Belite offers low-cost version of its “Superlite” Part 103 ultralight
 
Wichita-based Belite Aircraft this week at EAA AirVenture 2010 introduced a low-cost version of its “Superlite” high-performance single-seat Part 103 ultralight.

The new model is priced at $28,655 and features a flying weight of 254 pounds, complete with a Hirth 50-hp engine. The Superlite was named the 2010 Grand Champion Ultralight at Florida’s Sun ’n Fun Fly-in earlier this year.

The low-cost version of the Superlite deletes options that many pilots don’t require, including carbon fiber wings and interior options plus a ballistic parachute. This saves substantial money for the buyer and results in slight performance increases.

The new low-cost Superlite features a Hirth 50-hp engine de-rated to 38 horsepower for Part 103 compliance, turning a two-blade prop. The machine also sports dual ignition, a fully welded 4130 aircraft steel fuselage, four-point safety harness, Belite Avionics panel with air speed, AGL Altimeter, CHT/EGT, and inclinometer, along with four-position flaps with high lift Riblett airfoil wing design; and a five-gallon spun aluminum fuel tank.

The Superlite uses the exact same fuselage and wing as Belite’s standard ultralight model while the engine mount, engine and propeller provide a new performance combination.

Additional features, pricing, availability and information is available by visiting the Belite website www.BeliteAircraft.com, or by stopping in at one of the company’s AirVenture booths, number 616 in the North Aircraft Display area and number 934 in the Ultralight Display area.
