Stemme Twin Voyager S12 at AirVenture in Oshkosh FAA certification to be finalized next week
Twin Voyager S12
Stemme USA presented its flagship Twin Voyager S12 to pilots around the world on EAA Air Venture last year. The response from the market was extremely positive and higher than expected – and finally led to additional orders in 2016/2017 in hand.
Based on the type certification of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in March 2016, the type certification by the FAA (US Federal Aviation Administration) had been pursued by the German engineers intensively. Currently, the certification process has already been closed by the FAA, it's just the missing final stamp from the German authority LBA, which shall be provided this coming week.
With its 25 m (82 ft.) wingspan this high-performance glider achieves a glide ratio of up to 53. The unique folding propeller that disappears completely into the dome during glide mode gives the aircraft excellent aerodynamics, while the powerful ROTAX 914 F2/S1 Turbo engine gives pilots uncompromising cruise performance.
To fulfil different requirements and preferences among pilots Stemme decided to develop the S12 even further: Customers who preferably use the aircraft for touring might choose the new 22.1 m (72.5 ft.) wing. This reduced wingspan results in a faster rollrate and higher cruise speed. Another innovation in this aircraft category is the full GARMIN Glasscockpit panel, including certified autopilot. This configuration can also be seen at the show.
Paul Masschelein, CEO, Stemme AG: “Even though pilots of the S12 are indulged by the best of two worlds – pure adventure of gliding and powerful touring – they are always striving for better performance, more convenient handling and excellent touring capabilities. With our latest developments around the S12 we are happy to address these preferences."
