In my post after last spring's EAA Sun 'n Fun convention in Lakeland, FL, I told you a bit about the Corbi Alto 100, a new, purpose-built S-LSA that entrepreneurs Ron Corbi, a longtime figure in aviation, and Dan Coffey said should be done by the end of the year.
True to their word, I got an excited email from Ron today that read:
"It's finally an SLSA!!!!!!!!!"
Congratulations to all the crew at Corbi Air, an established aircraft sales outfit in Salem, OH that's been a family business for more than 50 years.
The Czech Republic-designed (Direct Fly) Alto was reworked by Ron and Dan to enhance what they called the aircraft's "maintainability," by including features like American-made brakes, bucked rivets replacing pop rivets, an electronic electrical system and a Dynon Skyview...all for $99,995.
As you can see, the canopy slides forward for easy entry opening in flight.
Lots more to share once we get a peak in January.
