World Aircraft Company Introduces Vision LSA

World Aircraft Company (WAC) formally introduced its new Vision this spring at Sun and Fun in Florida.

"We designed an airplane called Sentinel for surveillance and law enforcement with a huge cabin, incredible visibility and STOL capability," said WAC President Eric Giles. "We then realized that such an airplane would also be desirable to GA pilots. We now manufacture a civilian version appropriately called Vision.”

Vision is built on the company's Spirit airframe, which debuted at Oshkosh last year. The instrument panel has been reduced in size, and glass runs down the sides of the cabin so pilots can look both forward and down. Doors have been enlarged by 14 inches with full glass, and even more glass was added to the roof panel.  Baggage compartment windows are wrapped around the airframe for more rearward and downward visibility.

The Vision kit is available for $34,495; a painted version is $42,295.

  1. It's funny how planes painted in American flag colors are usually made offshore, in this case Colombia, South America 🙂

  2. You are half wrong. The airframe is constructed in columbia. It comes to paris TN in a crate where local USA men and women have to fix everything they messed up. The red white and blue was shot in WACs own car size paintbooth by a local that used to work in a paris tn body shop. The interrior is also local, only the seat shell is imported. The panel is hand built in paris tn because columbias looked lime garbage. The whole aircraft is finished in paris tn. Its also certified as an lsa there as well. The once assembled there whole aircraft there under the name "skykits" but those airframes were ugly, so the ownerhooked up with a columbian engineer and there ya go.
