EuroStar SL microlight receives type approval in United Kingdom
Following to an extensive testing program in United Kingdom which included stall spin tests in all configurations, the EuroStar SL gained the BMAA Type Approval in the microlight category in United Kingdom.
The new EuroStar SL microlight is based on the popular version of EV-97 Eurostar. Compared to previous UK’s version the new EuroStar SL microlight has a new attractive sleek design, enhanced cockpit comfort and spaciousness, ballistic recovery system, dual hydraulic brake system, wing tip navigation lights & strobes and full exterior painting. The new-style panoramic canopy with almost 360° visibility provides perfect situational awareness in all phases of flight. Comfortable cockpit has a new heating and ventilation system, side arm rests, adjustable pedals and provides amazing 1,18 m shoulder room.
Clever design upgrade and modern materials allows the aircraft to meet all of the UK’s BCAR Section S microlight standards and set a new era on the UK microlight market, both for training and private pilots.
The new EuroStar SL attracted a great interest of customers at AeroExpo UK in Sywell last weekend. Evektor’s UK distributor – Light Sport Aviation Ltd reported five orders for the aircraft – four going to flying schools and one to a private owner.
