sailplane MCR CLUB The MCR ULC specifications were established in 1996, defining it as an ultra-light airplane based on the FAI requirements.
First flight was done in April 1997 Based on the VLA design, with the same fuselage and engine installation, the FAI ultra-light MCR-ULC was specifically designed for fast cruise and optimized for slow approach speeds.
The ULC characteristics lie in its unique wing design, involving a greater span and area, as well as split double slotted fowler flaps and ailerons This sophisticated wing concept allows the MCR ULC to reach an unprecedented maximum to stall speed ratio of 4, although it guarantees a very gentle behavior in rough air conditions and a high safety level.
The MCR ULC can be equipped with a choice of different power plants, but may also be fitted with other options such as:
Ballistic Recovery System parachute
Oil Pneumatic under carriage (for intensive use)
Extended ferrying fuel
Toe operated Hydraulic brakes
Fuselage footsteps
The MCR ULC can be delivered in kit, or ready-to-fly.
The MCR ULC is available in a kit form in respect with the CNSK regulation (specific kit airworthiness certificate) or in the “experimental” category, depending on the registration country.
Ready-to-fly delivered aircraft are in the Ultra-light category.
