Pilots with S-LSA gliders like the Phoenix might start making comments. It could restrict their ability to fly over congested area or at night without regard to the pilot's certification level.

There is a new Appendix C listing the new restrictions that anyone with an Experimental aircraft/glider or anyone with a renewable airworthiness certification should be concerned with.
