Discover Your e-Go at AeroExpo
AeroExpo UK is pleased to welcome the exclusive debut appearance of e-Go at this year’s AeroExpo UK event at Sywell Aerodrome during 31st May – 2nd June 2013.
The e-Go is a single seat plane that’s stylish and exciting to fly – with a 100 knot cruise and handling like a fighter. The pilot has a spacious cockpit, with a panoramic view and a simple, ergonomic layout. The display provides flight data, engine monitoring, navigation and check lists. It can fly from the UK’s many grass farm strips and can be dismantled quickly into its custom trailer – no hanger required.
In the UK, the e-Go is de-regulated, so it costs little to run, as there are no certification or permit fees. It can be maintained by the owner, third party insurance is cheap and it requires only a microlight pilot’s licence.
The e-Go uses the unusual ‘canard’ configuration, which reduces drag and weight and prevents a full stall. It’s made from a state-of-the-art carbon fibre and foam structure that keeps the weight to just 115Kg ready to fly.It is powered by a new rotary Wankel engine from Rotron in Dorset – the Rotron e-Go. This has an advanced electronic fuel injection. Its few parts promise good reliability and low maintenance costs. It weighs only 18 Kg and propels the e-Go at about 60 MPG. The avionics are based on the MGL iEFIS, integrated with the Rotron ECU and the e-Go’s data acquisition system.
The project grew from winning an LAA design competition in 2007. The demand for it became self-evident, and so the e-Go project was born. The prototype e-Go will make its debut at AeroExpo.
