According to Canadian Skies Magazine, French aviation company LISA recently announced the launch of its newest aircraft, an aquatic 100 horsepower recreational airplane called the Akoya. The craft can take off from and land on water, snow and traditional runways, and is easy to fly and very fuel efficient.
Set to be released to consumers in 2012, test pilots are impressed with the Akoya's agility and response, saying that flying is very intuitive and take-offs and landings are particularly simplified by unique air foils on the underside of the plane. The craft needs just 650 feet to take off or land on any surface.
"Offering more than just another new plane on the market, LISA Airplanes brings a further dimension to light aviation by developing the concept of recreational flying, where going from Point A to Point B becomes both simpler and faster, making it a real pleasure once again," said Erick Herzberger, president and co-founder of LISA Airplanes.
Pilots considering airplane ownership will likely want to look into pilot insurance. Insuring a plane and the pilot in the cockpit is a unique task that extends beyond the scope of most standard insurance policies. Aviators may want to consider contacting a pilot organization to get advice on finding the best comprehensive coverage at an affordable rate.
