Weighing as little as in the 30s
This new version of the A50 Junior is also an ultralight aircraft in the 600 kg class and is designed with open tandem seating. It corresponds to the typical light aircraft image from the end of the twenties, so it has a very classic appearance. Although it does involve use of the latest technology: the A50 is propelled by a four-cylinder Rotax engine producing 100 hp with an MT propeller. The brakes are provided by Beringer and the avionics by GARMIN. These features together with the Galaxy parachute rescue system installed in the previous baggage compartment ensure the greatest possible safety. All necessary information is displayed on modern screens that the pilot monitors from the rear seat, otherwise the cockpit retains its retro trim.
Through this customer‘s order, we were able to outgrow ourselves and realize the project within only one and a half years. For this purpose, we have created the design data and the complete CAD model, built tools as well as jigs, and carried out optimizations to set up serial production.
In order to obtain the provisional flight approval, we have provided all the necessary evidence, such as a breakage test, etc. Kasaero GmbH developed the verification for this matter. Further development, installation and testing of instrumentation, electrics/avionics, fuel, cooling and oil systems, as well as the engine installation, were carried out by MTAS Aviation GmbH in cooperation with Kasaero and kaelin aero.
