SportCruiser Rental

SportCruiser Rental

US Sport Aircraft maintains a fleet of SportCruisers available for rent. The SportCruiser is a fun and easy aircraft to fly, offering glass cockpit technology at a cost far less than traditional aircraft.

The SportCruiser has been the top-selling all-metal aircraft in its class since 2006. It has a stylish, well-appointed cabin that dwarfs most 2 and 4 seat aircraft. With a cabin width over 46 inches, the SportCruiser is wider than a Beechcraft Bonanza or a Cessna 210. It also has generous storage space in the aft cabin and spacious wing lockers in both wings. This modern, state-of-the-art aircraft provides the latest safety and convenience technologies such as whole-airframe ballistic parachute recovery system, synthetic vision, touch-screen avionics, 2-axis autopilot with VNAV and approach coupling capability, ADS/B, in-cockpit traffic and weather, XM satellite radio, and much more. In addition, its excellent flight characteristics, superior performance, and panoramic canopy make it a true joy to fly. All of this and direct operating costs of less than $25 per hour!

While many aircraft in the Light Sport Aircraft category are merely large ultralights or former kit planes, the SportCruiser was designed as a true production aircraft from the beginning. Although it fits in the LSA category, there is nothing amateur or kit-built about the SportCruiser.
