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 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 Aeronautica factory in Ipeuna Brazil, the aircraft received FAA approval under the S-LSA category as a Light Sport Aircraft. Currently there are 24 Super Petrel LS Aircraft registered in the USA and 366 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
Super Petrel USA, Inc has in 4 years, become the largest distributor in volume, of the Scoda Aeronautica, LTDA produced Super Petrel LS Aircraft. We currently have aircraft located in Florida, Iowa, Montana, Minnesota, Nevada, Wisconsin, Georgia, South Carolina, Virginia, California and Washington. The list continues to expand with several aircraft in many of these states. We are developing a network of Authorized Sales Agent around the US and eventually designated businesses as Authorized Super Petrel LS Dealers. The goal is to increase our exposure to the flying community by means of “Tell, Show and Demonstrate”. We continue to participate in shows like, Sebring US Sport Aviation Expo, Sun-N-Fun, Deland Aviation Showcase and AirVenture at Oshkosh.
Each year we provide a maintenance training course at our Ormond Beach, FL facility. Attendees consist of mechanics, owners, operators and just plane interested individuals wanting to know more about the Super Petrel LS. Near future plans are to include a pilot refresher course for owners, operators and again anyone just interested in discovering more about the airplane. The course will consist of ground school and flight refresher. We continue to learn, grow and provide customer support and service. The company is strong and will be here for our customer’s needs in the future.
