Hansen Air Group is pleased to announce the addition of another fine aircraft to its fleet of versatile, high quality, high value and fun Light Sport Aircraft. The FK9 MkIV will join the FA04 Peregrine and Sky Arrow 600 Sport on the flight line at our facility in Kennesaw, Georgia. With this newest member, the group gives customers choices to fit the requirements of almost any pilot.

The FK9 MkIV is built by B&F Technik Vertriebs GmbH of Germany. Its high wing, side-by-side seating will appeal to those looking for a modern composite alternative to the traditional trainers of the past. A 550 pound useful load and economical Rotax 80 or 100Hp engine combined with its excellent handling qualities make it a natural for flight schools. For enthusiasts, its landing gear choices include tricyle, tail wheel, or floats. Other options include folding wings, glider towing kit and adaptive hand controls.

Also from Germany comes the FA04 Peregrine by Flaemingair GmbH. A sleek composite low wing with a 44 inch wide cockpit, 26 gallons of fuel and 115 knot cruise speed, the FA04 is a great traveling airplane. Its roomy baggage area and 650+ nm range are perfect for those weekend getaways. Yet, it still has excellent slow speed handling for short fields. It is available in tricycle or tail wheel configuration, with options that include a glider towing kit and full glass panel.

The Sky Arrow 600 Sport by 3 I of Italy is an aircraft that draws crowds wherever it goes. The high wing and pusher engine combine with the large canopy to give both the front and aft seat pilots unsurpassed visibility. Governments around the globe use versions of the Sky Arrow for patrol, reconnaissance and research. Its rugged composite airframe, forgiving flight characteristics and adaptive hand controls make it a great trainer too. It also earns it keep with options for atmospheric research packages and glider towing.

Hansen Air Group offers the Brightflite line of Multi-Function displays from Stauff Systec GmbH of Germany. Available in single or dual housings, each unit includes a touch screen display with a moving map based on sectional charts and integrated GPS. Engine monitoring is also available. The ultra bright screen is easily read even in direct sunlight. For rescue and law enforcement professionals, options include Vector street mapping overlays, NVG compatibility, multi aircraft mission control functions and display of IR or low light camera feed.
