EVEKTOR supplies SportStar also to aviation academies that provide training for airline pilots. Flight academy “Aviation Career Center” based in Maribor, Slovenia operates a fleet of 3 SportStar aircraft.
“Aviation Career Center” based in Maribor, Slovenia operates a fleet of 3 SportStar aircraft. “Aviation Career Center has made a thorough analysis of available training aircraft on the market,” said Sandi Knez, Accountable Manager & Senior Partner in Aviation Career Center and the former Director of Civil Aviation Authority in Slovenia. “With respect to intensive use of the aircraft in our flight academy and request for the design with the proven operation reliability, outstanding flight characteristics, easy maintenance, and low operating costs the academy has selected among all the trainers on the market the EVEKTOR SportStar RTC. In the Zero, to ATPL course the SportStar RTC fills the phases focused on PPL and Night Rating training, CPL single engine training, and Solo (PIC) Time Building“.
Low operating costs, flight schools proved reliability, and modern design makes the aircraft attractive also for organizations running aircraft renting businesses. Owner of the company “ACR Aviation” in France, operating a fleet of 10 SportStar, Denis Loeber said: “The SportStar RTC is a modern certified two-seater aircraft, fully adapted for air clubs. With a very high payload in its category, more than 6 hours of endurance, the best dual glass cockpit G3XT avionic equipment, 18 kts crosswind certified, the cockpit space and panoramic view, and easy and cheap maintenance are some of the benefits which convinced me to choose this plane. This aircraft is a proven economical and technical solution for intensive usage in air clubs. Ice on the cake: this plane is certified in the A-Class level in the Calypso French noise certification which places the SportStar RTC among the aircraft with the best low noise level in its category”.
