Nothing can compare to the adrenaline rush of flying a weight shift amphibious trike over clear blue water and sandy beaches. The Airtime Aircraft Cygnet, a Special Light Sport Aircraft (SLSA), is the ultimate all terrain aerial vehicle. Unlike many weight shift trikes, the tandem, two seat design allows a passenger to share in the adventure, too! Check out Evelyne’s first Cygnet flight below:
Pilots find the Cygnet to be a budget friendly aircraft due to low maintenance costs and the 4.2 gallons per hour average fuel burn. Furthermore, the 100 horsepower Rotax engine offers a 4-hour endurance cruising at 50 miles per hour. If you are eager to get the most out of your flying day, the Cygnet takes as little as 20 minutes to remove from its custom trailer and set up. In addition, the ability to depart from land or sea increases the pilot’s flexibility of departure point.
