The FMP Qualt 201 is a Czech ultralight and light-sport aircraft, designed and produced by FMP s.r.o. of Prague. The aircraft is supplied as a complete ready-to-fly-aircraft.[1][2]

Design and development[edit]

The Qualt 201 was derived from the earlier FMP Qualt 200, which it replaced in production. The 201 was designed to comply with the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale microlight rules and US light-sport aircraft rules. It features a cantilever low-wing, a two-seats-in-side-by-side configuration enclosed open cockpit under a bubble canopy, fixed conventional landing gear, a T-tail and a single engine in tractor configuration.[1][2]

The aircraft is made from composites. Its 9.2 m (30.2 ft) span wing has an area of 10.5 m2 (113 sq ft) and mounts split-style flaps. Standard engines available are the 64 hp (48 kW) Rotax 582 two-stroke, the 80 hp (60 kW) Rotax 912UL, the 100 hp (75 kW) Rotax 912ULS and the 85 hp (63 kW) Jabiru 2200 four-stroke powerplants.[1][2]
