Where We've Been
In 2002, using much improved technology, building materials and production processes to include the ROTAX 912 engine, Scoda Aeronautica produced the first Super Petrel LS 100, serial number S0001. In 2008 the first Super Petrel LS was built. In 2014 after a team from the FAA visited the SCODA factory in Ipeuna Brazil, the aircraft received certification as an S-LSA. At the time of this writing there are 19 Super Petrel aircraft registered in the USA and 360 total aircraft world-wide.
What We're Doing Today
In January of 2016, we opened our new Aircraft Sales, Aircraft Re-Assembly, Transition Flight Training, Super Petrel Aircraft Maintenance and Parts Distribution Center. We are located at the Ormond Beach Airport, (KOMN) Florida.
Where We Are Going
The future for the Super Petrel LSA is bright. Each year our sales continue to increase as word of this fantastic airplane continues to spread. We are now entering what we refer to as “Phase 2” of our company plan for the future. We continue to re-assemble the aircraft when they arrive from Brazil as before however, we are now installing the Rotax engines, avionics and performing the initial flight test of each new aircraft at the Ormond Beach Airport (KOMN). Our final goal in “Phase 3”, is to completely build the Super Petrel LSA here in the USA using American skilled workers. The intent is to reduce the wait time from initial deposit to final delivery for our customers and to eventually be able to make the claim “Made in America”. Ormond Beach Florida, has proven to be a wonderful choice for our home in America. The City is most supportive and is now claiming the Super Petrel LSA as the “Ormond Beach Airplane”.
