The AKOYA is classed in the LSA (Light Sport Aircraft) category, established in the USA in 2005 and recently adopted in Europe. This category lies between ultralight aircraft and classic certified aircraft. The LSA regulations are recognized or are being adopted, in most of the world. More flexible than certified aviation, the LSA provides pilots with freedom and comfort, as they can benefit from many technological innovations.
Although it is “classed” in this category, the AKOYA is really in a special category of its own—justified by its versatility, performances, comfort, and passive safety features, which are far more exacting than other aircraft in the LSA category—and therefore constitutes an entirely new and high-end lightweight LSA category.
Close collaboration between the technical office and the Design Studio has produced an aircraft that combines aesthetic beauty and functionality in a unique, simple, intuitive, and ergonomic control panel. The slim control panel, a perfect extension of the center armrest, houses most of the instruments and buttons, each of which has been selected and positioned to simplify flight operations. The flight controls are a natural extension of the pilot’s hands and enhance the sense of comfort during the flight. The overall simplicity of the cockpit means that you can commence your flight confidently and enjoy observing the landscapes below.
The AKOYA is fitted with the latest generation, clear, reliable, and intuitive instruments.
Its central instrument panel, the “glass cockpit,” contains all the flight parameters and the engine information on an optimized interface that is very easy to use.
