Version 2 of the A22.

Listening to all the feedback from our version 1 of the A22, we decided to go back and rebuild the A22 from the ground up. We have removed the electronic flight instruments and replaced them with analog gauges, remodelled and retextured the entire aircraft. The phone gadget has been removed and replaced it with a paper checklist located on the lower central console, aft of the throttle. Using this checklist you can now select KPH on the speed gauge, and also activate static elements.

Features:

  • 2 verions, with or without wheel-fairings
  • Static elements turned on or off using in-cockpit checklist
  • Switch between ASI units using in-cockpit checklist
  • Flaperons modelled
  • Multiple liveries
  • Controller-friendly
  • Realistic flight-model based on real-world data
  • Easy to master, fun to fly

The A-22LS is a single-engine, high-wing, twin-seat ultralight airplane manufactured by Ukrainian aviation producer Aeroprakt. The A-22LS, which is called the Valor in the United States and the Foxbat in the United Kingdom and Australia, took its first flight on October 21, 1996, was introduced in 1999, and continues to be produced to this day. The A-22LS has earned a strong reputation as an excellent trainer and general sport airplane due to its ease of handling, great cockpit visibility, and its short takeoff and landing (STOL) ability.

The airplane features a main wing with a span of 33 feet, 1.75 inches, side-by-side enclosed seating, tricycle landing gear, and a traditional empennage. It is powered by a Rotax 912ULS flat-4 engine that produces up to 100 horsepower and drives a 3-blade Aeroprakt ground-adjustable propeller in tractor configuration.

The A-22LS has a top speed of 126 miles per hour, cruises at 104 mph, and has a stall speed of 32. It boasts an impressive range of 683 miles, can climb at 984 feet per minute, and has a service ceiling of 16,000 feet above sea level.

The Aeroprakt A-22LS is a remarkably well-balanced design that allows anyone from a novice pilot to a seasoned aviator to have memorable, classic flying experiences time and again. Exceedingly forgiving in operation from takeoff to landing, the A-22LS is an ideal machine to explore the world from above.
