LISA Airplanes 

LISA Airplanes at France Air Expo

 

 


While AKOYA carries on its flight tests and certification program, LISA Airplanes is exhibiting at the France Air Expo show on the
 International Airport Lyon Bron (LFLY) from June 4 to 6 2015. 


Previously held in Cannes (South of France), this show has become a major event for general aviation year after year and gathers aviation enthusiasts, aircraft owners, and professionals of the industry.
 
Besides displaying the last videos of the AKOYA in flight, LISA’s Team will present its last progresses and the multiple innovations that make this airplane unique.

 

 

 

About LISA

 

LISA Airplanes––a French company with international ambitions––creates, produces, and distributes top of the range airplanes, products, and services that are centered on humankind and its mobility with the intention of creating a new aviation, which suggests a change in lifestyle. From this philosophy, a first aircraft is born––AKOYA.

About AKOYA

 

AKOYA is a two-seater amphibious airplane with a unique design and a wealth of features. From ground, water, or snow, the AKOYA takes its passengers 1,250 miles away (2,000 km) thanks to its impressive fuel efficiency of 42MPG (5.6L/100km) and can reach the speed of 135kts (250km/h). After a pleasant and quick flight, the AKOYA lands on a less than 650-foot field (200m) and folds its wings to be parked in a garage. To reach such performance with no compromises, LISA Airplanes has designed an exclusive innovation in the aviation field, which allows landing on multiple surfaces. The Multi-Access technology is a unique combination of two hydrofoils, a retractable landing gear equipped with skis and folding wings. The AKOYA is designed to fulfill the LSA (Light Sport Aircraft) regulation––the new American standard that is to become an international standard such as in Europe with the CS-LSA implementation. 

About France Air Expo

 

Since 2007, France Air Expo is one of the biggest events of general aviation in Europe. This meeting brings aviation enthusiasts and manufacturers eager to talk about the innovation and technological progress. Located for eight years in Cannes, the Cannes Air Show has changed its destination and its name to become France Air Expo, a traveling exhibition.

NATA Statement

NATA Statement In Support Of Tiberi Bonus Depreciation Legislation

 

This month, Representative Pat Tiberi (R-OH) reintroduced legislation to make permanent the immediate expensing of 50 percent of new investments in equipment and software. Immediate expensing, or bonus depreciation, expired at the end of 2014. The House of Representatives approved similar legislation in 2014. 

 

The following is a statement by National Air Transportation Association President and CEO, Thomas L. Hendricks:

 

“NATA deeply appreciates Representative Tiberi’s commitment to this important job creating legislation and urges the House Ways and Means Committee to give it prompt consideration. The legislation’s permanent extension of 50 percent expensing for new equipment and software will assist the general aviation sector by encouraging aviation businesses to make immediate capital investments in the U.S. economy.”

GAMA Praises U.S. Representatives Graves and Veasey for Their GA Caucus Leadership

The General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) last month welcomed U.S. Representative Marc Veasey (D-TX) as the new Co-Chair of the bipartisan U.S. House General Aviation Caucus. Representative Sam Graves (R-MO) will continue to serve as the other Co-Chair.

The House General Aviation Caucus serves as a forum for highlighting and educating members of Congress about general aviation and its important contributions to the U.S. economy. Established in 2009, the House General Aviation Caucus holds regular briefings, events, and other activities to ensure members and their staffs stay up-to-date on the issues facing the general aviation community.

“We are delighted that Congressman Veasey—with his strong understanding of general aviation and manufacturing issues—will join Congressman Graves in this key leadership role in the 114th Congress,” GAMA President and CEO Pete Bunce said. “Congressman Veasey spoke eloquently at GAMA’s General Aviation Jobs Rally in Dallas, Tex. this past March about the significant economic and jobs impact of general aviation manufacturing on his district and the nation. We look forward to working closely with him on issues important to the general aviation community, such as streamlining the certification process, enhancing safety, and promoting policies that sustain manufacturing. Congressmen Graves and Veasey will be a powerful team to lead the Caucus in the 114th Congress.”

GA Groups Urge FAA to Take Immediate Steps to Lower Barriers to ADS-B

The general aviation community has banded together to urge the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to address critical barriers to ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance—Broadcast) equipage, including high cost and lack of certified solutions for some types of aircraft.

In a joint letter sent to FAA Administrator Michael Huerta on Jan. 23, 14 general aviation groups representing tens of thousands of aircraft owners asked the FAA to take aggressive steps that would allow more aircraft to meet the agency’s mandate to equip for ADS-B Out by 2020.

“We hear every day from members who want to meet the FAA’s mandate but can’t, often because they can’t afford it or because there is simply no path to compliance,” said Mark Baker, president of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA). “Too many of these pilots tell me they’ll be doing a lot less flying if we can’t find workable, affordable solutions before the mandate takes effect.”
