Design and development[edit]

The aircraft was designed to comply with the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale microlight rules. It features a cantilever low-wing, a two-seats-in-side-by-side configuration enclosed cockpit under a bubble canopy with gull-winged doors, fixed, or optionally retractable, tricycle landing gear and a single engine in tractor configuration.[1]

The aircraft is made from composites. Its 8.0 m (26.2 ft) span wing employs flaps. The standard engine available is 100 hp (75 kW) Rotax 912ULS four-stroke powerplant. The base model is the Voyager Fly, with the Voyager Club and the Voyager Style as models with options included as standard equipment.[1]

A light-sport aircraft category version is planned for the United States market.[1]
