Meet The Skylark….
The man who designed Skylark, David Marsden, had three objectives in mind when he sat down with a clean sheet of paper and began creating lines and contours for a new airplane: First, he wanted an aircraft that would provide superb performance and handling…pilot-friendly manners in cruise and final approach; Second, he wanted a sense of style that would get away from the “adapted” look…you know, the look that says this concept started out as an ultralight and was upgraded, and third he wanted comfort for the pilot and passenger, enabling both to spend six to eight hours in the sky and feel refreshed when they’re done flying for the day.

The Skylark takes Light Sport Aircraft to a new level in style. The lines and contours exude a sense of high energy and grace that not only looks good, but turns heads and delivers in performance. This two place, side-by-side, all metal, low wing aircraft provides strength and ruggedness not found in most LSA's: it can withstand 7 G's and has a Vne of 179 mph and a maximum LSA cruise of 138 MPH.
