The AeroAndina MXP-150 Kimbaya is a Colombian light-sport aircraft that was designed and produced by AeroAndina of Cali.[1]

Design and development[edit]

The aircraft was designed to comply with the US light-sport aircraft rules although it was never certified in that category. It features a strut-braced high-wing, a two-seats-in-side-by-side configuration enclosed cockpit, tricycle landing gear and a single engine in tractor configuration.[1][3]

The aircraft is made from aluminum sheet. Its 10.0 m (32.8 ft) span wing is supported by V-struts and jury struts. Standard engines available were the 100 hp (75 kW) Rotax 912ULS four-stroke and a 125 hp (93 kW) Continental Motors, Inc. four-stroke powerplant.[1]
