Fläming Air FA 01 Smaragd / FA 02 / FA 04 Peregrine
FA 04 Peregrine
The Smaragd / Emerald is a conventional low-wing aircraft with classical tail unit and tricycle landing gear, built from glass and carbon fiber reinforced plastic. The seats are next to each other arranged and adjustable. Behind the seats are the very roomy baggage compartment and the evacuation equipment. The wing anchorage is solved over interlinking cross-beam roots and a main pin as with modern Seglern, which permits an extremely simple disassembly. The main landing gear consists of rocker with hydraulically braked wheels of GRP kevlar. The tanks are arranged in the wing; 55 and/or 110 litres were available.
The Smaragd had it's maiden flight on March 22nd, 2003 and was licensed on December 29th, 2003.
The aircraft was designed and produced by Flaeming Air of Zehlendorf, Brandenburg, to comply with the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale microlight rules and US light-sport aircraft rules, with different models for each category. It features a cantilever low-wing, a two-seats-in-side-by-side configuration enclosed cockpit under a bubble canopy, fixed tricycle landing gear, or optionally conventional landing gear and a single engine in tractor configuration.

The aircraft is made from composites, with its fuselage, wing spars, flaps and rudder made from carbon fibre. Its 10.05 m (33.0 ft) span wing has an area of 9.27 m2 (99.8 sq ft). The standard engines available are the 100 hp (75 kW) Rotax 912ULS, 120 hp (89 kW) Jabiru 3300 and the 100 hp (75 kW) Continental O-200 powerplants.

FA-04 Peregrine light sport aircraft
The FA-04 Peregrine factory-built Special Light Sport Aircraft (SLSA) is based on Flaeming Air's FA-02 rugged VLA certified aircraft. The FA-04 can easily be configured from tricycle to tail wheel by a certified mechanic. The cockpit, 44 inch wide at the shoulders, has adjustable seats ergonomically designed, electric flaps, and hydraulic toe brakes with a hand brake option. A mechanical elevator trim or an optional electric trim is available.
