After three years of development, the prototype of a two-seat aircraft side by side has flown in the hands of test pilot Kai Schülter. The device, called HX-2, is one of the novelties presented at the AERO 2019 show in Friedrichshafen.
This aircraft is a highly modern economical two-seat tailless light aircraft without a fuselage.
“Due to its low aerodynamic resistance, the flying wing flies farther and faster than a comparable aircraft with a fuselage,” says Bernhard Mattlener, managing director of the company, a part of the LIFT Air group. “The design of the airframe makes it easily adaptable for installing new propulsion technologies we anticipate will become available in the future.”
