version is a perfect choice for flying schools in countries where
ultra-light categories (ULA, UL, ULM) are already in the skies. This
category limits the take-off weight to 450 kg and empty weight
(without BRS) usually to 280 kg (600 lbs). 3Xtrim 450-UL is similar
in concept and construction to 3Xtrim 550-VLA, with the exception
that weight has been reduced by extensive use of carbon fibre
reinforced composites and omission of some equipment and furnishing.
Reduced weight makes it possible to propel the airplane with a Rotax
912A engine providing continuous power of 79 HP (5 min. peak power
81 HP). A two-blade propeller, 3Xtrim 170 type, with a diameter of
1.7 m, is adjustable on the ground
