A. AIRFRAME

The airframe structure is manufactured with aircraft grade 6061 and 6063 aluminum, assembled with aircraft grade ny-lock nuts and bolts, and stainless steel cable. Avail for your next international travel.The standard engine is the Rotax 503, dual carb, dual ignition which develops 52 hp.

Starting at the front of the craft, I will identify the major components of the craft. First is the pneumatic front tire which is connected to the front fork. The front fork is attached to the nose gear carrier. Those items are made out of mild steel. Steel of course is heavier than aluminum, but as these components may be subject to high loads (e.g.. rough landings and rough terrain), we feel steel is a better choice of materials for this application.
