Remos GX performs flawlessly in North Dakota cold weather testing

REMOS Aircraft has just completed a cold weather testing program in Grand Forks, North Dakota. The aircraft was taken to the northern region by the REMOS factory in an effort to determine how the aircraft would perform in extreme cold environments.

According to Early Boyter, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for REMOS, "The REMOS GX performed without a flaw during the two-day exercise. The GX flew 10 missions at temperatures as low as minus 11 degrees Fahrenheit with the wind chill rated at minus 30 degrees F. It started promptly in every instance, quickly reached safe operating temperatures and kept the occupants warm and comfortable with plenty of cabin heat."

REMOS had prepared for the exercise with the installation of a Tanis Heater Kit and an inline thermostat to help keep the engine temps within operating limits. The flights took place over a period of two days and were spaced with up to 1-1/2 hour cool down periods between flights. During the cool down periods, no engine heat, blankets or auxiliary heat was allowed.

Shortly after boosting the Grand Forks economy with the purchase of coats, hats scarves and gloves for the REMOS staff, Boyter went on to say: "We are used to cold weather operations in Rogers, Arkansas, but this took the challenge to a whole new level. It was great to see the aircraft perform so perfectly in these conditions."

The opposite extreme is demonstrated in Sebastian, Florida, at the company's East Coast Sales and Distribution Center. At that location, the aircraft regularly flies with the doors off to provide natural air-conditioning to students and owners who are generally in shorts and T-shirts.
