2008 Models Offer New Equipment, "Show Quality Fit And
The Sport Aircraft Expo at Sebring, FL is set to kick off later
this week... and planemakers are eager to display their new models.
One of those companies is Dallas, TX-based IndUS Aviation, which
will display its heavily revamped Thorpedo LSA throughout the
Representatives with IndUS say their 2008 planes will sport new
standard equipment, as well as "show quality fit and finish" (an
older model is shown above.)
"We have been observing the market and are dramatically 'upping
the ante,'" said Scott Severen, Director of Marketing and Sales for
IndUS. "We are adding many standard features with no increase in
the cost of the aircraft. In addition, we have refined our
manufacturing processes to substantially improve the quality, fit
and finish of our aircraft. This is a markedly different airplane
than we offered a year ago!"
Visible on the outside are a sleeker engine cowl, boarding
steps, wingtips with enclosed landing lights. The company also
refined the aircraft's sliding canopy.
The interior is adorned with a new durable wrinkled finish panel
with all engraved markings and placards, and stainless steel kick
plates on the carpet flooring.
Not immediately visible, but still important, improvements include
a fireproof firewall coating, pass-through connectors, braided
stainless steel fuel and oil lines, and all aircraft-grade circuit
breakers and switches.
Perhaps best of all, Severin states current customers may also
take advantage of the upgrades applied to new models.
"As a part of our customer commitment, we are offering many of
these items as a no cost 'Refreshment' from the factory," he said.
"Other upgrades may be added at on an "At Cost" basis.
