The aircraft won the Light Aircraft Association's design competition in 2007. First flown on 24 October 2013, with the first public flight-test and demonstration on 30 October 2013. Initially the aircraft will be supplied as a complete ready-to-fly-aircraft.
Design and development
The aircraft was designed to comply with the United Kingdom Single Seat De-Regulated microlight class, as well as to fit the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale microlight rules. The aircraft cruise speed is planned to be modified for US light-sport aircraft rules. It features a cantilever mid-wing, a canard foreplane, a single-seat enclosed cockpit, fixed tricycle landing gear and a single Rotron e-Go engine in pusher configuration.
The aircraft is made from a combination of carbon fibre and foam. Its 8 m (26.2 ft) span wing has an area of 11.5 m2 (124 sq ft). The standard engine will be a 30 hp (22 kW) rotary engine, which is expected to give a cruise speed of Template:100 knots/115 mph on 3.5 litres (0.77 imp gal; 0.92 US gal) per 100 km (62 mi).
