    Hi Nev my replys on this forum are restricted due to not being an official advertiser (something I am considering) you can continue through my website if you like, There will be some weight increase agreed but estimates are that it won't impact the MTOW significantly and a steerable nose wheel is the preference I am considering MTOW may be increased to 600kg under LSA which is another step I may take as well as it complies to LSA rules. regards John

    Hi Nev it would not be a problem, due to it being similar to the Gazelle and the reduction of the Tailwheel and spring, bearing in mind that the Jabiru 4 cly version needs a bit extra wt on the nose anyway it works out very well, the Rotax 912 is the perfect wt and with the nosewheel it could be easily compensated for simply by battery placement Hope this helps Rgds John

    Hi all, the nose wheel version is still under consideration, and could be implemented for firm orders, there is no problem with doing it, just that nobody has committed to one so I am surprised at the lack of interest in the nose wheel version so I am hesitant about investing the $ to do it right now considering the GFC situation. regards John Cotton
  5. ;) Thanks mate ... so am I !!!

  8. :)Hi to all, it's about time I joined some forums so my customers tell me ! I learnt to fly in a Skyfox, Lightwing and Jabiru and Aeropups of course, this forum may make it easier to keep in touch to answer any questions I am still working out all the site's intricacys, and trying to link it to the facebook site of Aeropup Aircraft. To clarify a point that some folk seem to miss.... the Supapup Mk 4 was the only single seater produced by us, the Mk 1, 2, and 3 (all single seaters) where produced by a previous company. The Mk 4 can be identified by the simple fact that it was the only model of single seater with folding wings. The Aeropup name was adopted to differentiate the twin seater (side by side) all of which had the fast fold wing system as standard.

  14. Hi Alan yes I remember, due to the GFC I had to close for a while but all is going ahead with Aeropup production, AND here in Austalia not overseas we think we can contain costs using smart engineering so the reduced website price still holds and I dont see it going up even though steel may rise, time will tell. regards John
