Texas Aircraft Manufacturing Delivers First Colt-SL S-LSA

Features Dynon SkyView HDX Touchscreen, SkyView Autopilot, Airframe Parachute, And A Distinctive UF 'Gator'-Inspired Paint Scheme

Texas Aircraft Manufacturing has delivered its first new-generation Colt-SL S-LSA to Richard (Ricky) Youschak, of Gainesville, Florida.

“I cannot express how happy and proud I am of our entire team. Just a year ago, the Colt S-LSA was still in development, and we had just opened the doors at our facility here in Hondo, Texas,” Texas Aircraft Manufacturing’s co-founder, Matheus Grande said. “To be here today and to deliver our first Texas-built Colt is truly a blessing.”

“It is also exceptionally gratifying to have Colt number one going to Ricky, a young man who exemplifies what light sport aircraft are all about,” he said. “He and his father were looking for an aircraft that they can both enjoy flying. Ricky is a private pilot and his father has a sport pilot certificate. The Colt fits both of their needs. It is an extremely modern, capable and safe airplane that is not only fun to fly, but extremely efficient for their frequent recreational flights.”

“We looked at several new LSAs, and while they all had their merits, the all-new Colt really stood out as something special,” Ricky said. “The Colt flies like a much larger aircraft, so the transition from the 172 to the Colt was very easy for me.”

“While the new Dynon EFIS and airframe parachute were strongly in the Colt’ favor, the biggest advantage was when my father and I visited the factory in Hondo, Texas, we saw the pride and passion that went into building the Colt,” he said. “They have truly made the whole experience delightful for my family and me. That kind of passion and attention to detail has to create an outstanding airplane.”

“Texas Aircraft is raising the bar on quality, safety, and service,” Richard Youschak, Sr., said. “Their professional staff made the experience of buying our airplane fun from the design phase through delivery, and their exceptional service didn’t end there. I’m extremely happy with our Colt and Texas Aircraft.”

One of the truly ‘special touches’ provided by Texas Aircraft was an orange and blue, University of Florida Gators inspired paint scheme.

“I’m studying Nuclear Engineering at UF, so I am really looking forward to showing off my ‘Gator Pride’ at all the airports as my father and I fly throughout northern Florida, the Bahamas, and, to and from, my family home in Fort Myers,” Ricky said. “My father and I enjoy flying together and our new Colt will be the perfect airplane for us to share our airborne adventures for years to come.”

“I can’t tell you how happy everyone at Texas Aircraft is about being able to help Ricky and his family achieve their dream of aircraft ownership. Giving people the gift of affordable, reliable, and safe aircraft operation was the reason we developed the Colt S-LSA in the first place,” Grande said. “We are extremely grateful to the entire Youschak family for putting their faith and trust in Texas Aircraft.”
