LS Sport Model with Rotax 912iSS-100HP Liquid/Air Cooled engine.
With over 20 years of continuous improvement and over 350 planes flying around the world, the Super Petrel LS biplane is a proven design, providing smooth forgiving stalls, excellent stability and comfort, incredible short takeoff distances from land or water, precise handling at slow speeds, and extremely stable crosswind landings.
Flying the Super Petrel LS is simply PURE FUN!
Efficient Lift -
Our biplane configuration has long narrow wings with a short chord line just like a glider, lots of low-drag lift. Wing chord depth is shallow for faster, efficient airfoils.
The sponsons are attached firmly to the lower-wing, just below the N-struts where they are rock-solid. This is in sharp contrast to other amphibian designs where the sponsons are hung from the high mono-wing, with struts and sometimes guy wires to place them down near the water where they can be effective. However, these arrangements can be much less sturdy, and in some planes are a known and proven weak spot.
No Flaps -
Because aircraft has very low approach speed, the pilot maintains full control, without flaps or the need for a pronounced flare, to a simple landing on all types of water. Landings on water or land are nearly the same, adding to the operational ease of flying the Super Petrel LS.
Very Flip Resistant -
Most all seaplanes are known for their tendency to flip over easily when landing in the water and things aren’t just right. But not in the Super Petrel LS. Its unique biplane design, along with the special design of the hull and its tricycle landing gear, places the center of buoyancy behind the center of gravity and behind the center of lift. The result is that this plane nearly refuses to flip over in those very dangerous situations for other amphibious aircraft. It’s just one more way the Super Petrel is as forgiving as it is easy to fly.
