3xtrim 450 Ultra / 495 Ultra Plus
The 3Xtrim is a single-engine, two-seater monoplane with braced high wing, conventional controls and fixed three-wheel landing gear. The front-mounted engine is coupled to a two-blade or three-blade (depending on version) adjustable pulling propeller. A heated and ventilated cockpit with seats in one row and a large baggage compartment make the airplane comfortable, silent and well furbished. Doors are on each side, opening upwards, and are supported in this position by gas springs. Fixed three-wheel landing gear with castoring front wheel, composite main spring and hydraulic disc brakes, allows for safe take-off and landing on all types of airport surfaces, grass included.
The Ballistic Rescue System (BRS5) provides protection for the passengers and aircraft at altitudes above 30 m and speeds up to 235 kmph (145 mph). The entire aircraft structure is fabricated from composites based on epoxy resin with glass and carbon fibre, reducing necessary maintenance work to pre-flight inspection and cleaning. The aircraft fully complies with the JAR-VLA requirements and has a Type Certificate of Very Light Airplane.
Flight characteristics make this aircraft suitable for primary training, cross-country, and recreation. The aircraft is also suitable for patrol flights and aerial photography. A three-year manufacturer's warranty is standard. The aircraft is manufactured in three versions: ULA - Ultra Light Aircraft; ULA - Advanced Ultra Light Aircraft; VLA - Very Light Aircraft.
