Rotax 912 UL engine
One of the the finest flexwing microlight on the market. When you step into the cockpit of an XT you will immediately notice how comfortable it is. In flight the XT with the Streak or Cruze wing has precise and predictable handling. The engineered finish obvious.
| The XT can be set up easily by one person. The mast
folds independently of the motor. A gas strut is used to help lift
the wing onto the trike base and requires little effort.
High quality Fournales oleopneumatic rear shock absorbers are used on the rear. On the front again high quality double action adjustable shock absorbers. The XT now comes standard with carby heating.
|The wide rear 6 inch wheels remain a feature as with our other models but the wheel pants/spats have been redesigned and include an integrated aerodynamic fin. The XT-912 comes standard with the new Streak 3 wing. PX 20 mylar is used on the leading edge. This cloth is only available in white with a black cross weave, it is UV resistant (within reason) and is easy to keep clean.|
|There are two undersurface panels on the Streak and Cruze wings and these can be coloured, use our colour picker to make up your own combination. The battens are enclosed within the trailing edge making the wing look super clean and low drag. The batten ends are designed so they are extremely easy to load and can be individually tensioned to make wing tuning a breeze. Setting up a Streak 3 is a one person operation as with all Airborne wings. Attaching the wing to the trike base is also a simple one person operation, the wing is lifted with the aid of a gas strut on the trike base.|
|The Streak 3 and Cruze look the part with low drag faired control frame, kingpost and CNC milled control bar corners. The trimmer control allows for easy operation and adjusts the trim speed by 10 knots.With state of the art design and many years of flexwing design influence we believe you will find Airborne wings have the best all round handling and performance on the market today. But don't take our word for it test fly and compare yourself.|
|The fuel tank holds 72 litres giving the pilot enough airtime for extensive cross country or circuit work. The tank is especially designed for the XT and helps to give the aircraft it's aerodynamic lines. The CNC milled mast capture has allowed an efficient means of attaching the engine mounts, the shock absorbers and the seat frame. The mast is held in place by this part which has been milled out of solid 6061 grade aluminium. This method of manufacturing allows for very strong and light weight components to be used.|
|The park brake is standard on the XT. We have also added a neoprene cover over the wheel hole in the fairing. This stops cold air flowing into the cockpit and help reduce drag.|
|Lifting the Streak 3 onto the XT base is simple and a one person operation. The mast is lowered, the wing connected and a gas strut helps you lift the wing. You can even use a strut to keep the wing in the half down position to allow for access into low hangers.|
|The seat frame has been widened but we have kept to our standard style of seat which has proved to be one of the more comfortable trike seats available. The cockpit has a tall windscreen for improved wind deflection and the cockpit is cut away at the sides to allow for easier pilot access. Seat fabric is a high grade outdoor marine fabric.|

to easily monitor engine and flight management. GX2 instrumentation
is standard on the XT. Checkout the specs on this superb instrument

|Ask anyone who has flown the Rotax 912 and you will get an enthusiastic response. This 912 is reliable, It runs smoothly and quietly and uses around 8-12 litres of fuel per hour. With the 72 litre (19 US gallon) fuel tank a cruise speed of 55-60 knots the XT is a true cross country microlight. This reliable Rotax 912 delivers a smooth 80 HP to our new beautifully crafted 3 blade composite propeller with CNC milled hub. People ask why we don't use the 912S and the answer is simple, the S engine will only give you slightly better climb and not more airspeed. The Streak 3 wing is efficient and we don't feel that you need anymore climb performance than what the XT delivers.|
