Kitfox and Lycoming Team up on O-233-Powered S7 Super Sport

The Kitfox S7 Super Sport, now in flight and gathering test and performance data, features the new Lycoming 115-horsepower O-233 with a Champion electronic ignition system. Kitfox is one of the first kit aircraft manufacturers to fly the new O-233 powerplant.

"We did not want to release information until we were sure we were ready," said John McBean of Kitfox Aircraft. "We are excited to be one of the first flying with this new Lycoming technology, and we look forward to showing the Kitfox S7 Super Sport at Oshkosh."

During Oshkosh AirVenture, Kitfox will show the S7 Super Sport at the Lycoming display (the big red tents) at Booths 277 to 282. Kitfox Aircraft will be in the North Aircraft display at Booths 634 and 635.
