Retrofitting a FES system to older LS8 versions is possible now!
Since the release of our LS8-e neo prototype people ask us whether it is possible to retrofit a FES to older LS8, or not. We have to mention that only a small number of aircraft can be retrofitted. The glider needs to be equipped with a reinforced spar and an engine bay during production. But at least retrofitting these gliders is possible!
The following serial numbers can be equipped with a FES system:
8400 / 8416-8419 / 8423 / 8425 / 8426 / 8432 – 8436 / 8444 / 8448 / 8449 / 8451 / 8455-8460 / 8464 / 8466 / 8469 / 8470-8474 / 8476 / 8478 / 8499 / 8504 / 8507 / 8509-8515 / 8517-8524 / 8526-8531 / 8533
In case you own one of the serial numbers above and are interested in a retrofit you may contact our service and maintenance department via Dirk Ströbl or Sebastian Tschorn. They are looking forward to your inquiry and will supply all necessary information to you.
