Blue Skies

Light Sport Aircraft

STANDARD EQUIPMENT FOR DAY VFR

Our Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) is based on the 1960-vintage Luscombe 8F Silvaire that has a long track record as a certified plane.

Our Entry level VFR Day Model 8, Blue Skies, is equipped for daylight VFR operations in congested or controlled airspace that mandates 2-way radios, transponder, and ADS-B.  Blue Skies includes the optional package with many popular features that a VFR day pilot may wish to have available: Standard equipment includes two 12.5 gallon fuel tanks, dual pilot controls, avionics master switch and essential bus, single Trig TY91 VHF comm, TT22 Mode S transponder with ADS-B, day time LED vertical fin beacon and wing strobe lights, whiskey compass, clock, oil pressure and oil temperature gauges, annunciator panel, and many others. Blue Skies is pre-wired for lights in the wing, fuselage and empennage.  Along with the standard 30 amp alternator, Blue Skies can easily be upgraded to Night VFR in the future, and power ports are provided to service portable equipment. The flat instrument panel behind the classical instrument panel harkens back to the 1941 Model 8B but conceals modern, light weight and reliable instruments and avionics.
