is instructing the Owner of the Experimental Aircaft, or

 

- He has a Letter of Deviation Authority (LODA) from the FAA.

 

Recent guidance from FAA says that an LODA for Flight training may include:

  1. Initial flight training for the operation of specific make and model of experimental aircraft.
  2. Recurrent flight training for the operation of a specific make and model of experimental aircraft.
  3. Primary flight training for the operation of ultralight vehicles only when conducted in low mass, high drag vehicles with an empty weight less than 500 pounds and a maximum speed in level flight with maximum continuous power (VH) less than 87 knots calibrated airspeed (CAS).
  4. Jet unusual attitude and upset training.
  5. Instrument competency training for specific make and model of experimental aircraft.
  6. Training for a flight review in a specific make and model of experimental aircraft.
  7. Formation training for specific make and model of experimental aircraft.
  8. Other specific training approved by the General Aviation and Commercial Division, AFS-800.

See http://www.eaa.org/news/2010/2010-09-16_lodas.asp

FAA does not CFI's to perform primary Training or suppliment rentals in experimental aircraft, either ELSA or EAB.

I have the new loda info but what I need is a sample loda.

Does anyone have a sample that I can look at so I know what all they want?

Thanks
