Midwest Sport Aviation has appointed AeroSport as an authorized dealer of the Cheetah XLS Light Sport Aircraft from Rainbow Aircraft.
Owned by Jeremy and Daniela Knoll, the AeroSport office is located in Twin Lakes, Wis., with their maintenance hangar and private strip located nearby in Hebron, Ill., about two miles north of Galt Airport (10C).
“The LSA community is really emerging, so we are excited to be joining the Rainbow Aircraft family as an authorized dealer of the Cheetah XLS at this time,” stated Jeremy Knoll. “This is the perfect aircraft for sport pilots not only because of its incredible performance and versatility, but because of its low initial cost and its simple construction contribute to its low maintenance costs. In addition, we look forward to working with to our distributor Midwest Sport Aviation and providing aircraft enthusiasts with not only sales, service, and support, but also our kit build-assist program, and future instruction and training programs.”
Jon Syvertson, president of Midwest Sport Aviation, said: “Besides their enthusiasm for the Cheetah, you will find that Jeremy and Daniela are focused not just on sales but as a full services dealer. They will be offering sales, maintenance services, and light sport training out of their beautiful grass strip that has a 2,000 foot east-west strip and a 1,500 foot north-south strip. When visiting their facilities if you need a place to stay they have a very nice guest house on the field to make your stay worry-free and comfortable. This is a family operation. After flying with Jeremy for about 20 minutes, Jeremy reminded me why I love flying this aircraft so much. He said, ‘You just couldn’t make it stall very easy and it was so easy to fly. It is just fun to fly’. “
The Cheetah XLS is available in both tail dragger and nose wheel configuration and with your pick of motor. The Rotax 912 80 and 100 hp motors, the Rotax 582, as well as the Jabiru 2200a are supported configurations. The aircraft is offered ready-to-fly as a certified light sport aircraft (SLSA) as of September 2009, or it is also available in kit form as an experimental amateur built aircraft (EAB) or as an (ELSA).
