New AULA Flying Boat Amphibian
AeroVolga aircraft manufacturer of the Borey Amphibious Aircraft received Transport Canada’s letter of acceptance in January 2019, for the Borey model A, as Advanced Ultra-Light Aeroplane (AULA).
This is the first amphibious in the new millennium as AULA in Canada and will certainly provide an advantage to Flight schools. Students will be able to acquire their Ultra-Light Pilot permit on land and get checked out as a seaplane pilot.
AeroVolga’s team of engineers worked long and hard to optimize weight and simplicity while maximizing strength and serviceability for the Canadian AULA market.

Currently with a staff of approximately 100 skilled professionals throughout several divisions: design office, production (work-shops), maintenance and continued airworthiness.
Leveraging Aero Volga’s extensive experience and manufacturing capability, the design of a two-seat amphibious aircraft was initiated and in 2016 the Borey’s first flight was celebrated, sales efforts took place in 2017 and the first deliveries to customers in Summer 2018 by 4 aircraft.
