The Russians who brought the Sigma Aircraft over from Samara to AirVenture 2005 were not prepared for the enthusiastic response they received. While a Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) application has not yet been completed for the Sigma, Sportsplanes.com has signed an agreement to represent the marketing, sales and service interests of the Sigma in North America.
“The response during and immediately after AirVenture was significant,” said Sportsplanes.com CEO Josh Foss. “The certification should not take more than a couple months. What’s significant is that in the week after AirVenture, we got dozens of phone calls on the aircraft. People are really excited about the style of that design. The Sigma also makes an efficient float plane with its high mounted engine. This is really an SUV for the sky.”
After AirVenture, the Sigma was taken to Florida where it is expected to receive LSA certification. Sportsplanes.com then plans to take it on a national tour.
