Also First Kit Built By SLO Air, Inc.
Aero-News has learned that NXT Kit # 7 was delivered to its new
owner, Ron Simard, in Panama, South America this month. The kit
represented a milestone -- for not only for being the first
international sale of an NXT kit, but also as the project was built
entirely by new distributor SLO Air, Inc. of San Luis Obispo,
Under the close scrutiny of Jon and Patricia Sharp, Kit 7 was
built and shipped from the new manufacturing facility in San Luis
Obispo. This marks the formal transition of the manufacturing and
direct support of the NXT program to SLO Air Inc, from Nemesis Air
"This has certainly
been an important step for the project and shows we can handle the
task of manufacturing and delivering the Nemesis NXT kit.
Supporting Mr. Simard is our next task and we are looking forward
to making his experience building his NXT an enjoyable one," said
Kevin Eldredge, President of SLO Air Inc.
Mr. Simard utilized the Builder Assistance Program with his kit.
During his 10 day stay in one of the suites at the factory, he
completed the fuel cell and trimmed/fitted nearly every part of his
new NXT kit. Previously, Mr. Simard built his own Glasair III, and
has spent the past five years helping several friends complete
various other kit aircraft.
SLO Air reports Simard is well on his way to building his NXT,
and is brimming with ideas for his creation. He has already
purchased and received his newly rebuilt Lycoming 720 to install on
SLO Air Inc. is the exclusive manufacturer and distributor of
the Nemesis NXT Aircraft Kit.
