New Belite Ultralight Aircraft with chromalloy steel fuselage for < $20K

We have a very unusual aircraft available for delivery in Q4 of 2013.

This ultralight aircraft is a brand new RTF Belite ultralight aircraft built with a steel chromalloy 4130 steel fuselage.

It will look pretty much like this, except it will NOT have any fuselage covering on it, and the tires will be big!  And you pick the color!

***prices, specifications subject to change without notice***

Belite Ultralight Aircraft in Flight.

Belite Ultralight Aircraft in Flight, with chromalloy fuselage and aluminum flaperons.

We’re building this one both strong, light, and unusual:

a)  The fuselage is powdercoated and fully uncovered.  You may choose to cover it with fabric at any time, or you can pay us to cover it and paint it.

b)  An engine cowl is included, painted to complement the fuselage powdercoat color.

c)  The wings are constructed from doubled aluminum ribs (twice as many ribs) and aluminum spars.  This will reduce drag over the wing.

d)  The wings are covered with taught dacron and oracal, in a color of your choosing.

e)  The tail feathers are chromalloy steel as well, covered with dacron and oracal.

f)  A simple panel is included — basic Belite instruments, such as ASI, AGL, EGT/CHT, and INCLINOMETER.  Hey, I’ll even through in a TURN COORDINATOR.  The panel has open cutouts for many more instruments.

g)  The wheels are beefy 5.00 x 5’s.

h)  The engine is a 28HP F33 from Hirth, with electric start and ground recharge battery.

i)  Shock spring gear are included.

j)  Disc brakes are included.

k)  The final assembled RTF weight is approximately 250 pounds.  We guarantee a flying weight < 254 pounds.  Windshield, instrument panel and battery weight not included in flying weight.

l)  List price is $25,495, and we are offering an immediate discount of $5,500; so this one is $19,995.  Below is the spreadsheet with many extra features and options called out.

First come, first served on this extraordinary offer from Belite.  Shipping cost is extra.  $5000 nonrefundable deposit required.  Must take delivery before December 31, 2013.  Other terms and conditions will apply including our standard seller contract.

I did an amazing deal on a Belite a year ago; the buyer got an extraordinary airplane for his money.  Now, it’s your chance.  Call Kathy @ Belite for more info —>  316 253 6746.  Or email us: info@beliteaircraft.com
