Rainbow Sport Aviation of Mississauga Ontario introduced the 3X55 at Airventure 2006. The 3X55, is an all composite aircraft. It utilizes standard three axis dual controls, with flaps.

Seating is side by side in a very spacious 47 inch wide cabin. The cabin has two air vents in the top of the windshield and on the side doors.

The 3X55 instrument panel will allow for the installation of all the toys a pilot could wish for. Two storage areas are located above and behind each seat, with an additional baggage area behind the left hand seat.

The large doors which make for easy entrance and exit are hinged at the top and are supported by gas struts. The doors have an emergency exit feature which allows the pilot to pull an emergency handle located inside the cabin which releases the complete door to allow exit in an emergency situation. A fire extinguisher is also provided as standard equipment.

The 3X55 uses dual joy sticks and two throttles one located in the center, the other on the left hand side of the instrument panel. Toe brakes are also located on the left hand side rudder pedals. The flap handle is located in the center of the plane just above the pilots head.

The 3X55 is a tricycle gear with a steerable nose wheel operated off of the foot pedals. The rugged main landing gear is composite. The wings can be removed in a matter of minutes by two people by unhooking two quick release aileron control rods, and pulling specially designed pins located at the root of the wing, and the end of the strut.

Power is supplied by the Rotax 912 S, 100 HP aircraft engine. Cruise comes in at around 70 knots. Stall with flaps comes in well below 45 mph with no tendency to drop a wing.
