The unimpressive sales outlook for light sport aviation was reflected in the atmosphere at the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo, blogger Paul Bertorelli writes. One theory as to why LSA is struggling has to do with the market being over-saturated with manufacturers. According to Bertorelli, "there are something like 90 manufacturers with more than 100 models in a current world market that absorbed about 260 airplanes last year. If you're a rabid believer in free markets and unlimited competition and you think that there can never be too much, perhaps the static universe of LSA might suggest a rethinking of that theory."
