The 3Xtrim is a single-engine, two-seater monoplane with braced high wing, conventional controls and fixed three-wheel landing gear. The front-mounted engine is coupled to a two-blade or three-blade (depending on version) adjustable pulling propeller. A spacious, heated and ventilated cockpit with seats in one row and a large baggage compartment make the airplane comfortable, silent and well furbished. Access is easy through doors on each side opening upwards and supported in this position by gas springs.
Fixed three-wheel landing gear with castoring front wheel, composite main spring and hydraulic disc brakes, ensures safe take-off and landing on all types of airport surfaces, grass included.
The Ballistic Rescue System (BRS5) provides protection for the passengers and aircraft at altitudes above 30 m and speeds up to 235 kmph (145 mph). The aircraft structure is fabricated from composites based on epoxy resin with glass and carbon fibre. This totally composite structure reduces necessary maintenance work to pre-flight inspection and cleaning.
The aircraft fully complies with the JAR-VLA requirements and has a Type Certificate of Very Light Airplane. Excellent flight characteristics make this aircraft a perfect choice for primary schooling, training, travelling, and recreation. The aircraft is just as suitable for patrol flights and aerial photography. Flying is precise, easy, safe, and pleasant. Thanks to the incorporated technical solutions, components and materials, operational costs are low and comparable with a medium-class passenger car. A three-years manufacturer\'s warranty is standard. The aircraft is manufactured in three versions:
ULA - Ultra Light Aircraft AULA - Advanced Ultra Light Aircraft VLA - Very Light Aircraft
