|One of the oldest manufacturers of
ultralight and light sport aircraft was at the E.A.A. Sun N
Fun Convention, and had a booth in the LSA Mall in Paradise
City. Danny Dezauche owner of CGS Aviation who purchased the
company in 2009 had on display several of his light sport
and experimental light sport aircraft.
CGS Aviation produces both single and two seat ultralight
and experimental aircraft and has produced well over 1500
aircraft to date. Currently in the two seat version CGS
Aviation offers both experimental amateur built,
experimental light sport, and Special Light Sport aircraft
powered by the Rotax 582 two stroke engine, The Rotax 912
series of engines, and had on display the first CGS Hawk
that will be certified with the HKS twin cylinder four
stroke 60 HP engine.
CGS also offers their aircraft in both tri-cycle gear, as a
taildragger and also have a float plane version. (In the
experimental amateurbuilt category the builder can use any
engine he wants, he is limited in the other categories).
By the time you read this the Special Light Sport
Aircraft (SLSA) Hawk that Danny had on display at Sun N Fun
will be in the hands of it's new owners who will be
operating a flight training school using a CGS Hawk in
Arkansas. CFIs Glen Suffern and Bob Smith of Dream Air
Adventure, LLC in Lonoke, Arkansas, are setting up shop to
conduct flight training with the new CGS Hawk SLSA powered
by the HKS 700E. Bob and Glen will also be offering flight
training for anyone wanting to learn to fly in a light plane
or who are transitioning to a Hawk.
Danny indicates that the price of a fully built, ready to
fly, turn key SLSA CGS Hawk equipped with the HKS 60 HP four
stroke engine comes in at less than $50,000.
