Solowings.co.za: Microlight ultralight aircraft - flyingdata

By: Solo Wings  11-11-2011


The AQUILLA is fitted with a 50-litre tank, which allows for a very healthy range. With a full tank you can cruise for over four hours, that is 400 km at 80 kph.

The AQUILLA wing is custom made and comes in a few sizes the most popular being the standard 14 sqm or the 15 sqm.

The AQUILLA 14 is designed to be an ideal all round wing and one we recommend for all flying conditions. It is exceptionally predictable with light responses therefore it excels in turbulent conditions. Like all our wings the design characteristics are strength, stability, light handling and a forgiving nature.

The AQUILLA 15 has all the characteristics of the AQUILLA 14 but its main features are higher lift with shorter take off and landing abilities. We recommend this wing when flown at high altitude and in conjunction with the 503 engine.
