 Antares Aircraft A-10 Solo
 
The Antares A-10 Solo Ukrainian ultralight trike is a single-seat derivative of the two-seat Antares MA-32. It was designed to comply with the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale microlight category, including the category's maximum gross weight of 450 kg (992 lb). The aircraft has a maximum gross weight of 450 kg (992 lb). The aircraft was supplied as a kit for amateur construction or complete and ready-to-fly. The A-10 was distributed as a kit in the United States where it is approved for the Experimental - Amateur-built category.
 
The aircraft design features a cable-braced hang glider-style high-wing, weight-shift controls, a single-seat open cockpit with a cockpit fairing, tricycle landing gear with wheel pants and a single engine in pusher configuration.
 
The aircraft is made from bolted-together aluminum tubing, with a single-piece composite mainwheel spring system and a titanium front wheel fork for off-airport landings. The double surface wing covered in Dacron sailcloth. Its 10 m (32.8 ft) span wing is supported by a single tube-type kingpost and uses an "A" frame weight-shift control bar. Optionally a "topless" wing, lacking the kingpost, can be fitted. The powerplant is a twin cylinder, air-cooled, two-stroke, dual-ignition 50 hp (37 kW) Rotax 503 engine or optionally a 40 hp (30 kW) Rotax 447 engine.
 
A number of different wings can be fitted to the basic carriage, including the standard Aeros Stranger 2, or Aeros Still 17. Optional wings include the Aeros Stranger 2M, Aeros Stream 16 or Aeros Profi.
 
In production in 2018, the unit cost was US$25,000.
