All new Thorpedo LP Light Sport for 2007

At the Sebring U.S. Sport Aviation Expo, IndUS Aviation, Inc. will offer a sneak preview of some of the new components that will make up the all-new Thorpedo LP, a new model Light Sport Aircraft to be released at Sun 'n Fun 2007.

"In our desire to remain proactive in the Light Sport Market, we are introducing the all new Thorpedo LP for 2007. We expect impressive performance gains for the LP including an increased cruise at 75% power of 20 knots and improved fuel efficiencies," commented Scott Severen, Director of Marketing and Sales for IndUS Aviation, Inc.

"The LoPresti team feels privileged to participate in this IndUS Thorpedo project." reported RJ Siegel, VP Operations for LoPresti Speed Merchants. "Our goals are lofty. We strive for more of everything: speed, economy, safety and fun."

"We are proud to partner with LoPresti Speed Merchants to assist us in further refining the definition of performance." Said Ram Pattisapu, president of IndUS Aviation. The Thorpedo LP will have an aerodynamically advanced engine cowl, as well as landing gear leg and wheel fairings, which IndUS refers to as "cowboy boots." New wingtips which integrate enclosed nav lights, landing lights, and strobes are also part of the new creations. In combination these are major refinements which give the LP a sleeker look while dramatically increasing speed and fuel efficiency.

The benefits of the new model are spectacularly higher cruise speed, improved fuel efficiencies, better visibility for collision avoidance and safer illumination for landings. The Thorpedo LP carries a Type Certificated heritage and sports full traveling utility along with the dependability and ruggedness that flight schools demand. This is not a "just around the patch airplane", but rather a practical traveler in a fun to fly airplane.

LoPresti Speed Merchants of Vero Beach, Florida designs and manufactures modifications to dramatically improve the performance of aircraft without using more horsepower or fuel. Their drag-reducing designs have earned awards and accolades from pundits and pilots all over the world. The company's mission is: "Life is Short ... Fly FAST!"

Indus Aviation Inc, based in Dallas, Texas is an innovator and leader in recreational aviation that manufactures "Ready to Fly" Light Sport Aircraft derived from the FAA Type Certified Thorp T211.
