++Stemme USA at Sun ‘n Fun++New President++World Champion Luca Bertossio++Press Meeting at April 1++
From April 1-6 Stemme USA will exhibit at the 2014 Sun ‘n Fun in Lakeland, Florida. Stemme will start the exhibition with a press meeting at their booth M-12 on April 1, 1 pm, with special appearance of Luca Bertossio, the 24 years old World Glider Aerobatic Champion from Italy. Also Mark Stevenson will introduce himself as the new president of the US subsidiary of the German premium sports aircraft manufacturer and give an outlook about his future plans concerning the company positioning in the North America. Furthermore, visitors to the Stemme booth M-12 can experience a Stemme Peak Performer S10, a high performance aircraft manufactured in Germany.
At the beginning of January Mark Stevenson has taken the position of President of Stemme USA. With a history of success at companies like Embraer Executive Jets, Piaggio America and Cessna Aircraft he is well-experienced in the aviation sector. Combined with his abilities in sales and marketing Mark Stevenson will promote Stemme in the USA as a class of its own: “My main aim for 2014 is to demonstrate the uniqueness and excellence of Stemme premium sports aircraft as a result of German engineering”.
With a wing span of 75ft the Stemme Peak Performer S10 has a glide ratio of up to 50. Combined with its powerful mid-engine ROTAX 914 the pilot enjoys complete independence, because no winch or tow-plane is needed. A cruise speed of up to 140 kt allows long distance travelling. The patented retractable propeller converts the Stemme S10 in just four seconds from a motorized plane to a high performance glider and vice versa. The propeller blades disappear completely into the propeller dome. Furthermore, a retractable undercarriage optimizes the aerodynamic qualities. In conclusion the Stemme Peak Performer S10 is a class of its own, an exclusive aircraft for ambitious pilots who want to have both: high-performance soaring as well as ambitious touring qualities.
With Luca Bertossio Stemme has a new testimonial for its unique sports aircraft. At the age of eleven Luca decided to become a pilot, because his biggest wish was to spend more time with his father who had to do a lot of business travelling. Luca spent a lot of time flying many different airplanes before he made his glider license just a few years ago and the real story began. Today the 24 year old pilot from Italy is 5 time National Champion in Gliding Aerobatic, Vice World Champion in WAGAC 2011 and World Champion in WAGAC 2012 with 4 FAI Gold Medals. His passion for flying and especially gliding and his high performance presentations match perfectly with the aspiration of Stemme. At the Sun ‘n Fun he will be available for personal talks about his fascination for high performance gliding with the Stemme Peak Performer S10.
