Sky-Maxx. A very special aircraft
|Pressemitteilung von: Aircraft Manufactory Voigt and Partners|
(openPR) - All metal, high wing Ultralight / LSA (SLA)|
The Sky-Maxx, the ideal aircraft for pilots desiring the higher cruise speeds available with aircraft in the Light Sports Aircraft (LSA/SLA) or ultralight category, whilst still maintaining the short field capabilities of the traditional microlight.
Of aluminium alloy construction, the Sky-Maxx is a conventional, three axis, non-strut-braced monoplane. It's high lift wing, incorporating leading edge slats and electrical flaps, produces unsurpassed short take-off and landing (STOL) performance, whilst maintaining 103 kts (200 km/h) cruise.
Sky-MAXX in comparison to conventional Ultralights:
Many ultralight-manufactors don't built their airplanes for (long-)distance-flights but they built them mainly up on nostalgia-reproductions and fun-appliances.
Compared with these models, the Sky-MAXX distinguishes itself through his robust full-aluminum-construction and highest quality-standards, that are far over the usual standards in the ultralight-norm.
So, electric flaps and trimming are offered by many manufacturers not even as special-provisions, for example. By the Sky-MAXX, these belong to the series-provisions.
Individual provision-variations (different tails, different undercarriage systems), motor-selection, varnishing as well as further avionic-accessoires are criterions, that don't offer most other ul-manufactors.
Conventional ultralights can be flown usually only by one pilot. The Sky-MAXX can be flown by 2 pilots.
The view-field in the Sky-MAXX amounts approximately 270° and corresponds that of a helicopter.
And, last but not least: Sky-MAXX is able to fly a low stall speed and is able to fly a high vmax.
Sky-MAXX in comparison to helicopters:
The extremely outstanding speed of the Sky-MAXX allows vibration-free flights (for observation or photo-flights).
The Sky-MAXX cannot replace the helicopter if it is necessary to start or to land vertically, but as soon as however, a start and runway of 30-50 meters (professionell pilots need only 10-15 meters) is available, the use of an Sky-MAXX is more advantageous in every case:
A small helicopter starts approximately in the purchase at 450,000.00 USD, an Sky-MAXX starts approximately in the basic-configuration at 100,000.00 USD (ready for fly) or 49,500.00 USD (for a 120 hrs-kit).
A flight-hour in a helicopter is to calculate at minimum 400.00 USD, the Sky-MAXX costs approximately 60,00 USD per hour.
The essentially higher education-costs of the pilots are not taken into account on that occasion at the helicopter.
Sky-MAXX is the perfect solution for:
control and observation flights,
farmer and forest inspectors,
coastguard and police,
photography and animal whatching
and for all pilots who take care of good quality and special performance:
