Required fields are marked *. The switches are activating both Magnetos. Pros – Rollison Light Sport Aircraft is an experienced importer that earns good marks for customer service from current EuroFox buyers. In some designs, flaperons bring some loss of full control deflection range (though I never ran out of aileron authority in the EuroFox). Large ground clearance in case of rough-field landing. Allistair’s a big guy, I’m of average size, and we weren’t crowded. Pros – Modern remake of the Avid Flyer with European finesse and refinement. Reasonably quiet. All that power makes takeoff roll, even at gross weight, a mere 160 feet. New brand name not known to many Americans. The dual-ignition switches are located in the left side of the instruments panel, above the Master Switch. He’s associated with Allistair Wilson who is making his own Astra trikes. The A220 features the Whelen LED wingtip lights. In such cases the engine becomes over-cooled and a loss of power might occur. Some designs will hit the 120-knot limit of Light-Sport Aircraft; EuroFox will not with Vne set at 128 mph (111 knots). The above price includes U.S. delivery (FOB Indiana). You may be able to store the bird in a garage stall. More Than Familiar? Cons – Many LSA designs offer more lateral size; two large Americans may feel rather crowded. When loading the aircraft, the aircraft trim is set-up for takeoff ("neutral"). During long approaches and when descending from a considerable height, it is not advisable to reduce the engine throttle control to idle. Should you find yourself flying illegally at night (in IFR no less! Cons – Some folks don’t prefer flaperons as they can limit control deflections somewhat when flaps are deployed (on some designs; no problem noticed on EuroFox), and as their position is not as easily verified visually. If I mow the grass just right at my home, I might be able to operate the FOX from BeachAV8R Air Park! I prefer a full-stall landing and in trying to assure a good landing on the second try, I held the nose quite high. Workmanship is beautiful. Rather, my approach to AirVenture’s ultralight strip required that I make a dogleg turn to final. The flap lever is a knob forward of the trim lever; both are reachable by either occupant. Suspension provided at all gear helps on rough fields. From my earliest training in a Champion Citabria and numerous Cessna 150s, I’m one who prefers high-wing airplanes, but they do block your visibility in turns. Speeds-to-fly and a checklist are in easy view of the occupants. Qualities; Efficiency; Ease; Comparative values. The wing flaps are controlled by the lever and rod and through the counter-shaft is threaded into aileron-flapperon circuit. Glide is reported at 14:1 and my experience during landings reinforced a flat glide angle. Toe brakes on both sides are an extra cost option. taxiing speed is 9 mph maximum. Recently he’s traveled to South America to see what’s available. Filed Under: Aeropro, Aerotrek A240, Aerotrek Aircraft, EuroFox '05, UF Pilot Report Tagged With: 3-Axis 2-Place, Fixed Wing Aircraft. Aerobatics and intentional spins are prohibited. Short harder braking is preferable to long, weaker braking, as the brake system will heat up during prolonged use and can cause brake fade and even unexpected failure. No other negatives. During normal operation, the engine is usually sufficiently cooled during the approach and landing. Brakes quite effective. A tailskid protects the rudder from damage on such full-stall landings that are easy to do in this trigear aircraft. Cons – As this plane evolved it got heavier (empty well over 600 pounds), which cuts into impressive performance otherwise expected from Rotax 912. Continuously increasing engine power to maximum, bring the aircraft into motion. Nosewheel steering is precise; looks like castoring but is not. There is also a landing light (two lights) fitted to the lower nose cowling which also acts as a taxi light. After that one trial I had quite a good landing and we never even used the adequately powerful brakes. As written above, please refer the linked documents up this page (Pilot Operating Handbook and Flight Training Supplement) of the real EuroFOX aircraft as the operation manual of the VSKYLABS Aeropro EuroFOX for use in X-Plane flight simulator, as well as a supplement for flying the aircraft in X-Plane, in terms of flying characteristics, handling, techniques etc... For your convenience, I've pasted down here some of the information that is available is the official EuroFOX aircraft manual. In most regards, the EuroFOX is operated just like any garden-variety light piston single with dual magnetos, electric starter, a generator, fuel pump, and carburetor heat. Pros – Strong performance with 100-hp Rotax 912 though the 80-horse Rotax 912 model will be plenty for most operators. For comparison a Cessna 150 can achieve about 10:1 and even this figure is higher than lots of ultralight designs. Good range (more than 500 miles). Our test plane used a shapely prop from Fiti Designs that no doubt plays a role in keeping the noise output within Europe’s tight noise standards. As I looked over the EuroFox, I was struck by Aeropro’s precision work. Dutch rolls and precise turns to headings were very easy and straightforward. There are two actually, in case your white knuckled flight instructor reaches his limit. With the EuroFox in this category, it will be able to be flown by existing Private and Recreational pilots, but also by people holding the new "Sport Pilot" license. Many Ultralight Flying! Flights at ambient temperature between 14 F and 32 F are permitted only under no icing conditions and when the carburetor heating is activated. This system consists of a white rearward-facing LED lights and a flashing LED strobe light on the side of both wingtips, a green forward-facing LED light on the right wingtip and a red forward-facing light on the left wingtip. Allistair and I spent less than an hour aloft, so I didn’t get a chance to see how the seats would feel on a longer flight – the EuroFox has a range of more than 400 miles – but the cushions and back rest are certainly comfortable for shorter flights. Cruise speeds place the EuroFox as a medium performer in the LSA segment. Avoid excessive speed and use proper braking techniques to avoid brake overheating. SLEEK AND MODERN – Though its heritage dates back to the early Avid Flyer, the EuroFox has seen many changes, among them the transition to trigear (though you can also have it in taildragger configuration). The engine is equipped with an electric starter, AC generator and a mechanical fuel delivery pump. A strong glide (14:1 says producer) helps reach fields during landing approaches. Flaperons aren’t quite as effective as discreet flaps. Normally this will mean utilizing the electric fuel pump during takeoff, during climb-out to a safe minimum altitude, during any low-altitude operations, and during landing. Fuel level indicators are part of each tank, the minimum fuel warning light is mounted as a standard. Barnstormers will be excited to note the aircraft is equipped with a control stick instead of a yoke. Major fabrication in the Slovak republic with final approval and export from the Czech Republic; distributed by U.S.-owned company. Your email address will not be published. Climb is quite exhilarating. Pros – Familiar materials and construction techniques should reassure many buyers and provide for good longevity (important when the investment becomes this dear; just under $50,000 at today’s exchange rates).
