Gobosh Aviation introduced the new Gobosh 700X at the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo in Sebring, Florida.
The 700X is a Dynon-equipped version of the Gobosh 700S, an all-metal Light Sport Aircraft.
“The 700S was introduced with conventional instrumentation at AirVenture 2007,” stated Tim Baldwin, president of Gobosh Aviation. “Since then, a number of sport pilots and flight schools who prefer a rugged all-metal aircraft have asked about offering a Gobosh 700 with an electronic primary flight display. Once again, Gobosh responded to the desires of the market and developed the new 700X.”
At $99,990, the Gobosh 700X Sport is almost $10,000 less than the current Gobosh 700S Sport with conventional instruments. The 700X is equipped with a single Dynon D180 EFIS/EMS display and a Garmin GPS196 – a combination designed to enhance situational awareness for the 700X Sport pilot, Gobosh officials said.
Pilots can upgrade to the 700X Elite and Elite Plus models, which boast two-tone exterior paint schemes, upgraded Garmin GPS units, dual Dynon panels, Bose headsets and more.
Gobosh is offering a stimulus package: The first six consumers who secure an order with a $25,000 deposit can either take $5,000 off the base price or apply the funds to optional equipment or toward an Elite or Elite Plus upgrade.
Additionally, people interested in forming a private partnership to purchase a Gobosh 700 or 800 series aircraft can join The Aircraft Partnership Association for free, and search for other pilots interested in owning an LSA.
