In the last 2 weeks, I've had the same problem twice. In 2011 the FAA issued a new seat rail AD on the pre-restart Cessna airplanes. This new AD replaced the old seat rail AD and adds more inspection criteria. The AD is also required to be repeated every 100 hours and annual inspection (regardless of how the airplane is used).
Light Sport Aircraft. Another issue. Light Sport Aircraft are issued with a Special Airworthiness Certificate and get "Conditional Inspections" NOT "Annual Inspections". This may seem trivial but there are differences and if you look at the requirements of the Special Airworthiness Certificate, there is special wording that is required to be used in the log entry.
Also note LSA manufacturers will issue Safety Directives to correct unsafe conditions on their aircraft. To keep the SLSA airworthiness certificate valid, owners/operators MUST comply with all Safety Directives applicable to their aircraft as required by 14 CFR § 91.327(b)(4)
