The ATOL is a 2-seat Hi-tech Amphibious LSA with Strong and Light Wood Composite Structure.

The all new ATOL 650 LSA is based on the original ATOL Amphibian’s structure which has been updated to today’s standards. The airframe has been lenghtened by one metre (3′ 4″) for better handling and increased Maximum Take-off Weight (MTOW), which for an ATOL classified as a Light Sport Aircraft is 650 kg (or 1430 lb.)

ATOL’s main structure is modern wood composite (birch with PVC foam in between) which is certainly one of it’s strengths. Pine, fabric and composites are also used in structures.

The two-seat ATOL has a conventional landing gear and the main gear retracts for flight and water operations. Special attention has been paid to aircraft’s safe operation and ATOL even reminds for proper landing gear position prior to landing.

The entire nose section, cockpit interior and engine cowling are redesigned from scratch. Pilot and passenger seats are pitched by 30 cm (12″) to give maximum shoulder space and optimum weight and balance control – there’s no need for separate balance weights. The rear hinged canopy rises with instrument panel so you can enter and exit without getting your feet wet on beaches.

New Rotax 912 iS engine was chosen for fuel efficiency and a multitude of choice in fuels (95 or 98 octane mogas with ethanol or 100LL), and the ATOL 650 LSA has an endurance of nine hours. The Rotax 912 iS is also a reliable engine with long service intervals (TBO, Time Before Overhaul.)

Service & Warranty

General maintenance

Due to its careful design, the ATOL requires only cleaning and daily inspection in normal operations. After each major overhaul warranty will be another 2000 hour or 10 years. In other words ATOL has unlimited warranty excluding normal wear and tear. For the engine and avionics just follow their manufacturers’ service instructions.

Your ATOL should be stored in relatively normal conditions in a hangar or ATOL Mobile Hangar. Automatic condition monitoring system with data logger and a modem will inform you and the factory should there be any service actions required.

The ATOL Service Program

Our service interval is every 100 hours or annually and major overhaul interval is every 2000 hours or 10 years.

Major overhaul is carried out by the distributor or ATOL factory where the aircraft is returned to original factory specifications. When normal service program and storage instructions are followed and ATOL’s automatic condition monitoring system sends regular condition reports to the factory ATOL has 2000 hour or 10 year warranty.
