Newest Tecnam LSA, the Astore, Features Levil “Six-Pack”

The Levil AHRS G-mini is, for the first time, now listed on the avionics callout of an LSA aircraft. The newest TECNAM aircraft, the head-turning Astore, has an iPad mini as standard equipment with the option to have the Levil Aviation G-mini – AW providing the "six pack" information wirelessly to the iPad’s display.

The Levil AHRS solves the problem of instability issues often found when using the internal gyros of the iPad to simulate attitude indication in the air. Levil instruments go through extensive calibration procedures and provide uncontested performance over a wide range of aircraft dynamics. “Sometimes people are skeptical about using an iPad in the cockpit because it is not a dedicated aircraft instrument. However, when used as a high-resolution display for a dedicated aircraft instrument like the G-mini, it becomes the most revolutionary and flexible system in aviation today. TECNAM realized this when testing our products and we are excited to work with them.” said Ananda Leon, Systems Engineer at Levil Technology.

The Levil G-mini has been catching on since its introduction at AirVenture 2011 and is popular in GA aircraft with traditional “steam gauges” which are using the iPad for situational awareness, all the way to experimental aircraft that use the Apple devices as a PFD.

Most applications used with iPad mini + LEVIL include “zero-drift” technology, and display most of the information found on a traditional EFIS, including pressure altitude, indicated airspeed and vertical speed from the pitot-static system. When combined with apps such as WingX Pro7 and AirNav Pro, the pilot has access to additional features such as 3D Synthetic Vision and Terrain Awareness. “The G-mini is a great addition to our avionics selection and the perfect match for such a sophisticated and beautiful aircraft,” said Fabio Russo, Chief of Product Development at TECNAM.

TECNAM’s new Astore will be showcased at AirVenture 2013 with Levil’s AHRS installed.

Article By:

Tecnam North America has launched the new P92 Echo Classic Light at a special introductory price through to the end of 2012.

The basic airplane includes:
  • Rotax 912UL 80 HP engine which can use standard grades of automotive fuel and is even more economical than the already frugal 100HP Rotax.
  • All metal construction for structural components.
  • Special light weight seats that are fully adjustable in flight Steerable nose gear with center handbrake.
  • Single fuel tank holding 11.9 gallons (second tank optional).
  • All required day VFR instrumentation for flight outside of controlled airspace.
  • MTOW 1102 lbs; Standard useful load 496lbs; 424lbs of payload.
  • Max Cruise 103 kts Endurance 3 hours (single tank).
  • Standard two year/200 hour manufacturer’s warranty.
  • Prices start at only $74,999 for a day VFR aircraft that can legally be flown away from Hanover County Airport at this price – no hidden charges or surprises. A limited number of upgrade packages will be available at competitive prices.
