High-Wing Airplane Joins The Sting From SportairUSA
The first Sirius SLSA from TL Ultralight is now available to
fly. SportairUSA, LC, the North American distributor for the Sirius
and the Sting S3, is offering introductory flights at the North
Little Rock, Arkansas, Municipal Airport (KORK).
“This aircraft’s cabin is even more spacious than we
anticipated,” said Bill Canino, President of SportairUSA. The
Sirius interior measures 45” wide at the shoulders, 44”
at the hips and sports considerably more head room and leg room
than the typical light sport aircraft. Entry and exit are
by the generous doors and yoke steering. With ample luggage space,
33 gallons of fuel and 550 lbs useful load, Canino calls the Sirius
“the perfect travel partner.”
The Sirius is the high-wing companion to the low-wing Sting.
Both are certificated in the USA as special light sport aircraft
and are manufactured by TL-Ultralight, s.r.o., in the Czech
Republic. The Sirius, like the Sting, is a two passenger, carbon
fiber composite, fixed-wing airplane powered by the 100 hp Rotax
912ULS engine and equipped with the industry’s
fastest-opening GRS whole-plane ballistic parachute.
The Sirius comes fully equipped for cross-country flight. The
instrument panel accommodates either a traditional six-pack
arrangement of flight instruments or any of a variety of primary
and multipurpose flight displays – from Dynon, Garmin, Grand
Rapids Technologies and TruTrak – along with a full
complement of avionics.
