The X-AIR "S" (Standard), first born of the X-air family, is a conventional control aircraft which conforms to the category defined by the Director General Of Civil Aviation (DGCA) as a MICROLIGHT AIRCRAFT. By definition, a MICROLIGHT AIRCRAFT is a fixed wing aircraft, with a maximum all up weight not exceeding 450 Kg, and not designed to carry more than 2 persons on board. The advantage of the Microlight category is that, as aircraft have to be built to lower weight limits, and as they are generally non-aerobatics & fly at lower speeds than conventional aircraft, the construction techniques used are simpler and less expensive than conventional aircraft. Thus they are cheaper in capital cost, as well as Operational & Maintenance Costs. Microlight Aircraft are a practical choice for Individual Owners who fly as a Hobby, as well as for Basic Training for fresh students.
The X-AIR has earned the British SECTION "S" Certification.
