Just Aircraft 103
Troy Woodland designed the Just 103 to conform to the FAA Part 103 requirements for ultralight aircraft, including a maximum weight of 254 pounds, a single seat, and a top speed of 63 mph. The new ultralight logged 1.5 hours before heading to the Sun 'n Fun International Fly-In and Expo. Other than a narrow windscreen, the pilot is very much out in the open air, “which was typical with a lot of earlier Part 103 designs”.
A Polini Thor 250 engine from Italy supplies 37 horsepower at 7,500 rpm, and retails for less than $4,000. Woodland also expected to mount a Rotax 582, which would push the aircraft beyond the ultralight limits and require registration as a light sport or experimental light sport aircraft.
The company was to sell the Just 103 as a kit or ready-to-fly from the factory in Walhalla, South Carolina.
