GENESIS...according to Webster, the origin, or coming into being. An appropriate name for a design as innovative and original as the flagship of the SlipStream pusher line of aircraft kits. Originally designed and prototyped in 1992, the GENESIS has been hailed by the industry for its performance, flight characteristics and sexy styling.
The GENESIS is the answer for the pilot who wants a modern, two-place, roomy, side-by-side aircraft for a price below that of a 30-year old Cessna. Available with your choice of dual yoke controls or center stick, the GENESIS can be configured to satisfy your exacting requirements. Equipped with the standard Rotax 582, and in solo configuration, take-off roll is a mere 100 feet, with a 250 foot landing roll and a climb rate of 1,000 fpm. The GENESIS base price also includes dual 10-gallon wing tanks to provide for four hours of cross-country endurance.
Thinking about a floatplane? Try on a pair of the all new Shark Series amphibious floats and you've opened the door to unbelievable adventure. Computer designed to reduce drag and to provide for rapid hydroplaning, the Shark Series floats are built to withstand impacts in excess of 3,000 lbs. per square inch and are rated for up to 1,600 lbs. Coupled with the GENESIS and any of the larger Rotax engines, this floatplane combination will take you to destinations others only dream about.
Worried about useful load? Don't be! With an average empty weight of 565 lbs., the GENESIS equipped with the standard Rotax 582 has a useful load of 635 lbs. Purchase any of the larger optional powerplants, and the gross weight capability increases to 1400 lbs., providing for an even larger useful load. Still not enough? The all new HD option is the answer, with a beefed up airframe capable of safely carrying up to 1600 lbs. and an unbelievable useful load envelope of over 800 lbs.! We have tested and proven all of our offered engine options, so your choice is limited only by your performance requirements and available budget.
In terms of build time the GENESIS typically will take about 400 hours to complete, and that's about as low as you'll find for a real enclosed cabin aircraft. All of the welding and fabrication is done before the kits leave our plant, and our manuals are clearly written with easy step by step instructions, and numerous photos, illustrations and CAD drawings, so even a novice builder can be up and flying in no time.
The GENESIS airframe lists for $11,073*, and includes all of the flight surfaces, fuselage, fiberglass enclosure, landing gear, wheels and tires, control system and doors. Among the many options we offer are custom hydraulic brakes, cabin heating, floats, wheel pants, strut fairings, complete instruments packages, and finishing systems (we are a Randolph Products distributor). As a basis of comparison, a complete Genesis aircraft, ready to fly, typically runs from $21,000 to $32,000, depending on your powerplant and choice of options.
Whether you are seriously looking for the aircraft of your dreams, or just kicking tires, please phone, fax, or email us and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Why settle for a 30-year-old aircraft when you can have today's styling, performance, handling, and all around excitement at an affordable price?
