Are you in the market for a Light Sport Aircraft? Do you prefer high-wing designs? You soon will have another option.
SportairUSA LC, the North American distributor of the TL 2000 StingSport S-LSA, will preview a cabin model of the high-wing TL 3000 Sirius at EAA AirVenture 2007 this month.
The Sirius, manufactured by TL-Ultralight in the Czech Republic, is constructed from carbon fiber composite materials and powered by a Rotax 912 engine. It has a 48 inch cabin and room for baggage behind the seats.
Because the aircraft will be certified as an S-LSA, it can be used for flight instruction. Flight testing is expected to be completed in the fall, with aircraft ready for USA delivery next year.
In addition to showing off the Sirius cabin model at AirVenture, SportairUSA will exhibit the latest versions of the low-wing StingSport. The aircraft is available with steam gauges or with a full avionics upgrade and a dual glass cockpit.
SportairUSA, based in Little Rock, Arkansas, is the North American distributor for StingSport and Sirius aircraft, Woodcomp propellers and the “GreenLine” engine monitoring system by I-K Technologies.
The StingSport was the fifth S-LSA certified in the USA, and the first to incorporate as standard equipment a whole-plane ballistic recovery parachute, the Garmin nav/comm sport stack with moving map, PCAS collision avoidance, full-time carburetor heat and AmSafe four-point inertial-reel restraints, according to company officials.
