That looks SO inviting ...!

What are we looking at here... a twin engine push pull Quicksilver?
I'd like to know flight performance! Hope it will be posted
Looks to be on floats too!!
Yes this is a Quicksilver Sport II With 503 Engines. Inspection over passed but not as light sport because of twin engines. You must have private pilot with multi engine and sea plane multi engine. I will fly off the 40 hours in the spring. I do not have multi eng sea and it would be so expensive I probably will not persue that rateing.
I think and I could be mistaken but if it has 2 engines on it you must be rated for twin engines to fly it. At that was my understanding. Doesn't matter if it is a barn door or an ultralight or an LSA the twin thing applys. The little Twin Bee electric airplane that has been in the news lately must be flown by a person with a twin engine rating.
No, the regulations allow you to fly just about anything (solo only) if it's an experimental. I don't remember the precise section of the regulations but it came up recently on another forum. The aircraft's operating limitations, though, may have language requiring an appropriately rated pilot.
A person holding a student pilot certificate can solo just about anything* without a rating but with the appropriate instruction and an instructors endorsement.
And a person that holds any higher certificate (Light Sport, Recreational, Private, Commercial, ATP) can also solo anything without a rating. The question remains: does this solo flight require an instructors endorsement?
One instructor told me that this endorsement is not required. (even if not experimental)
* IFR flight requires an instrument rating
