Aerotrek Aircraft

Aerotrek Aircraft imports the A240 and A220 tricycle gear or taildragger Special Light-Sport Aircraft. A finely finished aircraft at an excellent price, Aerotrek has wide, affordable appeal.

One of the most consistent suppliers of reasonably-priced Light-Sport Aircraft is Aerotrek Aircraft. A seller of tricycle gear and taildragger aircraft, longtime light aircraft businessman Rob Rollison settled on Aerotrek. Over the years Aerotrek has firmly established itself on the Top-20 market share chart and you truy have to examine one of these beauties to appreciate the attention to detail.

At only $84,850 (at the end of 2012, subject to change, of course)... Aerotrek A240 and A220 remain price value leaders among more than 100 Special Light-Sport Aircraft. Yet especially with its newly standard radio, intercom, transponder-encoder and the beefy 100-hp Rotax 912 (up from the former 80-hp model that is still available), Aerotrek certainly doesn't act like a bargain-priced airplane. However, it does use entirely conventional construction executed by craftsmen who obviously care a lot about the final appearance of the plane they're building.

Rollison sells more than aircraft through his related AirplaneGear.com enterprise which represents high quality items like LightSPEED and Peltor headsets, Xcom radios and Becker avionics, Lynx helmets, Microair panel components plus other items too numerous to list here.

Rob is a most engaging person with a keen sense of humor. You'll like talking to him and you can expect honest, informed advice about flying products. Give him a call, send email, or visit his websites that are loaded with photos of the A240 or A220 plus the gear he sells.

  Aerotrek -- A240 & trailer (0414)
Aerotrek supplies a popular and well-priced everything but, you know, having a nice airplane isn't enough. Why not have a traveling hangar and home to go with your great Light-Sport Aircraft? With the money you save buying Aerotrek (half as much as some high-end LSA), you'll have money left over for other great toys, like a custom trailer. Your savings might not also cover the motorhome in this video, but watching may motivate you to work harder to acquire such a nice rig. Come have a look.
  Aerotrek -- A220 and A240 (04/13)
Aerotrek and their dual models -- the A220 taildragger and the A240 trigear -- have been an impressive performer in the market share race, steadily moving up our chart. At Sebring 2013, we spoke with U.S. importer Rob Rollison about how these handsome, very well priced Special Light-Sport Aircraft can work in a flight school environment. Having acquired more than 1,500 hours in a training environment, Rob said the Aerotrek still looks and flies great and some European models have more than 4,000 hours. Hear more in this video.
  Aerotrek -- A220 & A240 (0912)
MIDWEST LSA EXPO 2012 -- One of our series of many short videos from the fall show, this one on the Aerotrek A240. We'll also consider the A220, the taildragger. Both these two Light-Sport Aircraft are selling well and no wonder. They have an excellent price (around $80,000 in 2012) yet they are made very well with quality evident with a close inspection. Join us for a few details.
  Aerotrek -- A240 & A220
Aerotrek is the new name for a pair of Special Light-Sport Aircraft, the tricycle gear A240 and the taildragger A220. These reasonably priced aircraft (mid-$60,000 range) offer a good cruise in a lightweight, quick handling aircraft. The wings fold easily so you can make a trailer your hangar.
  $8.95 Aeropro Eurofox (04/07)
"Surprising Value in an Unsurprising Design" by Dan Johnson. Published in Light Sport and Ultralight Flying, April, 2007.
 
Pilot Report begins: On September 1, 2004, when the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) released the long-anticipated Sport Pilot and Light-Sport Aircraft regulations, a new aviation segment called light sport aircraft (LSA) was created. Some saw LSA as a bridge between ultralights and general aviation aircraft, but are LSA so different from ultralights? The answer is a mixed yes and no. Yes, many aircraft look different in that the extra weight they may possess allows them to have full composite fuselages, a panel

Pilot Report begins: Repatriate means "to restore or return to the country of origin." That's exactly what's happening with the Aeropro EuroFox, an Eastern European-built light-sport aircraft (LSA) based on American design work. It's coming to this country as a ready-to-fly LSA through importer Rollison Light Sport Aircraft (RLSA). Just as a car made in Detroit may incorporate a considerable number of parts that were manufactured overseas, LSA can be a combination of United States- and foreign-built parts as well. That's
