The award-winning Aeroprakt A22 Foxbat is an amazing short take-off and landing (STOL), metal airframe, Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) with a huge 2-seat cabin and a good turn of cruise speed.
For training or touring the aircraft will typically (and legally!) carry around 285 kgs, equal to two good-sized people, plus full fuel - and still have capacity for 25 kgs+ of luggage.
It is a perfect aircraft for Australian rugged outback conditions – including mustering and other station activities. With a trained pilot, it will take off in less than 60 metres and land in the same distance. And costs about a quarter of a helicopter to buy and run.
If water is your thing, the A22LS Foxbat Amphibian is equally happy on pond or paddock.
With a 100kts+ cruise, 32kts stall, renowned Rotax engine reliability and a 6+ hour duration, there aren’t many places a Foxbat can’t take you!
