Remos AG

Remos AG is the manufacturer of the next generation GXiS. This beautiful composite design built by German craftsmen offers excellent performance, light responsive handling, and a deluxe cockpit finish to please any aviator.

Cruising at 117 mph after lifting off in just 600 feet, GXiS is perfectly adapted to the FAA and EASA rules for Light-Sport Aircraft. Changes in the newest model take the high-tech Rotax 912 iS Sport engine and integrate it in a way so friendly to pilots that the effort suggests not simplification (which it is) but the better term of "smartification." A single Engine Start button eases a process some found different and a bit challenging, helping the pilot enjoy the flight rather than reading manuals.

The Remos GXiS interior is thing of beauty, one that reminds occupants of a fine German motorcar. The state-of-the-art instrument panel features Dynon SkyView digital screens that handle many pilot duties with ease.

Overall, the leather seats, shapely panel (that will not bump your knees) and the classy layout will impress anyone who accompanies you in your handsome flying machine.

The Remos GX, which follows the popular G-3, is available around the world thanks to the passion of a gifted entrepreneur, Lorenz Kreitmayr, who is confined to a wheelchair. Despite his lack of mobility, Lorenz inspired his team to create and bring to market one of Germany's most attractive and well-designed sport aircraft. His success can be seen in photos but you really need to fly a GX to gain the fullest experience.

Remos occupies a modern factory, enabling the company to produce with world renown Germany quality. For years the GX-series has been one of finest aircraft and the new GXiS takes that even further. Remos' gleaming facility, an hour's drive from the famed German city of Berlin, boasts a substantial investment in advanced manufacturing technologies, a highly motivated work force, and its own 3,000-foot runway. Using state-of-the-art techniques and stringent test standards, GXiS pilots are assured of a recreational aircraft suited to the most discriminating buyers. The new facility is so good that the Stemme motorglider company (a very deluxe aircraft) has Remos doing their primary fabrication.

  Remos -- GX
Remos is an up and coming company that has taken the lead in FAA registrations and one reason is the new GX model that looks great and flies well. The interior was redone as was the wing construction making a nice upgrade from the G-3 that flew in Europe for many years. Pop its gull wing doors and see for yourself.

"Up-And-Comer... Remos GX" by Dan Johnson. Published in Plane & Pilot, March, 2009.
 
Pilot Report begins: New Remos GX Rises An LSA that was 10 years in the making may aptly be called a "mature design" within this nascent sector of piston aircraft. A few others share a similarly "ripe, old" heritage, but most are far newer than the trusty GA models in which many of us learned the art of flying. Designed by engineer Lorenz Kreitmayr, the first Remos G-3 took to the air in 1997 (10 years before the upgraded GX first flew). In 2008, N447RA, the first GX, arrived in the States for the big summer flyfest
