First-time NBAA exhibitors Aviation Partners Group (APG) of Punta Gorda, Florida, and Oma Sud of Capua, Italy and Miami, are presenting here at NBAA 2013 the Oma Sud Skycar (B. No. N409). Designed and developed in Italy, the five-place, all-metal piston twin-engine Skycar is both FAA and EASA certified. Designed for missions ranging from executive transport to cargo hauling and patrol work, the aircraft is currently receiving enhancements including air-conditioning, composite three-bladed propellers, electronic ignition and tuned exhaust system.
Both APG and Oma Sud bring strong aviation capabilities to their cooperative effort. Oma Sud has been producing components for Airbus, Boeing and Eurocopter, while APG has been providing avionics design and installations for both fixed wing and rotorcraft around the world since 2006. Completions and avionics installations on the Skycar are being performed by APG at its 15,000 sq ft MRO facility in Punta Gorda.
