Comp Air 6.2 to be Displayed at SUN ‘ FUN 2023

High-Wing, Full-Cantilever with 650-Hp Turboprop Option

Comp Air Aviation, the Merritt Island, Florida-based manufacturer of high-performance aircraft and float kits, plans to display its Comp Air 6.2 at Booth MD 7-B of Lakeland, Florida’s SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo 2023.

A great deal of progress has been made on the Comp Air 6.2 since SUN ‘n FUN 2022, when the model was introduced as little more than a fuselage and some big promises. Development of the aircraft has continued over the past year, and the 6.2 is mere days away from landing in Lakeland and making its first public appearance. 

The display aircraft is powered by a 350-horsepower, twin-turbo Lycoming engine mated to a Hartzell composite Top Prop. The Comp Air 6.2’s formidable power-train and one-hundred-gallon fuel capacity will move a two-thousand-pound useful load 840-nautical-miles at a cruising-speed of 175-knots. What’s more, the aircraft’s 22-cubic-foot baggage compartment ensures pilots and passengers arrive at their destinations with more than just the clothes on their backs.

Aircraft enthusiasts looking for even more power, performance, and payload will rejoice in the knowledge that a 650-horsepower turbine powerplant option is available for the Comp Air 6.2. The turbine mill increases the machine’s useful load to over 3,500-pounds and cruise-speed to a crisp 230-knots.

The Comp Air 6.2 was designed to carry passengers or cargo with maximum efficiency. The aircraft’s lightweight and aerodynamic airframe, constructed of laminated carbon-fiber, reduces drag and increases fuel-efficiency while providing a strong yet lightweight structure for maximum performance. All told, the Comp Air 6.2 is an ideal conveyance for individuals requiring a versatile airplane capable of transporting passengers or cargo with ease.

The experimental kit iteration of the Comp Air 6.2 arrives with most of the structural assembly and laminations already completed. In designing the kit, Comp Air’s objective was to make completion of the aircraft as easy as possible for the builder, thereby occasioning a more enjoyable construction experience. The complete airframe kit—for which builder assist options are available—retails for $327,000. 

Comp Air Aviation invites all SUN ‘n FUN 2023 attendees to visit Booth MD 7-B and get an up-close-and-personal look at the Comp Air 6.2.
