Welcome Back!


Atlanta Sport Flight

Atlanta Sport Flight, at Atlanta Fulton County Field (also known locally as "Charlie Brown Airport"), will soon be home to the new Alto LSA. Paul Volle, owner of Atlanta Sport Flight, recently purchased an Alto. "The key to success is to be profitable, so we examine operating costs, maintenance and durability. The Alto has a low acquisition cost, with a durable airframe and quality components, that should yield a very competitive life-cycle cost." Visit www.corbiair.com and www.flyalto.com.

FIKI For Bonanza G36

CAV Aerospace has received amended STC approval from the FAA to install the TKS Flight Into Known Icing (FIKI) protection system in Bonanza G36 aircraft. The company is scheduling installation of the proprietary TKS system in Bonanza G36s for a base price of $47,500. "Known ice protection through CAV's TKS system boosts Bonanza G36 capability, and gives owners additional peace of mind," CAV Aerospace President Kevin Hawley said. Visit www.cav-aerospace.net.

New Remos Dealer

The newest member of the Remos Pilot Center network is Skybound Aviation, based at Cape Girardeau Regional Airport. The two principals are Glenn McCallister, who's taking charge of sales, and Beverly Cleair, CFI, who's handling flight-training operations. Both are pilots with extensive flying experience. McCallister has owned a Remos GX for the past two years. "I was so impressed with the performance and low operating costs that I decided it was worth a lot more involvement," said McCallister. "We bought a new GX for training, renting and demos. It's been busy since we took delivery a few months ago." The company expects to become a Remos Service Center. Visit www.remos.com.
