New Owners For Gobosh LSA

Aerospace Capital Partners, LLC to Acquire Gobosh Aviation

After nearly 8 months of negotiations, Gobosh LSA, LLC and Aerospace Capital Partners, LLC announced that they have reached an agreement for Aerospace Capital Partners to acquire Gobosh for an undisclosed amount. 

"This acquisition is excellent news for current and future owners and operators of Gobosh aircraft," said Tim Baldwin, President of Gobosh, at the Sebring LSA Expo Thursday. "Aerospace Capital Partners has the financial resources and experience to take Gobosh to the next level. Myself and Vice-President, Dave Graham will stay involved through the transition to assist with any concerns or questions and help make this a good experience for all involved."

Gobosh has been the exclusive US importer of the Gobosh 700, manufactured by Aero AT of Poland, and the Gobosh 800, manufactured by Aveko of the Czech Republic. "Light Sport Aircraft have been underutilized in the training environment. As the general aviation training fleet ages, flight schools will need to update their inventory of aircraft," said Chris Dillis, spokesperson for Aerospace Capital Partners.  "Light Sport Aircraft make an economical, safe alternative to traditional trainers" added Dillis. "We've done our homework, and have come to an agreement to become the new importer and distributor of what is easily the best LSA on the market for training".

The Gobosh 700 was designed from the ground up as a training aircraft. This aircraft is produced by an EASA certified aircraft manufacturer in Europe, operating to the same standards as FAR 23 manufacturers in the USA. Other LSAs are used in a training role simply because they are inexpensive. The Gobosh 700 was designed to be a training aircraft well before the LSA rules were adopted. "Because it is first and foremost a training airplane, it is extremely robust, well-built, and has superior handling characteristics, particularly compared with other LSAs", said Dillis.

Aerospace Capital Partners believes the market for a high-quality LSA in US flight schools is yet untapped. They believe, with the increasing popularity of the Sport Pilot Certificate, any flight school that does not have an LSA on its flight line within the next 2 years will be at a competitive disadvantage. "In order to remain viable," said Dillis, "flight schools will need a quality Light Sport Aircraft that will appeal to students and instructors alike. The Gobosh 700 fits the bill perfectly."

Aerospace Capital Partners expects to have a sales and support system operational by the end of February, 2011. Aerospace Capital Partners will also assume any warranty concerns or claims for existing Gobosh aircraft owners. In the meantime, Gobosh LSA will continue to support the aircraft already in the field.

Walter Jankowski, CEO of Aero AT, traveled from Poland to Sebring to be present for this announcement. "Aero AT will give full support to the new Gobosh organization during the transition period and beyond. I am of total conviction that the plan presented by Aerospace Capital Partners spells success for all involved," stated Jankowski.
