Stemme AG of Strausberg, Germany (Booth 117), is showcasing its S10VT high-performance motor glider this week at EAA AirVenture 2014 in Oshkosh, Wis., on the heels of forging a manufacturing and marketing agreement with light sport aircraft OEM Remos Aircraft of Pasewalk, Germany. The S10VT, powered by a 115-hp Rotax 914 F turbocharged engine, features a patented folding propeller that enables the engine to be deployed or stowed in a matter of seconds, without changing the aircraft’s aerodynamics or center of gravity.
There’s no better way to start off an EAA AirVenture show in Oshkosh, Wis., with a little flying out of the world’s busiest airport (during the week-long show, at least). Last year, the Gobosh folks were kind enough to invite me to fly the Gobosh 700A Light Sport Aircraft (LSA). This year, Remos Aircraft is demonstrating its newest LSA, the GX NXT, a high-wing composite two-seater powered by a 100-hp Rotax 912ULS.
A pair of Remos G-3/600 light sports aircraft (LSA) arrived Friday to tackle a market far from their base in Germany. Introduced in 1998, the G-3 claims superiority over Cessna’s similarly sized but more recent SkyCatcher, an airplane with which Remos CEO Michael Meirer declares he is in head-to-head competition.
