CHENNAI/HYDERABAD: Remos Aircraft GmbH, a Germany-based company that manufactures high-tech components for the aviation industry and builds light sports aircraft (LSA), is all set to hover over the Indian skies.
“We are in the process of obtaining certification for our Remos GX glass cockpit LSAs from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation and the Union ministry of civil aviation. It should take another six months for the process to complete,” AN Hanfee, adviser to SRK Aviacom, the exclusive dealership for Remos in India and South Asia, told Business Standard during the recently concluded India Aviation 2012 here.
The Remos LSA is relatively a simple aircraft with a shorter training/flying schedule. The LSA is limited to two seats. The Remos GX aircraft accelerates rapidly and takes off in less than 300 feet. The climbing power is more than 30 per cent higher than other light aircraft, and a climb speed of 80-90 miles per hour is reached within a short time.
“LSAs provide a golden opportunity for banner-towing in the aerial advertising space, and also for agricultural spraying and pilot training. We will be importing four Remos LSAs to India once we obtain the certification,” Hanfee said.
