Airborne Windsports XT
The XT-912 Tourer is a flexwing microlight which uses the Streak or Cruze wing. The Streak-3 is the faster of the two wings with a hands-off trim speed of 56-60 knots compared to the Cruze with a trim speed of 47-52 knots. With the large capacity 70 litre fuel tank there is a potential range of 702 kilometres (436 miles) and optional dual rear disc brakes deliver stopping power for tight landing fields. The Skydat GX2 glass panel digital instrument features full engine and flight management readouts.
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, and the front uses double action adjustable shock absorbers. The XT comes standard with carb heating.
The XT-582 Tourer features all the refinements of the XT-912 base with the lower cost 582 Rotax 65hp dual ignition dual carburettor (DCDI) engine. The XTC-582 comes standard with the Cruze wing. The Cruze has a fully faired control frame with a trimmer control.The enclosed battens make for a super clean traing edge.
The 582 Tourer coupled with the Cruze wing has a faired aerodynamic control frame with trimmer control. The trimmer can be set to allow the aircraft to fly at set speeds within an 8 knot range. This feature is standard on all Streak-3 and Cruze wings. The Rotax 582 engine delivers a hands off cruise speed of around 52 knots with the Cruze wing. With XT seating and 70 litre fuel tank the XT-582 Tourer makes for a great cross country microlight. The 6” wheels allow the XT-582 Tourer to handle rough airstrips and dual rear disc brakes are available as an option.
Designed for flying around Australia and Alaska, the XT-912 Tundra with a Rotax 912 80hp is a rugged microlight that can handle extra rough or sandy terrain. Equipped with a faired cockpit, there is an optional tall windscreen for the XT-912 Tundra.
The XT-912 Tundra can be matched up with a variety of wings including the Merlin, Cruze and Streak-3. The wider wheel spats help the trike base track better with the faster Streak-3 wing. Powered by the Rotax and with optional dual rear disc brakes the XT-912 Outback has more than enough power for normal and towing flight.
The standard Skydat GX2 digital instrumentation features full engine and flight management with fuel flow and accumulated fuel usage in an easy to read glass panel.
