SEAREY ATD UPDATE: AirVenture 2017

Oshkosh (WI), 07/24/2017 – RS Aerotech, Ltd. will show the Searey Advanced Technology Demonstrator (Searey ATD) with the new Rotax 915 iS engine at the Rotax booth during Airventure 2017. The Searey amphibious land/seaplane, produced as an S-LSA by Progressive Aerodyne of Tavares (FL) is used for long time flight testing of the Rotax 9 series iS engines, MT propellers and future-oriented electronic aircraft systems designed by RS Aerotech. The modified Searey ATD has been equipped with a single lever constant speed propeller control system (SLC), and a CANaerospace-based flight data acquisition and recording system.

The Searey ATD automatically transmits engine and flight data via any 2G/3G/4G network worldwide. This data is continuously stored on a remote computer server to generate an engine health monitoring data base, thereby introducing the LSA world to the technology of large transport aircraft. This technology will be available for all Rotax 9 iS series engines soon.
