  • Aviakit Vega 3000

    • - Views: 20
    • The Aviakit Véga is an ultralight aircraft seating two in side-by-side configuration.

    Roland Prevot started Aviakit to produce kits for home building of his two-seat, side-by-side configuration, ultralight design, originally named the Aviakit Hermès. It was intended as an ultralight that could be quite quickly (300 hours) assembled by inexperienced constructors. In September 2001 production rights were acquired by PJB Aerocomposite and the aircraft renamed the Aviakit Véga 2000 or Aerocomposite Véga 2000 but the arrangement ran into financial difficulties and in June 2004 Aviakit were reformed to produce what has since been known as the Aviakit Véga 3000.


    It was designed in France in the late 1990s to be easily constructed by amateurs from kits and was offered with a choice of three engines and of tricycle or conventional undercarriages.
