Borey Amphib Receives TC Acceptance Letter
AeroVolga, the manufacturer of the Borey Amphibious Aircraft received Transport Canada’s Letter Of Acceptance in January 2019, for the Borey Model A, as Advanced Ultra-Light Aeroplane (AULA). This is the first amphibious AULA in Canada and will certainly provide an advantage to flight schools. Students will be able to acquire their Ultra-Light Pilot permit on land and get checked out as a seaplane pilot.
AeroVolga’s team of engineers worked long and hard to optimize weight and simplicity while maximizing strength and serviceability for the Canadian AULA market. AeroVolga Scientific Production Union (SPU) is a Russian Limited Liability Company founded in 2002. The first aircraft manufactured, the LA-8 twin engine eight-seat amphibious aircraft, made its inaugural flight in 2004. The company received the Quality System Certificate ISO 9001: 2008 (GOST ISO 9001-2011) in relation to the design, production, operation of aircraft, helicopters and other aircraft.
Aero Volga’s manufacturing complex has a total area of nearly 135 Acres, including an airport with a concrete and grass runway, industrial manufacturing facilities and auxiliary buildings spanning 27.000 square feet. The manufacturer currently employs approximately 100 skilled professionals throughout several divisions: design office, production (work-shops), maintenance and continued airworthiness. The company “AeroVolga” works in close international cooperation with foreign partners, in particular, with the Swiss company Aeronautique Design & Service Bureau. The Borey was part of the famous Circumpolar Flight Excursion last year, which we featured in various articles.
