The BEaST is here! Who would have thought the beast would be a shark, a new ultralight / LSA aircraft from Shark Aero in Slovakia. With its ultramodern design in carbon fiber and sophisticated aerodynamic shape, you can see why this aircraft got named Shark!
Cruising at a speed of 157 kts with a 100hp engine, it doesn’t take a genius to understand how efficient modern airplanes are. This aircraft will surely attract a lot of attention when it hits the market.
The LSA version of this aircraft does not have retractable gear and a variable pitch propeller; it also has a bigger wing than the ultralight version.
