The new TL-3000 Sirius Light Sport Aaircraft (LSA) is now available for purchase in the USA.
According to officials with SportairUSA LC, the North American distributor, the announcement marks the completion of testing, tooling and LSA certification of the airplane.
The Sirius is the high-wing companion to the low-wing Sting. Both are certificated in the USA as SpecialLSA and are manufactured by TL-Ultralight, s.r.o., in the Czech Republic. The Sirius, like the Sting, is a two-passenger, carbon fiber composite, fixed-wing airplane powered by a 100-hp Rotax 912ULS engine and equipped with a whole-plane ballistic parachute.
The Sirius comes fully equipped for cross-country flight and will comply with ASTM standards for
instrument flight rules (IFR), according to company officials. The instrument panel accommodates either a traditional six-pack arrangement of flight instruments or any of a variety of primary and multipurpose flight displays – from Dynon, Garmin, Grand Rapids Technologies and TruTrak – along with a full complement of avionics.
