Upgraded avionics and enhanced leg room are among the upgrades aircraft manufacturer Remos has made on its popular GX model light sporting aircraft. The improved plane made its debut public flight this month in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
The adjustments were made in response to the desires of American pilots, who asked for more cabin room and better visibility. Theo Paeffgen, CEO of Remos, said "We tried to accommodate what the Americans asked for."
The new model has been named the Remos GX NXT, and has a base asking price of $143,000. In addition to the added leg room and upgraded visibility, the plane also received enhancements to its navigation LED lighting, a new air vent to improve cabin cooling, moveable sun visor and upgraded wing struts that improve airspeeds.
The Remos GX NXT also comes fully equipped with a Garmin Aera 500 GPS, Dynon SkyView glass cockpit, engine monitoring system, embedded transponder and electronic flight instruments.
The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association reports that as of December 2010, there were 627,588 total FAA certified pilots. Of this number, 220,008 worked as private pilots, with the largest numbers found in the states of California, Texas and Florida. Life insurance for pilots is essential, no matter where the aircraft will be flying.
