BASIC DESIGN

The SportCruiser is a double-seat, all-metal aircraft, arranged as a low-wing mono-plane with cantilevered wings and conventional empennage.

WING

The wing is a cantilever wing designed in two pieces. Each wing is attached by 6 shear bolts to the wing centre section. A fuel tank is located in each wing with a capacity of 57 litres. A unique storage compartment is also located in each wing with a capacity of 10kg per compartment. The wing tip is constructed from carbon-glass laminate. The wing is equipped with slotted flaps and ailerons. The right aileron is fitted with electrical trim.

TAILPLANE

The tailplane is formed by a stabilizer and elevator. The elevator is full balanced by horn balance and is equipped with a trim tab controlled by electrical servo.

FUSELAGE

The fuselage is designed as a conventional metal semi-monocoque structure. The cockpit frame and cover frame are made from a carbon glass fibre construction. The undercarriage is attached directly to the channel on the fuselage base.

POWER SUPPLY

The aircraft is powered by 12V electrical power.

COCKPIT

The SportCruiser boasts by far the most spacious and ergonomic cockpit in its class and a level of comfort and refinement that is second to none. The first-class choice of fabric and leather upholstery, advanced on-board climate control and defogging systems together with the easy control and high endurance of the aircraft provide for the SportCruiser being widely recognized as also a true cross-country aircraft.

With the unique baggage lockers integrated into both wing sections together with the spacious baggage compartment located in the rear of the cockpit, the SportCruiser will always guarantee optimum flexibility for that weekend away. Each individual wing locker is capable of accommodating up to 10kg of luggage, providing the possibility to transport up to a total of 38kg of luggage depending on available useful load.
