Substantial Improvements Over G3 Predecessor
REMOS CEO Corvin Huber unveiled the new REMOS GX at AirVenture
2008 Tuesday. Among the changes incorporated are a new wing,
changes to the fuselage that allow a greatly expanded cargo area, a
ground adjustable Sensenich propeller and night VFR certification,
plus design features which enhance crew safety in the event of a
The new GX 30.5 foot tapered wing is shorter and is made
entirely of carbon fiber utilizing monocoque construction providing
low weight and high structural rigidity with higher wing loading.
The airfoil has been modified for better penetration in turbulence
as well as a higher roll rate.
Huber says stress tests substantiate the folding wings integrity
at +8 and -5G's. An integrated landing light and LED position
lighting are standard. The wings can be folded by two individuals
within five minutes for trailering or storage.
The GX aft fuselage retains its basic dimensions, but is
stronger and lighter. A new dorsal fin contributes to improved in
flight stability and improves the profile view aesthetics. Tie down
rings have been added to both the wing and tail cone.
The GX baggage space has been enlarged and allows for easy
storage for golf clubs, hunting or fishing equipment. Despite the
changes, the GX retains its 650 pound useful load capability. The
Sensenich ground adjustable propeller will enable adjustment of the
propeller for climb or cruise configuration, as needed.
Due to extensive use of carbon fiber and Kevlar technology, the
GX's empty weight is a low 670 pounds. The passenger area is a
Kevlar-wrapped cage which will allow for energy absorption and will
prevent dangerous fraying of carbon fiber structure in the event of
a mishap. The doors of the GX may be removed before flight.
The 46.8" wide GX cabin is four inches wide than a Cessna 172
and its door width is 42.5". Nose wheel steering is standard.
Dr. Michael Meirer, CEO of REMOS Aircraft Inc (US), tells ANN
the GX will be wholly-built at a central location. "Where the G3
aircraft was partially assembled in Poland, the GX will be totally
assembled at the new REMOS plant in Pasewalk, Germany," he
To date, about 250 G3's are flying around the world with about
60 to 65 of them in the US. There are 17 REMOS dealers located
throughout the States.
Available in two glass instrument panel configurations as well
as two classic configurations, the base price for a REMOS GX is
