ADVANTAGES OF THE CYGNET and EXPLORER

Stability on water is like a pontoon boat vs a typical v-hull boat   Amphibious capabilities allows land or water operations In case of engine failure you can glide and land on either land or water. See video: Power-Off Landing Wing set-up from transportation mode only takes 7 minutes (watch the video) Wing never has to be removed from trike when trailering Very compact, fits in many garages (8′ high, 96″ wide, 20′ long) Our large tundra tires allows trike to taxi on soft sand Our frame configuration allows for a “roomy” rear seat We have dual controls for flight training Pod and windshield blocks most of the wind Refuel at any gas station or marina Great for fishing!
