The Aerolite 103 is an American single seat, high-wing, pusher configuration ultralight aircraft, designed by Terry Raber The aircraft’s model number indicates that it was designed to comply with the Federal Aviation Administration FAR 103 ultralight rules. The Aerolite 103 features a high wing with half-span flaps that are extended by use of an overhead bellcrank to a maximum of 40 degrees. The flight controls are three-axis and are actuated by a wheel mounted on a control column via flexible push-pull cables and conventional rudder pedals connected to the rudder by cables. The engine throttle is a twist-grip type and incorporates a brake lever to operate the non-differential hydraulic disc brakes installed on the main wheels of the tricycle landing gear. The aircraft has conventional nose wheel steering connected to the rudder pedals. The main landing gear utilizes sprung-tubes for suspension and absorbing landing loads. There is a fourth small caster-wheel under the tail, because when the pilot’s seat is unoccupied the aircraft rests on its tail, due to the aircraft’s empty center of gravity. characteristics Crew: one Capacity: no passengers Length: 17 ft (5.19 m) Wingspan: 26 ft 10 in (8.18 m) Height: 6 ft 5 in (1.96 m) Wing area: 124 sq ft (11.54 sq m) Empty weight: 275 lb (125 kg) Useful load: 325 lb (147 kg) Max. takeoff weight: 600 lb (272 kg) Powerplant: 1 × Rotax 447 fixed pitch, 40 hp (30 kW) Propellers: 1 propeller, 1 per engine Performance Never exceed speed: 75 mph (122 km/h) Maximum speed: 70 mph (113 km/h) Cruise speed: 63 mph (102 km/h) Stall speed: 35 mph (57 km/h) Rate of climb: 800 ft/min (4.1 m/s) Wing loading: 4.83 lb/sq ft (23.6 kg/sq m) Power/mass: 15 lb/hp (0.11 kW/kg)
