Magnaghi Aeronautica Unveils The New LSA Model And The Sky Arrow Aerial Work Platform (AWP)
A "highly updated" LSA was introduced at AirVenture in Oshkosh Tuesday afternoon by Italian manufacturer Magnaghi Aeronautica. The updated Sky Arrow light-sport aircraft (LSA) sports new extended wing tanks, modified aerodynamics on the stabilizer, and a new, streamlined leaf-spring landing gear. Other new components, such as Beringer wheels and brakes, will are expected to enhance ground handling of the aircraft. A 10-inch Dynon SkyView system and a completely redesigned instrument panel are part of the cockpit updates to the Sky Arrow.
The company also introduced a Sky Arrow designed as an Aerial Work Platform-ONE (AWP-ONE), with ONE representing Observation, News, and Law Enforcement. The Sky Arrow AWP is available in three more payload configurations, with different sensors allowing terrain mapping (TMA), environmental research (ERA), and early wildfire detection (WFD). The Sky Arrow AWP-ONE at the booth features a Goodrich sensorial system based on a TASE 300 gyro-stabilized camera, allowing videoing and recording of activities on the ground.
“We are on a dual track for both the recreational and professional market – commented Giorgio Iannotti, Magnaghi’s Chief Operating Officer - with a highly proven design which encompasses the highest operational flexibility and flying qualities”.
The Sky Arrow is an Italian all-composite, high-wing aircraft with tandem seating in a pusher configuration. It was first introduced in 1992. Several hundred Sky Arrows, in versions ranging from LSA models to FAR Part 23 certificated aircraft, are currently operated worldwide.
