The product: Introduced in 2011, the Pelican Sport AULA is a single engine side by side two seater high wing aircraft that features a fixed gear. We offer the Pelican Sport AULA as a Ready To Fly aircraft for the Canadian Advanced UltraLight Aircraft (AULA) category. The maximum gross weight in this category is limited to 560 Kg (1 232 lbs). The Pelican Sport AULA is in fact our regular Pelican Sport 600 aircraft fully assembled in our Canadian facility that comes in specific configurations that are optimized for the training of the ultralight pilots.
The Pelican Sport is not new to the market and it benefits from more than 25 years of evolution and refinements. This worldwide recognized product is a pure Canadian design exclusively manufactured in Canada. The Pelican Sport is renowned for its flying qualities, its robustness and its low cost of operation. Our Aircrafts are designed to the DS10141-V03 Advanced UltraLight Aircraft Design Standard that was developed by the industry, approved by Transport Canada and is now maintained by the Light Aircraft Manufacturer Association of Canada (LAMAC). Our Pelican Sport AULA is now listed on the official Transport Canada List, see link http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/standards/general-ccarcs-advancedullist-2036.htm ,
of models eligible to be registered as Advanced UltraLight Aeroplanes in Canada.
The Pelican Sport AULA features a robust and comfortable composite fuselage well adapted for cross-country flying. Professionally designed, its intelligent blend of composite and metal has inspired aircraft designers for the past two decades. It also features all metal flying surfaces and its wing is of single spar single strut construction. Its high lift wing airfoil combined with a STOL kit, offers good STOL characteristics while sporting a cruising speed of 115 kts when motorised by a BRP Rotax 912 ULS (100 HP) engine. The STOL characteristics are achieved by a dual control horn mechanism that lowers the ailerons by 15° when flaps are full down. The aircraft offers exciting performance, nice cruising speed, great handling, solid feel and superb economy. Cabin is spacious and comfortable, instrument panel can accomodate full IFR but remains low for the front sight, and combined with its two sky lights and two side windows in the baggage compartment it provides very good visibility in all three axis. Dual stick, dual side pedal set, dual differential braking system and fixed tricycle gear are standard on this natural trainer.
