McLeod Terrafly
 
 McLeod-Terrafly-01
 
Designed to capture the spirit of the Santos Dumont Demoiselle, in developing this aircraft over 19 years, designer Kevin McLeod set out to produce a simple, rugged ‘back to basics’ machine that he hoped would be fun to fly.
 
The Terrafly is an original design ultralight aircraft built under the provisions of Australian ANO 95-10. Work started on the project in 1984.
 
The Terrafly is a single engine, high-wing, tail-dragging monoplane with conventional three axis controls. As with the Demoiselle, the pilot sits under the wing with the propeller wash in his face. The open cockpit has an airspeed indicator, altimeter, a dual CHT/EGT gauge, compass, clock, a G-meter, a Hobbs Hour Meter and fuel sight gauge.
 
 McLeod-Terrafly-02
 
The only example of the Terrafly built, registered 10-0571, was not test-flown and so information on its performance has never been established. The aircraft was donated to the South Australia Aviation Museum in October 2006 by the owner/designer.
