Ameri-Can Ultralights Euraka

ameri-canultralightseuraka


Of pre-manufactured sub-assemblies, with wings, tail empennage and fuselage all pre-built, ready for bolt-on, the kit arrives pre-fabricated and pre-painted white. The wings are built around a single deep spar. There are 26 foam ribs in each 12 foot long wing. When this assembly has been built, it is covered in full-span panels of pre-painted (white) aluminum skins, durable and UV-resistant. The resultant wing weighs less than 35 pounds. It is attached to the fuselage with just a few bolts, and in about 5 minutes. This airplane can be easily assembled in the field, and allows for trailer transport.


The purchaser assembles pre-built components with the supplied aircraft-grade bolts and nuts. This means that wrenches are the only tools required to assemble this aircraft kit.


It was designed to fly with a Hirth F-33 25hp engine, with electric start, or alternately, the Zenoah GB25 22hp engine with pull start can be used. Higher horsepower engines are not recommended.


First flown in August 1997, by July 2003 the Eureka had been withdrawn from the market due to lack of resources.
