Ok, Flateric is quite right, I think !
In the US and canadian definition, a light aircraft has a TOW
of not more than 12.500 lbs (5.670 kg), definitions in other
countries are probably similar, strictly spoken, neither the Corvette,
nor any of the Learjets fall in this category .

But judged against other airliners, they still are "light aircraft" ! ;)

And now back to single engined aircraft, as the majority of light
aircraft (one to six seats ?) have just one engine.
Maybe an interesting question : Which number of engines was the highest
for light aircraft ?

Does 'unbuilt' in the subject mean never built or only a prototype? There was a prototype of the twin engined Mooney.

Although mention has been made of the type elsewhere in the forum, I would like to add the Taifun Flugzeugbau Me 108F to this category. Although it was a development of the original Bf 108 Taifun communications aircraft, it still featured further improvements. Please find attached a GA and the text from Air Enthusiast International June 1974 issue.
