Pico L, the wing for solo trikes

The 2007 created UL-class 120kg (165 Lbs), (trike + wing + safety system), opened for many pilots, who want to fly without a lot of preparation, logistics and expense, an entry into motorized flight. The license requires no medical examination and no minimum airtime anymore. The aircraft must still be class-inspected, but a class-license is not required anymore.

To stay within the weight limits an efficient, maximal 40 kg (88 Lbs) heavy UL-wing was needed, with a wide attainable flying speed range, easy handling and which guarantied absolute safe flying characteristics.

For the Pico L (L=leicht/light) we installed the successful sail of the Pico S on a newly designed, lighter frame and had instant success. Testpilots were enthusiastic!

The wing weighs 39 kg (86 Lbs) and is certified for a launch weight of 238 kg (525 Lbs).

The Pico L offers performance, which years ago no two-place trike with strong engines could realize.

The Pico L flies with the Bautek-Skycruiser-Trike over 130 km/h (80 mph) top speed, travel speed is 90 km/h (56 mph), min. sink is 1,6 m/sec (315 ft/min), max. climb is 3-4 m/sec (600-800 ft/min), landing speed is under 45 km/h (28 mph), fuel consumption 3,5 l/std. (0.925 gal/hr). The wing is used also on other trikes and sets the standard in the 120 kg class.
