Fuel consumption is about 15 to 18l/h and the engine needs an oil change every 100 hours. Local prices and fees will however determine the overall operational cost.

Most of the service can be done by the owner, but for major overhauls a licenced mechanic needs to be involved.

When can I preorder my Aurora LSA?

Just send us an email. You can reach us at: sales@atolaviation.com

Where can I preorder, or get more information about the plane? 

Our first planes are planned to roll off the assembly line in the autumn of 2022.

After I have preordered my Aurora, how long will I need to wait for it to be delivered? 

Because it is a plane with predicatable and stable characteristics - on water as well as in the air, which makes it a great training plane. The Aurora also has a very favourable combination of low operating costs, payload, range and versatility of usage (easy access through front fuselage and folding wings ). It also has smaller carbon footprint (wood material and low fuel consumption ) to name a few.

Why should I buy an Aurora LSA from Atol Aviation?

Orders

Our Aurora is mainly build out of wood; specifically spruce and birch.

What is the plane's main building material?

To quote the LAA (Light Aircraft Association): "It is stronger for its weight than any other material except certain alloy steels". (LAA, 'AIRCRAFT WOOD INFORMATION', TL 1.14 Issue 2 1 Jan 2008). Wood does not corrode. Wooden structure stands impacts well and is easy to repair. Wood has been used in aviation since its inception and with Atol since 1988 and is still today a good choice.

Is wood a good construction material for planes?

Construction & build material

You can be flying for up to 6 hours with our Aurora.

What is the Aurora LSA's endurance? 

We designed the plane to be able to cope with 275kg of payload

What is the Aurora's cruise speed and its fuel consumption when cruising? Estimated cruise speed is 164 km/h  (88,5 knts) and consumption depends on weight and speed but varies between 14-18 l/h

How much payload can Atol Aviation's LSA handle?

Performance

Yes, we are currently working with EASA (European Union Aviation Safety Agency) to obtain an LSA certification, after wich we will apply for an FAA certification.

Will the Aurora LSA be certified?
