Updated REMOS GX Light Sport Aircraft Makes Its Debut

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 mishap.

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 said.

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 $120,500.
