The SportStar and Harmony LSA are two-seat light sport aircraft, powered by 100 hp Rotax 912S or Rotax 912iSc engine, equipped with the latest Garmin G3X avionics with two 10.6″ Touch Screens, Night flight equipment, autopilot, and an integrated airframe parachute rescue system. The aircraft have the highest useful load in the LSA category and with fuel-injected Rotax 912iSc installation provides a range of up to 1550 km, 9 hrs endurance, and 20 % fuel consumption saving and reduction of CO2 emissions. Together with easy maintenance, the SportStar and Harmony LSA represent one of the best operating economy and environment-friendly training aircraft on the market, outplacing concepts of electric-powered aircraft in useful load, endurance, and acquisition costs. EVEKTOR SportStar is popular worldwide for private pilot training (PPL A), Night flight training, single-engine commercial pilot training, time building, and, in the USA, and countries with FAA LSA rules also for instrument flight training (IR).

In 2005, the SportStar became the very first light sport aircraft in the world to receive FAA approval. Immediately after that, EVEKTOR received its first orders from the American flight schools. Sales of the aircraft expanded further to Australia, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, South Africa, European Union, and other countries. European EASA type certification and the Chinese civil aviation authority CAAC approval were received in 2012. In April/2022 SportStar received DGCA approval in India and the first SportStar shall be dispatched to India this August.

In June / 2022, EVEKTOR completed 8-unit fleet delivery of the Harmony LSA, the America’s version of the SportStar aircraft, to the training organization “Jet Access Flight Training” in the USA, with an option for additional fleet deliveries. “EVEKTOR Harmony LSA is phenomenal at developing stick and rudder skills,” said John Mauch, Vice President & Chief Flight Instructor of Jet Access Flight Training. ” EVEKTORs are responsive yet docile to fly; this helps students to develop the “man and machine” relationship sooner than traditional training planes. The aircraft also has superior go-around characteristics. EVEKTORs aircraft are night and day difference when compared to outdated airframe platforms with higher operating costs.”

In June / 2022 EVEKTOR established an authorized dealer – the company Sky Partners in Mexico and received has currently 3 aircraft orders for Mexican customers in production. This July the company is going to dispatch brand new manufactured airplanes also to Brazil and Argentina.

Among the European flight schools, SportStar is particularly popular in France, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, Romania, and Poland.

EVEKTOR supplies SportStar also to aviation academies that provide training for airline pilots. Flight academy “Aviation Career Center” based in Maribor, Slovenia operates a fleet of 3 SportStar aircraft. 

“Aviation Career Center” based in Maribor, Slovenia operates a fleet of 3 SportStar aircraft. “Aviation Career Center has made a thorough analysis of available training aircraft on the market,” said Sandi Knez, Accountable Manager & Senior Partner in Aviation Career Center and the former Director of Civil Aviation Authority in Slovenia. “With respect to intensive use of the aircraft in our flight academy and request for the design with the proven operation reliability, outstanding flight characteristics, easy maintenance, and low operating costs the academy has selected among all the trainers on the market the EVEKTOR SportStar RTC. In the Zero, to ATPL course the SportStar RTC fills the phases focused on PPL and Night Rating training, CPL single engine training, and Solo (PIC) Time Building“.


Low operating costs, flight schools proved reliability, and modern design makes the aircraft attractive also for organizations running aircraft renting businesses. Owner of the company “ACR Aviation” in France, operating a fleet of 10 SportStar, Denis Loeber said: “The SportStar RTC is a modern certified two-seater aircraft, fully adapted for air clubs. With a very high payload in its category, more than 6 hours of endurance, the best dual glass cockpit G3XT avionic equipment, 18 kts crosswind certified, the cockpit space and panoramic view, and easy and cheap maintenance are some of the benefits which convinced me to choose this plane. This aircraft is a proven economical and technical solution for intensive usage in air clubs. Ice on the cake: this plane is certified in the A-Class level in the Calypso French noise certification which places the SportStar RTC among the aircraft with the best low noise level in its category”.
