XT912-SST (strut braced)
Finally, a strutted microlight with a
cruising speed of 65 knots and a range of 700 kms
SST stands for strutted or strut braced wing.
With superior aerodynamics over conventional microlights with
top rigging it also allows the aircraft to be stored in a much
lower hanger. In fact, if the wing was lowered into the low
hangar position it would need even less height than a small
fixed wing aircraft.
The struts give the SST a more solid look and
feel in the air. Our intention was to design a wing that
handles extremely well in varying weather conditions and that
has a 70 knot cruise speed. This has been achieved – the SST
frame and sail feature the latest development in flexwing
airframe and sail cloth technology. The images in the press
gallery show how well the sail has been designed to sit on
the frame in flight.
We have improved leading edge definition with
increased use of mylar to the undersurface. The leading edge
round is cut into the sail to allow controlled washout at the
tips. The airframe is state of the art with multi sleeved 6061
aluminium and CNC engineered fittings.
Trimmer control gives the pilot power
assisted pitch through the control bar handle – turn the
handle for slower or faster trim speeds.
The XT912-SST Tundra combines a highly
developed touring wing with a proven engine and base design.
The Tundra version opens up a huge range of landing

||The fuel tank holds 72
litres giving the pilot enough airtime for extensive
cross country or circuit work. The tank is especially
designed for the XT and helps to give the aircraft it's
aerodynamic lines. The CNC milled mast capture has
allowed an efficient means of attaching the engine
mounts, the shock absorbers and the seat frame. The mast
is held in place by this part which has been milled out
of solid 6061 grade aluminium. This method of
manufacturing allows for very strong and light weight
components to be used.|
