FEATURED MANUFACTURER - TL ULTRALIGHT
The newest member of our family, the TL-3000 Sirius, is a full carbon composite airframe high-wing. The project began in 2006, with a proof of concept aircraft shown in Friedrichshafen and Oshkosh last year. The first flights of the prototype took place in the end of May. Powered by the ROTAX series of aircraft engines and available with a wide range of advanced avionics options, the generous cabin space and clean lines of the Sirius destine it to become a strong complement to the Sting. While the aircraft is still in flight testing, early feedback proves that it will be a strong performer. With the first production pieces planned for delivery to Europe in the second half of this year, the LSA version is planned for roll out in the beginning of 2009.
First introduced in 2001, the full carbon composite Sting is the premier low-wing aircraft from TL-Ultralight. It is powered by the ROTAX series of aircraft engines and is available with both fixed and retractable gear. Available with a wide variety of options including full airframe recovery parachute system, towing equipment and advanced avionics including full glass panel cockpit and autopilot options, the Sting suits even the most demanding pilots. Known for its superb visibility and flight characteristics, the Sting is delivered in Europe and many other regions of the world as an ULM. New for 2008, the latest evolution of the LSA version for the US market, the Sting S3, is receiving very positive reviews in the very competitive LSA market.
