Raven Rotorcraft Raven Lite


 First flown in 1996, development/testing continued into 2008. With ongoing changes in the Ultralight/Light Sport arena, development of both the FAR Part 103 legal Ultralight gyro and the 2-3 seat cargo twin-engine gyro were put on hold.

Taildragger landing gear with large "tundra tires", cable braced tempered aluminum main gear, and steerable tailwheel for superior handling off runway on rough terrain.

Conventional elevator control in the pitch axis are to minimize "porpoising" and "bunt-over". A chrome-moly roll cage construction with pilot enclosure and lexan windshield are provided.

An optional pre-rotator assembly is available for reduced take off distance.
