ML-500 - Photo #1

Meet the Microleve ML-500, a Brazilian ultralight aircraft designed and manufactured by Microleve in the late 1990s.

The ML-500 seats two people and is a parasol/high-wing monoplane constructed from aluminum tubing and covered with dacron fabric.

The ML-500 is powered by a Rotax 582 engine, 48 kW (64 hp). The Rotax engine is plenty powerful due to the aircraft's lightweight design. With its simple construction and responsive handling, the ML-500 is popular among recreational pilots and flight enthusiasts. It offers a cruising speed of 56 mph (90 km/h). The Microleve ML-500's compact size and efficient design make it well-suited for short-distance flights and aerial sightseeing.

Editors note: The aircraft configuration (such as engine choice) may vary depending on individual modifications.
