Whew! After ten days in the hot sun, I’m glad Oshkosh is over…but what an event for Light-Sport Aviation. The whole story includes a last few days of whirlwind development climaxing in many new introductions. Folks from Gobosh* brought the all-metal low wing G-700S, an Americanized revision of the AT-3 from Poland. Aero Ltd’s AT-3 was created by Tomasz Antoniewski and a team of engineers known for the Wilga among other designs; it earned JAR-VLA certification in Europe (1999). *** Tim Baldwin and Dave Graham, once associated with the Symphony, won SLSA airworthiness for the G-700S just days before AirVenture 2007 opened. Both men also have business backgrounds in other fields, experience allowing the new company to make an grand entry with a refined product. G-700S comes well equipped for $107,000 to $124,000 and includes a 2-year/400-hour warranty. Financing is available. * “Gobosh” is a acronym borrowed from the go-go technology industry meaning Go Big Or Stay Home.
