The GT 500 introduced in 1990 is a high wing, tandem seating two place, tri gear, in a pusher configuration. Control is dual control yokes and rudder pedals. The craft uses bolt together aluminum tube covered in dacron sailcloth.

Engine: 582 Rotax
Cruise Speed: 80 m.p.h.
Stall Speed: 32 m.p.h.

Construction: Aluminum Tube/Dacron

Building times are in the 250 to 350 hour range. The quality and finish of this kit is one of the best in the industry. To date this is the first and only aircraft to meet, by proof of compliance, our Advance ultralight standards TP 10141. It did this by proving proof of compliance to the U.S.. Sport Aeroplane category.


The GT 500 comes standard with the 503 Rotax engine. This is a lot like putting a 4 cylinder engine in a full size truck. The GT 500 really comes to life and shows is able to show her stuff when you power her up with a 582 or 912. With the 582 climb at gross is a comfortable 1000 per minute, cruise at 5800 will push the needle on your airspeed to 80 m.p.h.. Stall using flaps a comfortable 35 m.p.h.. Visibility is good , pilot seating excellent for the front seat a little less for the back. It can be flown with the doors zippered on, or with the doors removed. This is a great little aeroplane but a little over priced.
