We Are Bringing the Finest European Aircraft to the US Market
Choose the aircraft you want to learn more about:
Vl3 Aircraft by JMB Aircraft
VL3 was the first aircraft we brought to the USA. It's the fastest and, in our opinion, the nicest one. It has crazy performance numbers like cruise speed 205 ktas, stall speed 38 kts. But the best thing about VL3 is not the numbers. It's so much fun to fly this aircraft; you wouldn't want to fly anything else after you try.
FX1 Aircraft by Innovaviation
We call this aircraft an Italian miracle. They figured out how to solve one of the most annoying things pilots deal with: The cockpit noise! It maybe not seem like a big deal to you right now, but once you try flying the FX1, you don’t want to go back.
L600 Aircraft by Aeropilot
The L600 is the best value deal we have found. As you can see, it is heavily inspired by Cessna 182. It took the best parts of it, like good flying characteristics, and packaged it into a smaller and modern package. The result is an affordable, reliable, and easy to fly LSA.
Hi, my name is Adam Coubal. The founder of Alion Aviation.
Here is the story of our company, in case you like to know more about us.
I've been flying airplanes my whole life. When I finally decided to buy my own, I wasn't willing to make compromises.
I've spent more than 2 years researching and demo testing everything the US and European markets had to offer...
Some airplanes were better, some worse, but the VL3 exceeded all the competition in every critical aspect. It was love at first flight.
The only problem was, I had to figure out how to register this airplane in the US.
After many meetings, I found a guy who helped me to get my dream airplane to the US.
Once the aircraft was here, I took a day off. I took off in my plane and headed to the Hollywood hills. And I tell you this, those who say money can not buy happiness have not flown this aircraft yet.
Then something unexpected happened. Some of my pilot friends whom I let fly the aircraft wanted to buy their own. After just half an hour of flight, they begged me to help them import the VL3 from Europe.
That made me think. If I'm so happy with the airplane, my friends love it, and there is no distributor in the US market, it's my moral duty (and a great business opportunity) to let more people feel the joy of flying this incredible aircraft.
As we already became friends, I convinced JMB Aircraft to make Alion Aviation Corp. the exclusive distributor of the VL3 aircraft for the US market.
And that's how it all started…
Since then, we have added the Italian FX1 Aircraft from Innovaviation. This aircraft has a unique design, exceptional view from the cockpit (almost 360 degrees), and the quietest cockpit I've ever flown in an LSA-sized airplane.
The last addition to our product line is the Czech L600 from Aeropilot. This versatile airplane is an excellent budget option with great value and a classic look. Both FX1 and L600 can come on floats.
I've managed to get on board some very talented people I'm proud to work with. Our Alion Aviation team is constantly growing, and so do our fleet and family of happy clients. Our mission is to bring the best European ultralight aircraft to the US, so everyone can enjoy the thrill of flying them.
Have a clear sky!
