Welcome, Super Petrel USA Inc!
In 2002, using much improved technology, building materials and production processes along with the Rotax 912 engine, Scoda Aeronautica produced the first Petrel aircraft. It was the test bed aircraft viewed by the FAA for approval as Special Light Sport or S-LSA. Initially the Super Petrel LS aircraft sales were based at Spruce Creek airport near Dayton Beach. In early 2016, the base of operations moved to their current 6,000 sq. ft. hangar at the Ormond Beach, Florida, airport (KOMN).
In January of 2024, they will receive the first two production Super Petrel XP aircraft. Rodrigo Scoda and his team from the Scoda Aeronautica factory will arrive in early February to instruct the Super Petrel USA team on the new aircraft reassembly process. Transition flight training and systems ground school will be provided to the Super Petrel USA staff and members of the Super Petrel Fight Instructor Association (SPFIA).
Roger E Helton is the President of Super Petrel USA, Inc. at the Ormond Beach, Florida, facility. He began his Super Petrel LS adventure in December of 2016, just a month after earning his Seaplane Pilot rating at Jack Brown’s.
