Kitplanes Looks at the Groppo Trail

0

Well, it’s not entirely new to Oshkosh, but the Italian company Groppo is launching a new marketing effort for its two-seat tandem Groppo Trail at an eye-catching price.  The Trail will be available as an E-LSA, an LSA, and an amateur-built kit, according to Steve Bassinger, who’s representing Groppo in the U.S.  Think of it as an Italian Cub, and you’ll be pretty close.

Kitplanes editor Paul Dye checked out the Trail, flew it briefly before the show, and shot this video for AVweb’s AirVenture coverage.
