GRT Avionics is sponsoring the FLS Microjet, a BD-5J variant billed as the world’s smallest jet.

Justin Lewis, the FLS Microjet builder and pilot, says he chose the two-screen GRT Horizon system because of its small size, light weight, precision, and reliability.

“We are thrilled to have GRT as a sponsor for the 2013 season,” said Lewis, an Air National Guard A-10 pilot. “With GRT’s support, the FLS Microjet will continue traveling to air shows across the country.”

GRT Avionics and its sister firm Grand Rapids Technologies have been leaders in experimental flight and engine displays for more than 20 years.
