Kitfox STi 915 iS

Talk about airplanes! At last count, there are 39 (and growing) FAA certificated S-LSA (special light sport aircraft). These are factory-built ready to fly airplanes. If you can't afford a factory-built LSA, consider buying an E-LSA kit (experimental LSA - up to 99% complete).

Kitfox STi 915 iS

Hey y’all, pretty sweet footage of the 915 iS powered Kitfox STi. IMHO, one of the most potent combinations of engine and airframe in all of general aviation.

I was able to spend a few days at Oshkosh this year and inquire more about the 915 iS. It sounds like things are going well and there are four manufactures that I know of who are using serial production versions.

The engine is good for 145-147 HP, which is nice to know even though they have it certified at 141 HP max. Kitfox was able to get to 17,990ft coming to the show and the Aquila which was used by Rotax as their man test bed reached 32,000ft. Very impressive indeed!
