Explorer L-103 Amphibious Trike
Explorer L-103 Ultralight amphibious trike
This single place trike is legal to fly under Part 103 of the Federal Aviation Regulations with no license required. It features a North Maverick strutted folding wing, 40 hp engine and world-renowned Krucker floats with retractable landing gear.
The Krucker float and amphib setup is designed specifically for trikes with the step moved farther forward than conventional floats. This eliminates porpoising common with other floats.
The floats are produced from 5052 aluminium the same as that used in aluminium boat construction. They are corrosion resistant, have four air tight seamless chambers, and cross bracing.
In flight the floats fly with a 2 degree angle of attack which decreases drag and allows the trike to fly virtually the same as it would if equipped with wheels only. Water rudders operated by cables are also included with the floats.
All amphibious trikes are outfitted with retractable wheels for easy retraction and extension in flight. Drive right into the water on your wheels, retract them, and take off on floats.
For more information contact:
The wing folds for easy transport and storage. It takes about 15 easy minutes to set up for flight.
