A Video Review of the Sirius by Plane Old Ben

A Video Review of the Sirius by Plane Old Ben

A fantastic video review of the Sirius owned by Pete Ronfell and hangared at Blackpool in the North West UK.

A great insight into a GA pilot’s first ever flight in a “Light Sport Aircraft”. Experience a short local flight with Plane Old Ben from YouTube, on his first flight in an aircraft of this type.

What started off as a “no – fly” fogged in morning at Blackpool airport, turned out to be an exhilarating flight for Ben in the Sirius light sport aircraft!

FLIGHT TEST…

For once, let’s start in the air. The aircraft’s owner and I are straight-and level in a bright blue sky, with a light wind and a few fair-weather cumuli below. The aircraft is sipping 12 litres per hour in exchange for 98kt, and we’re in a very well-appointed cockpit with comfortable
side-by-side seating, under a large tinted canopy. We’re in G-ZIZY, a carbon-composite TL Sting S4 owned by Richard and Cindy Reeves. Magic!

‘The next generation brings new possibilities,’ claims TL’s advertising, and I’m here to see whether that’s simply another marketing phrase which rolls over your consciousness without making any impression, like water
off a duck’s back, or whether it actually possesses some substance. Cindy and Richard were on the ownership learning curve with four previous aircraft before arriving at the decision to buy the S4. Their first was an X-Air, a high-wing microlight which suited them well until they wanted something faster for more serious touring.

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 we averaged 11 liters per hour !

When my Sting S4 was test flown by Dave Unwin, for “Pilot”  magazine, he said it was “Ultralight Perfection”.

I can’t disagree with him.

sting-1I 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 not cramped at all.sting-2

The performance is equal to larger aircraft with much larger engines but the Rotax only sips away your fuel which is MOGAS!

Very Nice Aircraft!

“I have toured France a number of times from Normandy to La Baule in the remarkable Sting S3. 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.”
