TAILORED DESIGN

The airframe is completely made of composite material which excels in its specific strength and excellent fatigue properties. The entire aircraft can be broken down into individual units, i. e., both halves of the wing and tail surfaces, including stabilizers, can be separated from the fuselage to ease aircraft transport.
The aerodynamic design of the wing gives the aircraft appropriate fall characteristics. The separation of air flow in the critical angle of slope happens at the root of the wing. This ensures good handling of the machine until it drops and symmetrically stalls. This allows for the aircraft’s smooth and agile handling.
The tail section employs a true and tested traditional design. The internal structure of the stabilizers is similar to the construction of the wings. Therefore the tail section can be completely removed from the hull, with the exception of the keel, which is its integral part.

A refined interior

Performance

Engine

The VL3 is available with two different engines: the Rotax 912 and the Rotax 914. The Rotax 912 represents is known for its reliability and efficiency, making it ideal for flying long distances. The Rotax 914 is for those pilots who are seeking a boost in performance(30 km/h (16 kts) @ FL 90), with more power and more uniform performance at different altitudes.

You can install an additional electric fuel pump, an airbox, fire protection of the fuel and oil hoses or an auxiliary generator.

An army of sensors will be there for your safety. e.g. fuel pressure, fuel flow, oil pressure, oil temperature, CHT, EGT, MAP.

Propeller

You can choose between a fixed or variable pitch propeller. The propeller is adjustable in-flight to enhance your climb and cruise performance. Its adjustability will also shorten your take-off distance.

For best results install the Rotax 914 ULS3, hydraulic governor and Woocomp KW20 hydraulic propeller.
