Foxbat Australia delivers 100th Foxbat!Date: 27 Apr 2013
Tyabb Airfield, 21st April 2013 – Foxbat Australia celebrates delivery of the 100th factory built Aeroprakt A22 Foxbat in Australia. New owners, Heather and Bill Haynes from Caboolture Recreational Aviation received the keys from Yuriy Yakovlyev, CEO of Aeroprakt Limited and designer of the A22, who had travelled from Kiev in Ukraine specially for the celebration. The event was attended by past, current and future Foxbat owners as well as representatives from suppliers and other aviation organisations which have helped to make the Foxbat such a success.
The 100th Foxbat will be available for training and hire at Caboolture Airfield, on the Sunshine Coast to the north of Brisbane in Queensland. ‘We bought the aircraft primarily for flying training because it’s easy to fly and has a great view out. The safe handling and short take-off and landing capabilities are also attractive to many of our customers,’ said Heather and Bill.
Apart from his duties at Aeroprakt, Yuriy and his co-pilot son are the current European Ultralight Precision Flying Champions.
Yuriy has the final word: ‘there is only one danger with this aircraft,’ he says, ‘when you have one you’ll fall in love with it and never want to fly anything else.’ As a champion pilot, he probably knows what he’s talking about!

MTOW decals for Foxbat ownersDate: 29 Dec 2012
In the past, Foxbat Australia understood that under the LSA regulations, a decal showing Maximum Take Off Weight (MTOW) was not required on LSA aircraft. However, RA-Aus now requires this decal to be affixed to the instrument panel of all LSA aircraft - you will find this out when you apply for renewal of your registration, when RA-Aus will request a photo of the panel, with the decal in place.
As a service to all A22LS Foxbat owners, I can provide one of these decals free of charge - just email me with your Foxbat serial number, registration number and your postal address and I'll mail you a decal - free of charge!
