North Wing Aircraft Maverick
The design of both the trike and the wing of the Maverick single-place ultralight has been enhanced to include features that benefit flight performance, improve set-up convenience, add storage space, and more.
The Maverick 2 trike frame has been extended to maximize storage space behind the pilot, enable additional fuel storage, camping equipment, and anything that fits in the space and maintains acceptable weight limits. Also changed is the folding design of the trike mast, so only the mast pivots just above the seat rail and now includes a spring-assisted mast as our Apache two-place trike has. The new spring-assisted mast on the Maverick 2 reduces the effort required to lift the wing into position, reducing the effort from lifting 83 lbs of wing to only 15 lbs.
The Maverick 2 Wing also has been improved, featuring new strutted airframe components, and increased the load rating of the wing, from 550 gross to 650 gross by a new airframe. The increased load rating is especially helpful for pilots who like to fly on floats. The Maverick 2 wing has the ability for the wing to fold back while attached to the trike.
The Maverick 2 is a "state of the art", highly refined low profile single-place trike. This trike comes in two choices: Maverick 2 Legend (streamlined fairings) and Maverick 2 RT (no fairings).
This aircraft uses aircraft grade aluminum tubing throughout the trike frame, and aircraft hardware and fasteners. The rear suspension uses a strong fiberglass pultruded axle with drag struts. If you like to have a hand at building part of your trike, you may purchase the Maverick 2 trike and wing without the engine, propeller or gauges.

The Maverick 2 wing has been improved, featuring a strutted airframe instead of the kingpost and wires design that added drag and reduced flight performance. The load rating of the wing has been increased, from 550 gross to 650 gross by a new airframe. The increased load rating is especially helpful for pilots who like to fly on floats. The Maverick 2 wing has the ability for the wing to fold back while attached to the trike. All parts are made in the U.S.A.
