REMOS GXNXT – The Perfect Light Sport.
REMOS GXNXT or (GXnXES in USA) – Is one of the best Light Sport aircraft ever produced in the world. It is the most technically advanced and easy to fly Light sport aircraft which has all the bells and whistles that would make even an airline pilot envious. It has better flight performance than most other light sport aircraft and even some smaller Cessnas and Pipers.
The design is highly aerodynamic and ergonomic with a very light but strong airframe. The controls and instrumentation are well designed and advanced. The cockpit is wider than most Light Sport aircraft with better leg, head and shoulder space and is even bigger than a Cessna 152.
The Dynon and Garmin flight instruments and displays are perfectly located in the cockpit to provide you with the best display of the flight situation, navigation and airspace management, with weather uplink and traffic awareness. It is simple, easy and low cost to operate. The short Take off and landing makes it ideal to operate from your local grass strip or field. The wings can be folded back or readied for flight in less than 20 minutes. You can also have a BRS parachute for the entire airplane to increase safety.
The Rotax 912 ULS power planet has been carefully selected and designed to suit the Remos GX. The high RPM engine operates smoothly and efficiently with low operating costs. It is music to a pilots ears to listen to the hum of this well designed, “bullet proof” engine.
If you are looking for the best Light Sport,look no further, it is the Remos GXNXT, hands down!!

Stable, agile, maneuverable, simple and efficient
The REMOS GX with its short take off ( less than 300ft) and landing capabilities with high rate of climb features and highly responsive controls provides excellent agility and maneuverability. The majority of the aircraft material that makes up the airframe ie. fuselage, wing and tail is aviation grade carbon fiber. As a result the airframe, is very stiff, strong and light, and the exterior surfaces are remarkably smooth with premium finish. The airframe is so strong that it has G loading of +4 and -2 G’s. The aerodynamic design is a creation of engineering-art with high integrity and performance , giving it a 10:1 glide ratio.
The high thrust to weight ratio with the Rotax 912ULS engine allows rapid acceleration to cruise. It is is a delight to cruise in the REMOS GX at 120+ kts .The airplane is so stable at the same time maneuverable that even at top speeds it can be trimmed off to fly “hands off”, with no buffeting vibrations are oscillations.It has been designed to perfectly suit the needs of both novice and experience pilots. It is a pure joy to fly this aircraft. It has a 6.5 hour flight endurance and Range of approx 500 NM. All this at 3.5 Gal/hours fuel consumption!!! The Remos GX is the most spacious and comfortable Light sport available in the market.
Absolutely High-end Equipment
The Remos GX is equipped with the ROTAX 912ULS engine with 74 kW / 100 HP, along with the NEUFORM 3-blade composite propeller ,with plush and comfortable interiors, four point harness and easy-fold composite wings. The leather interior is designed with luxury taste and sporty design.
The avionics are top of the market, placed ideally for best cockpit display. It has the DYNON SkyView 7″ screen, combined with EFIS/EMS with transponder, the new 8,33 kHz Garmin radio, GMA240 intercom and Garmin 500 GPS are included in the standard configuration. We can further customize the aircraft and cockpit for your needs with dual screen display on a second SkyView 7″ screen in the right panel, NAV/COM, full audio-panel, marker antenna, bluetooth, high-end GPS Flymap, GARMIN 695/696 ,Auto-pilot, leather interior with premium decor options. With full panel options the NXT has an empty weight of 718 pounds and a useful load capability of 602 pounds or 470 pounds with full fuel, the best in the LSA world. The aerodynamic wheel pants are easy to remove for servicing the brakes and tyres.

The Remos GX; although relatively new to the American Market (2006), has been a leader in the light sport aircraft category for more then 10 years in the European Market. In the late 1980’s there was a necessity in Europe for a quieter and more economical alternative to the aircraft that were being used. With this necessity in place the engineers at Remos went to work. In 1997 Remos answered the call with the first line of Remos Aircraft; The Remos G3. The G3 served as the test bed from which would come the Remos GX. With all of the great qualities that the G3 offered along with a few improvements the GX developed into an aircraft that to this day is unrivaled in the light sport category.
Though the Remos GX conforms to the standards of the Light Sport Aircraft Category it is by no means any less of an aircraft than its bigger brothers. Everyone that flies the Remos GX comments on how robust of an aircraft it is. They also rate the Remos GX high on handling characteristics, performance capabilities, as well as overall ease of use.
It’s no wonder that more people choose the Remos GX over any other light sport aircraft when it comes time to buy. Below are the performance specifications for your convenience. However, seeing is believing! If you’re interested in the Remos GX and would like to see for yourself, just what this aircraft has to offer.

The aircraft is marketed in the United States as a Light Sport Aircraft, and as an ultralight in most of Europe. It is a high-wing design, mostly using engines from the Rotax 912 family. It was developed from the similar Remos Gemini Ultra. The Mirage has the same layout, landing gear and structure but has a span reduced by 1.00 m (3 ft 3 in), is 170 mm ( 6.7 in) longer and is 34 kg (75 lb) heavier. The Mirage also adds an elevator trim tab and electrical flap operation. The Gemini’s standard two-stroke 48 kW (64 hp) Rotax 582 engine was replaced in the Mirage by a 60 kW (80 hp) four-stroke Rotax 912UL.
The wings of the G3 Mirage have a constant chord centre section with straight tapered outer panels. The inboard sections carry electrically operated flaps. There is a single lift strut on each side, attached to the lower fuselage. Behind the cabin the fuselage is slender and carries a low set, straight tapered tailplane with horn balanced elevators. The fin and rudder are straight edged and sharply tapered, the latter horn balanced and ending at the top of the fuselage. There is a small underfin. The GX version introduced a long, integrated dorsal fin. The G3 Mirage has a tricycle undercarriage with cantilever legs mounted to the fuselage and with faired wheels. The Remos is somewhat unique among modern certificated/LSA aircraft in that it can be flown with the doors removed.
The prototype and most production Mirages have been powered by 80 hp or 100 hp variants of the Rotax 912 flat four engine. The Mirage RS/L version had a Jabiru 2200 and one aircraft (D-MPCJ) had a two cylinder, 72 hp Swiss Auto SAB 430 turbocharged car engine, which saved 30 kg (66 lb).
The G3 Mirage first flew on 20 September 1997 with the lower powered Rotax. The first production aircraft also used this engine but had some small horizontal control surface modifications plus the addition of a horn balance to the rudder.
The GX has been the current production model since 2006 and features folding wings and monocoque carbon fiber construction. Its wing has a different airfoil than the G3, improving roll rate and giving better penetration of turbulence. The GX is fitted with either a Junkers or BRS ballistic parachute recovery system. The GX2009 was introduced at the Sebring Expo. There were improvements to the instrument panel and interior and a new Chromoly steel tube landing gear, which replaced the earlier composite undercarriage, is retrofittable to older models.
