Aerolite 120 now available in the UK

For under £20k, could this be the perfect way to take to the sky this summer?  The Aerolite 120 is now available in the UK.

Based on the Aerolite 103 originally designed in 1997 by US designer Terry Raber, now German company VIERWERK has developed a European version of the Ultralight, the AEROLiTE 120. The aircraft is a motorised, single-seater, three axis microlight aircraft that fits into the 120 kg SSDR (single seat deregulated) category in the UK.

VIERWERK has successfully completed testing of the AEROLiTE 120 in compliance with the strict German LTF-L/UL regulations for the European Union, to meet the high standards regarding safety and reliability for the European market. The testing process has been certified by the French aeronautical authority and therefore complies with the regulations for legal flying in Germany, France and the UK.

The frame of the lightweight aircraft is built from aviation grade aluminium. The wings are covered with Dacron fabric, a very strong high-tech polyester fibre. The AEROLiTE 120 is powered by a rear-mounted Hirth F33 AS engine and driven by a pusher propeller. It is steered with a classic yoke. Equipped with engine-E-Starter, the classic yoke, a ballistic parachute and electric driven flaps, the AEROLiTE 120 offers a touch of comfort and luxury for under £20k new.

Slow is the new cool. Open to the elements, panoramic visibility, a cruise of 70mph and an endurance of 2 hours – what better way to reconnect with nature after a hard days work!

Kairos Aviation is the new agent for the AEROLiTE 120 in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. Find further information on www.kairos-aviation.co.uk or talk to Peter Foggin on 01202 805179.

L G 20k for a SSDR ? I thought this new category was ment to be a cheap way to get people flying. if the machines cost is so high the ssdr group of aircraft will die out quickly soon after being born.

Heike Heinzelmann This is a factory built machine, complying with European safety standards including a ballistic shoot. What kind of price do you think would be more adequate?

L G aerolite 103 is sold for 16k USD. I understand that EU regulation might make it dearer but doubling the price seems to be a bit much. I have a PPL and looked into ssdrs to keep fly cheper but for £20k I can buy a share on a Cessna and pay

L G my share of maintenance costs for 10 years if nothing major goes wrong. I believe ssdr are a great introduction but the price isn't right in my opinion.
