    Thruster T600 Market.

    Just a flying thought.

    It would be a pity to see the good old Thruster Design dissapear.

    So, is there still a place in the market for the good sturdy trustworthy Thruster T600 ?

    Would a 582 version sell ?

    Would a Jabiru one sell better ?

    Would other alterations to the basic design and other options make it more attractive. ?

    What are people thoughts ?

    Regards
    Mark ( who was brought upon TST's and T600's )

    How about a 503 powered single seater with wing fold?

    Can you still buy a 503? UK Rotax importer only lists the 582 Blue Top.

    I doubt One Sky (who own Thruster UK) would be likely to invest in any redesign, but there could possibly be a market for someone with a suitable aero engineering design background to sell a kit which would allow an existing TST to be turned into what you're asking for. It'd almost be the Thruster marque returning to its roots.

    There might even be enough of a market then for taildragger instructors to keep a two-seat Thruster for the conversion training.
