Welcome, Kitplanes readers! I hope you’ve enjoyed reading the excellent article on Belite in April’s cover article.
Tonight’s a multimedia night on this blog… pics and video. The best pic is the very last one.
We had a day of great flying weather — a little crosswind — I compensated by ignoring the crosswind, then by landing diagonally across the runway. You can see that in the video clip I’ve posted in this post.
First, a great photo taken by Gene Stratton:
The Belite Trike airplane in the pic is ready for customer delivery, with the customer arriving tomorrow to take it home.
Ultralight Aircraft For Sale! Next up, a Belite 254 with 28HP CRE engine, with really wonderful fat tundra tires. Ultralight legal at 250 pounds, as pictured, including the tires. Includes a nice instrument panel and you can buy it now.!
And here’s a plane which is going to our south coast dealer, Joe Chlup. It’s got really light wheels on it, as it is destined to be a sea plane very soon!
So let’s line up four Belites in a row…
The closest plane is currently featured (April 2011) on the cover of Kitplanes magazine.
So let’s hop in that plane, attach a camera to the top of the wing, and take a video, OK?
I did exactly that. Here’s a video on Youtube showing startup to landing of the Belite Superlite.
It shows the fun I have in the airplane: wingovers (sort of), tight turns, quick takeoffs, and spot landings.
I saved the best picture for last. Here’s the little yellow trike, entering the flare:
