The SportStar RTC proven design and great operation economy are attractive also for companies running aircraft renting business.

Owner of ACR company Denis Loeber said: “The SportStar RTC is a modern certified two-seater aircraft, fully adapted for airclubs. With a very high payload in its category - more than 6 hours endurance - the best dual glass cockpit G3XT avionic equipment – a steerable nose gear -18 kts crosswind certified – the cockpit space and panoramic view – and easy and cheap maintenance are some of the benefits which convinced me to choose this plane. By end of this year ACR fleet will reach 10 000 hours of flights in just 3 years and this is the proof that this aircraft is a proven economical and technical solution for intensive usage in air clubs. Ice on the cake: this plane is certified in the A class level in the Calipso French noise certification which places the SportStar RTC among the aircraft with the best low noise level in its category”.
