USA Aircraft Distributor Near Landing LSA Amphibian in North Alabama [ VIDEO*]
Starting from the ground floor in a new era of Light Sport Aircraft (LSA), a north Alabama company is ready to bring one of the hottest new and much awaited amphibian models named the Freedom to the USA. LSA Aero is located at the Decatur Municipal Airport, Pryor Field in the facilities of North Alabama Aviation. Company partners are the distributors of a family of three Colyaer aircraft: the MARTIN 3 landplane, GANNET seaplane and FREEDOM amphibian. Manufactured by Colyaer SL of Pontevedra Spain the aircraft will initially be offered in completed production flying units, the possibility of kits will be considered later.
Since last spring, the GANNET seaplane has been shown at various locations where seaplane pilots gather both locally, as far away as Oshkosh and this year flown to Sun N Fun. However, there is no doubt that the FREEDOM amphibian version was stealing the imagination and the most desired. To expedite certification the FAA agreed to look at the FREEDOM first and then consider the MARTIN 3 and GANNET as a subset after certifying the FREEDOM.
The first FREEDOM is anticipated to be on static display at the Guntersville Splash In this May 20th. Soon after, an FAA certification inspection process is scheduled. The company is accepting deposits. “Our mission the past 9 months is to learn as much as possible about the operation, maintenance and support while developing all the manuals needed for a factory manufactured airplane,” said LSA Aero Company President Don Langford.
“We have a 10 hour transition course that is insurance approved. This does not guarantee insurance coverage, depending on an applicant’s history, but will be mandatory to obtain
coverage from the few underwriters that are going to cover LSA amphibians,” added Langford,” We have worked very closely with our insurance company to obtain coverage and ensure an accident-free future for the Colyaers.” -Betty Meyer, Staff Report.
