Alto 100: All-metal SLSA to debut at Sun 'n Fun

Targeted at flight schools and serious cross-country LSA owners, the Alto 100 will make its US debut at Sun 'n Fun in Lakeland, Florida, starting on April 13. In this heavily-populated class, the Alto 100 needs to do a lot to stand out. So it does.  

It hits the maximum values for the class in speed and weight, and it has all the best class features and components: a 100hp Rotax 912S engine and Sensenich carbon fiber ground adjustable prop; Matco wheels and brakes; a 7" Dynon Skyview EFIS/EMS glass; PS Engineering intercom; electric pitch and roll trim; and its all-metal construction features internal corrosion protection for long life – all in the base model, and all for $99,995. "Advanced" and IFR models are also available, ranging to $115,284. Options, including advanced Garmin navigation and comfort items like a bronze-tinted canopy and leather, are also available.  

Ron Corbi, President of Corbi Air, the importers and US support for the Alto 100, said, "Dan Coffey and I knew that we had to bring more than just a high-quality, good-flying airplane to a field that already had so many entries. We have that with the Alto 100. It is a machine that distinguishes itself in its manners, its practicality, its capability, range -- and its level of attention to pilot/owner needs."  

What makes the Alto 100 better than the competition, other than its overall clean and robust design? Detail, like all Teflon-coated wiring, to withstand high temperatures, as certified aircraft use. Detail, like a glovebox on the passenger side on the Basic model that may be replaced by a second glass panel in the Advanced and IFR models – and note another detail: all Alto 100s are fully prewired utilizing Vertical Power's VP-50 electronic switch and circuit breaker system and Fast Stack's Pro-G Hub for painless upgrades at any time. Dozens of significant details all add up to result in an airplane that is "the class of the class," without making a mockery of the spirit of affordable flight promised by the LSA movement.  

Myriad practical items abound, from thoughtful connectors in the wiring harness, to cockpit layout and amenities, to dozens of other details that attendees at Sun 'n Fun will appreciate next week!  

Corbi Air will be in Sun 'n Fun's new hangar, in space EH41. The public and dealers are invited.
