  • Eurofox Information

    Use this part of the forum to discuss any aspects of the Eurofox.
    The aircraft is very close to final technical approval to section S by the BMAA for 450 and 475 kgs, nose wheel and tail wheel. First demonstrator hoped to be in the UK end May/Early June.

    A 560kg version (identical aircraft, just no empty weight restriction), is at a similar process level via the LAA

    VERY good article in the LAA mag this month, looks like being an aircraft with potential!

      Hello Richard

      Glad you liked the LAA write up and think the Eurofox has potential. Shame MF refused the same article (albeit with the BMAA work to date listed, not the LAA), so microlighters cant see the progress

        Hi Roger, I too was impressed by the article on the Eurofox.Is it your intention to market a tail dragger in the microlight class? Any idea of empty weight?

          Hello Pete, glad you liked the article.

          Yes its available at 450 and 472 as a micro. Been technically approved to section S by the BMAA office. Exact empty weight not yet defined, but 268-270 kg on the 450 and about 290 kg on the 472 version has been discussed with the BMAA office.

          a 560 LAA version will be here next month, nose wheel. Starting with this one, then next will be a 450 or 472 tail dragger (for me!). All aircraft are identical, just differenciated by the empty weight allowance, and therefore the extras allowable.

          all info is on the website and contact me off forum if you need more specific details

          regards

              Good for you Barry !

              I totally agree. Anyone with half a brain should realise we must get out of Europe !

                The Eurofox take-up seems very promising Roger, several now on G-INFO.
                They must make a much more economic glider tug than the old avgas guzzling GA types.
                good luck for continued success with the type.

                    Just an update on how the EuroFox scene is getting along.

                    I recieved my microlight kit in November 2012 and after an enjoyable winter spent in my workshop I have now finished it. The paperwork has been sent off and I now am now waiting for the permit to test to arrive. The support from both Roger and Adrian I cannot fault.

                    As you can see it is all loaded up and waiting to go flying. Roll on some good weather.

                    Nick.

                        Hi There,

                        I have at last got my permit and managed to organize a familiarization flight. All went well and I had no trouble using my left hand (stop sniggering in the cheap seats)! So it is now practice, practice, practice at slow flying and getting it all set up for landing. All I need now is time.

                        See the proof. More pictures here. http://www.eurofoxuk.co.uk/

                          How did you manage to balance it on that wire?

                            Perfect Weight and Balance.

                            What else would you expect with such a quality aircraft!
