Do you offer a 2-seat version?
A 2-seat model is in the beginning stages of design, but don’t expect to see anything available to the public for at least 3 years at best. For now, we are focusing on our single place units.
Is the VX2 available yet?
We expect the VX2 (Rotax 912 version) to be available late summer of 2022
Can I purchase online?
Yes! See our new “shop” tab at the top of the page!
If you are more comfortable placing your order over the phone, that’s fine! Give us a call. We’d love to talk to you! (507-243-3991)
Can I fly without a license?
No. These machines do not meet the FAA part 103 Ultralight classification in terms of max weight, fuel capacity, and top speed. To legally fly, you will need at least a sport pilot license with a gyro endorsement. (Really not that hard to get if you put your mind to it)
Can I install a pod?
It’s experimental, you can do whatever you want! However, any changes or additions will certainly affect the weight and balance as well as the aerodynamic flight characteristics. This could result in a very dangerous (if not deadly) configuration. The GT-VX-1 is an open format machine, designed to maximize the sensation of flight!
How far can I fly?
If using a Rotax 582, it will burn about 6 gallons per hour. (Thirsty little buggers!) A comfortable cruise speed is about 60 MPH. Full fuel tanks (7.5 Gallons) will then give you a range of 50+ miles with a safe fuel reserve.
This would be a straight-line course to your destination. In reality though, you will be having too much fun, and your flight path will not be a straight line, but rather resembling something closer to a bowl of spaghetti!
Is the GT-VX1 Centerline Thrust?
Very close to CLT! The thrust-line offset to the Center of mass of the GT-VX1 is just over 1”.
What power plant is used on the GT-VX1?
A 65 HP Rotax 582 is by far the most popular engine used on this aircraft. We also have engine mounts to adapt to a Hirth 3203.
