LISA Airplanes at Oshkosh: Immerse Yourself Onboard the AKOYA

This is the third Summer that LISA Airplanes crosses the Atlantic to take part in the EAA Airventure fair in Oshkosh (Wisconsin, USA).This important event brings more than 500 000 aviation enthusiasts (the world's biggest aviation celebration) and it's a unique occasion for the French company to present in detail the AKOYA, their two-seat amphibian aircraft.

This upscale two-seat aircraft, designed with great refinement, has a unique innovation with the ability to maneuver not only on ground and snow, but also on water thanks to the Seafoils. Meanwhile the aircraft is undergoing flight test campaign at LISA's headquarters and entering completion phase, part of the team is in Oshkosh to show the latest results of endurance flights which confirm the outstanding performances of this amphibious aircraft.

As a visitor, it will be possible to live a flight onboard the AKOYA thanks to a 45mn film. Shot with 3 cameras (including one inside the cockpit), the experience becomes suddenly reality and it almost feels like flying. (See attached pictures). To provide one of the most realistic and authentic immersive experience, the film was shot on June 30th above Lac du Bourget (Savoie, France).

To meet LISA Airplanes team and catch a glimpse of the AKOYA: visit booth ndegree466 in the "Main Aircraft Display", until Sunday, August 3rd 2014.
