A Tall Order – with a Sirius Solution

“ I regret to inform you that your body measurements are outside the acceptable limits for all forms of flying training” That was the RAF’s impertinent response when I applied to join from school in 1975 - I’m only 6’7” for heaven’s sake - and at the other end of my flying career this heightism still lurks in the design of microlights and GA aircraft.Two exceptions I’ve found are Flight Design with their CT series and the TL Ultralight Sirius. I’ve been lucky to have a share in CTSW ...

Paul & Peter – N.W. U.K.

We have flown the Sirius demonstrator from the TL-Ultralight factory in the Czech Republic across to the UK for the LAA rally at Sywell on two occasions. The first trip was an eye opener as we flew from Hradic Kralove, through the Republic, across the whole of Germany and half of France to land at Nancy. In the event we didn’t need further fuel and with plenty of daylight left continued to Abbeville. A total of 6 hours 20 minutes of very enjoyable, comfortable and stress free “touring”. I recall...

Alan – Preston, Lancs

I have owned a Sting TL2000 for 2 years now and it is a fantastic aircraft.  The Sting is easy to handle both in the air and on the ground.  Short field performance is excellent, I operate out of a 350m grass strip. Low speed handling is very good which is important when landing in a short grass field.  Fuel capacity is 80 Lts,  which gives me 5 hours endurance at 90 knots.  The Rotax 912ULS is faultless, the cockpit is surprisingly quiet looks smart and sporty.  Lots of room for 2 adults and no...

Not only is it an excellent touring aircraft with generous shoulder and leg room, but the short field performance to take advantage of microlight strips is just superb. I also fly Cessna and Piper aircraft so the frugal fuel consumption using Mogas is a revelation.” Pete E. Lancashire
