Light Sport Pilots need to know instruments

Light Sport Pilots need to know instruments. Are you getting ready to do your cross-country flight for your Light Sport cert, If so do you know you need to know how to fly by instruments...

As I was going for my flight we found out at the last meeting that I need it it... check out 61.93(e)(12) which status:

Control and maneuvering solely by reference to flight instruments, including straight and level flight, turns, descents, climbs, use of radio aids, and ATC directives. For student pilots seeking a sport pilot certificate, the provisions of this paragraph only apply when receiving training for cross-country flight in an airplane that has a VH greater than 87 knots CAS.

So then if your flying in a plane that can do greater then 87 knots you need the training..
