Europe’s most important general aviation exhibition will take place in Friedrichshafen from April 20-23.
The new model, named REMOS GXiS, is powered by the Rotax 912 iS Sport engine with electronic fuel injection. It also offers avionics by Dynon and Garmin.
With this new version, REMOS is heading towards the European LSA with EASA certification, according to company officials.
The REMOS GXiS is a milestone in the development of the aircraft, which is manufactured in Pasewalk, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Germany.
While the airframe remains the same, engineers did redesign the cowling to accommodate the new Rotax engine. The redesigned cowling is just part of the completely optimized cooling system, according to company officials. There are also many invisible modifications on the fuel system and on the electric system on board.
In fact, the entire firewall-forward section of the aircraft has been redesigned, company officials said, noting this was necessary to implement the Rotax 912 iS Sport.
Besides the Dynon EFIS and Garmin GTN 750, the avionics features the collision avoidance system TRX-1500 by Air Avionics, which receives ADS-B-signals. The transponder installed in the GXiS sends ADS-B-signals.
Like all REMOS aircraft, the GXiS is equipped with a ballistic parachute made by the US-manufacturer BRS.
