This VL3 evolution is equipped with a Rotax 915iS, Airmaster propeller, manual flaps and cargo door. Let’s have a closer look at our plane of the week. The interior design is made from the very popular camel leather. The client also chose to combinate the seats with perforated and unperforated material which gives the seats a very elegant look.
The exterior design is from Ultimate Free & Limited 915iS edition, which means that this exterior design is possible only for 915iS engines. We used the colours BMW Misano Blue C1D, Moon White Skoda, Porsche Dark Grey and touches of Magic Black on the plane. Adding to the uniqueness of this aircraft are the avionics.
There has to be a first time for everything, and the prop controller you see is connected to an Airmaster prop. It’s the first one ever installed on a Vl3, and we’re curious to see how it will manage the mountainous New Zealand terrain.
Due to the quality of maps for New Zealand, Dynon was the only choice for avionics. SkyView HDX-1100 touch is the flagship avionics system from Dynon. SkyView HDX features improved displays, beautiful design, unrivalled control ergonomics, and an upgraded touch interface. It’s nice to see something a little different in a VL3.
