Exterior Design

Most people look at the SportCruiser and think it’s just another composite aircraft. But unlike other light sport airplanes, this is an all-metal aircraft with true ramp appeal.

The SportCruiser includes electronic trim on the ailerons and the elevator. And its lightweight, all-metal structure, is easy to repair.

Fuel tanks are located in each wing with a capacity of 15 gallons. 

With the SportCruiser, you’ll be flying a light sport aircraft you’re not embarrassed to fly.

SportCruiser Engine

On top of its low operating costs, the SportCruiser is one of the most affordable airplanes on the market. If you’re a flight school, you’ll be able to purchase multiple SportCruisers instead of one Cessna 172, Piper Archer or Diamond DA40.
