REMOS GXiS comes to AERO 2017

After an extensive flight testing campaign, the latest model of the REMOS family will be presented anew at AERO 2017. The ultralight certification for the composite high-wing aircraft is expected to be issued right in time for the exhibition.

Certification as a European LSA is also on a fast track. In addition, the German-based aircraft manufacturer will showcase the well-proven REMOS GXNXT at AERO.

Since the GXiS had its world premiere at AERO 2016, the REMOS team has extensively tested the first REMOS prototype with the fuel injected Rotax 912 iS Sport (74 kW/100 hp) under the hood. All flights ran smoothly: in hot summer or extremely cold winter weather, the GXiS with the call sign D-EPDC has proven itself in maneuvers very well. Back in summer 2016, the aircraft was flying in U.S. airspace when it was shown at the EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh.

The REMOS GXiS is the latest development in the successful and popular GX series. One major innovation with the GXiS is the integration of the Rotax 912 iS Sport with electronic fuel injection. The engineering team made the startup operation of this aircraft as easy as it is in a car. Thanks to SMARTstart, a system developed by REMOS, it takes just one push of a button to start the engine. Almost all preflight checks will be done automatically. The new engine has a significantly lower gas consumption compared to carbureted versions.

Another major improvement is the state-of-the-art glass cockpit with top-of-the-line avionics provided by Dynon and Garmin. Pilots will also find a new jet throttle in the center console that combines the control of power and wheel brakes in one lever.

The aircraft manufacturer, based in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, will also bring the GXNXT (known as GXnXES in the U.S.) to Friedrichshafen. A well-equipped aircraft with a carburated Rotax 912 S will be showcased at the booth.
