A22LS Foxbat

The A22LS is the load carrier of the Foxbat family. Powered by the 4-stroke liquid-cooled Rotax 912ULS 100 hp engine, it is perfect for flying training, two-up touring and for the sport pilot who often flies with a friend. It comes standard with long range tanks, giving it a duration of over 6 hours with a reserve.

It has a legal carrying capacity of around 290 kilos, although the airframe is stressed to be safe to carry up to around 340 kilos. This weight includes the pilot, passenger/co-pilot, fuel and baggage.

Its empty weight is around 310 kilos, so with 100 hp to play with, there’s plenty of performance available. Take-off and landing distances are a little longer than the A22L but still typically under 75 metres at MTOW.
