Discovery Aviation Launches Advanced XL-2 Aircraft

South Korean Aviation Company Among The First To Purchase

Discovery Aviation has started production of its new advanced XL-2 with a three aircraft order from a current XL-2 operator in Seoul, Korea. The business plan calls for production to ramp up in 2018 with full production capabilities to be achieved later in the year.

The new advanced XL-2 will feature an upgraded avionics suite which will include the Garmin G500 Dual Screen Electronic Flight Display, Mid Continent Standby Attitude Module, Garmin GDL 88, Bendix King KN-62A DME, Honeywell KR-87 ADF as well as the additional option of adding the STEC 30 autopilot.

The composite airframe and new avionics of the advanced XL-2 will offer a unique platform from which to train the next generation of commercial pilots with unbeatable operational costs as well as fulfilling much needed missions within the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle market.

As part of its business plan for the XL-2, Discovery Aviation is poised to take advantage for the need of 6,000 new advanced piston single engine training aircraft. As one of the only models in the market incorporating advanced composites and modular design, the XL-2 offers an unrivalled advantage over their competition.
 
While the new advanced XL-2 has additional capabilities, Discovery Aviation will still offer and support the base XL-2 which comes with a standard IFR avionics package that has achieved outstanding reviews.

"Our Discovery Aviation family is excited to bring this advanced aircraft to the world stage," said C. J. Corman, Vice President, Business Operations. This advanced XL-2 is just one of many improvements which we will see in the coming year and we are listening to our customers’ feedback and will provide the aircraft that the market demands.”

To date there have been 135 XL-2s’ manufactured, featuring an exceptional safety record and offering unparalleled operational costs, burning just 4.5 gph with its advanced Teledyne Continental Motors IOF-240 FADEC engine. The XL-2 is the only two seat, IFR certified aircraft in its category.
