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.

In the late ’90s, an earlier iteration of Remos Aircraft delivered their first aircraft, a G-3 Mirage, originally designed by the very talented Lorenz Kreitmeyer.
On April 13, 2017, only briefly after the Aero Friedrichshafen show ended, LSA manufacturer Remos has a major announcement.
Are excited general aviation pilots kidding themselves about BasicMed? At least one prominent light aviation expert thinks so and judging from comments I’ve received, I am inclined to say this is much more common than some want to believe.
Almost every year at AirVenture Oshkosh, some pilot or team of pilots performs some sky writing, that is, trailing smoke while flying precisely enough that you can read what they are writing from the ground.
Video review: 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.
Oshkosh is on! OK, not today. The big show starts tomorrow, but you wouldn’t know it as airplanes are already arriving in droves and the grounds are rapidly filling.
Think back far enough in the still-fairly-new LSA sector and you should recall a time when one brand made some major impact on all of personal aviation.

Splog: Ownership Changes at Remos
This is one of those bad news—good news stories. The bad news for Remos Aircraft is being forced to file for what Germany calls “creditor protection” and what Americans might regard as bankruptcy.
A fun thing happened this weekend. Such pleasures occur regularly across the USA where we enjoy so much aviation freedom.
In a valid but failed attempt, LSA pilot Michael Combs tried to set a Coast-to-Coast record and came up just 91 miles short (out of 1,954) when thunderstorms blocked his route.
Our roving reporter offers coverage of the 2012 Rocky Mountain LSA Expo event.
Recently, an AvWeb video stirred controversy among many LSA fans; I heard from several and that usually means more feel similarly.
Since the beginning of LSA time, way back in 2005 (when the first LSA was approved), LSA have arrived on American shores from overseas factories.

Sign of the times: cut costs wherever possible. And kudos to those LSA makers who can cut weight too!

An LSA that was 10 years in
the making may aptly be
called a “mature design”
within this nascent sector
of piston aircraft.
It’s a great thing when a plan comes together. Consider an extension of the LSA Tour that debuted after Sebring 2011.
Splog: Remos Teams with LoPresti
Folks with a GA background will know the name LoPresti… the late, great Roy LoPresti was a prominent aeronautical engineer who became famous for finding ways to streamline and otherwise enhance existing airframe designs to squeeze more speed out of them.

Knocking around the ‘Net looking for signs that Light Sport is alive and well… *** Michael Combs is nearing the end of his 19,000 mile odyssey — what a vision.
Once upon a time, there was a purveyor of flying machines and a trainer of pilots in the great kingdom of Texas that wondered why more people hadn’t come to fly the Planes of Sport.
In its first year as the AOPA “Summit” (versus “Expo”), the 70-year-old, 415,000-member organization made lots of changes large and small.
We’ve arrived at the end of the main float-flying season, but two of our largest Light-Sport Aircraft manufacturers just announced floatplane models.

Through the first six months of 2008, Light-Sport Aircraft deliveries have reflected the same challenges afflicting the rest of general or sport aviation…and for that matter, the overall U.S.
I can identify four factors in the economy presently affecting airplane sales: Potential customers (often with plenty of assets or creditworthiness) see the value of their stock portfolio going up and down like a roller coaster; worry over their once-soaring real estate, now down markedly in some areas; witness the continuing rise of the euro-dollar exchange rate, bringing much higher prices for many LSA; and, fret over a climate of political uncertainty during another election cycle.
Lots of folks are wondering about, or complaining about, the seemingly high prices of Light-Sport Aircraft.
Most pilots know AOPA, the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, has been fighting the user fee battle…and they’ve been doing well resisting the might of the U.S.
Now we count 32 new Special Light-Sport Aircraft that have won certification…all within less than one year!
