4 new microlight types approved

Four new aircraft get the nod

The BMAA has approved four new microlights for the UK: the Aeropro EuroFox, Air Creation Bionix, Medway Microlights Clipper-100 and P&M Aviation Quik GTR.

The EuroFox, as youíll know from David Bremnerís flight test in April MF, is a two-seat, high wing mature design from Slovakian manufacturer Aeropro, with a welded steel tube fuselage and aluminium tube wing with a conventional doped fabric covering.

Powered by the Rotax 912 and available in tricycle gear and tail wheel variants, itís approved as a BMAA amateur build kit.

The Bionix, also approved as a BMAA amateur build kit, couples Air Creation's existing Tanarg with its new Bionix wing, which uses a novel corset trim system to improve low-speed roll control.

The 912-powered Clipper, a conventional two-seat, high wing monoplane with a tricycle undercarriage, has a bolted aluminium tube airframe with an unpainted Dacron covering.

A development of Medway Microlights SLA model, itís aimed at providing a reasonably priced trainer as an alternative to foreign-designed machines.

The Quik GTR is P&M's existing Quik trike coupled with the new GTR wing, which is similar to the QuikR wing but with more wing area for the training and touring markets and with P&M's new STARS system, which improves low-speed roll control.
