Lindy's grandson recently flew across in a Lancair, I think. That's definately smaller than his grandfather's Spirit.

But I think Lindy still gets the nod for the smallest without signifigation navigation aids and with signifigant risk of failure, in the small aircraft department.

People have flown light aircraft of nearly every conceivable size across the Atlantic. I even believe some guy made a crossing in an ultralight a while back. I believe that, using the northern routes, the longest required over-water leg can be as short as 600 nm. This makes it theoretically possible for many light single and twin engine aircraft to do it. There are other considerations though - they won't let just anyone make a crossing. You have to meet certain standards, carry appropriate equipment and have special training.
