Acrolite 1T tri-plane light sport aircraft, by Acrolite Aircraft Kakabeka Falls Ontario Canada.

Ron Wilson built a tri-plane because "no one has designed and built a new tri-plane since WW1 so why not?" Using his award winning light sport aircraft the Acrolite as a starting point, Ron began to design and build the Acrolite 1T Tri-plane.
Of course one of the advantages he had was in the new stronger, lighter weight materials available today. While the construction is basically the same as the Acrolite a fibreglass skin is used instead of plywood on the wings, for a much smoother surface.

Power for the proto type 1T is supplied by a Rotax 582, 65 HP liquid cooled engine using a 2.58 to 1 reduction drive and a two blade wood prop. Controls are standard three axis, stick and rudder, with the ailerons located on the CENTER wings only. According to Ron aileron response is a little sluggish initially, and the roll rate is not as fast as the bi-plane, but the turning radius is a lot smaller.

Cruise comes in at around 90 mph, and the Acrolite 1T powered by the Rotax 582 will nearly stay with the Rotax 80 HP 912 equipped Acrolite bi-plane in a 1,000 foot climb out. Stall recovery requires the pilot to use proper stall recovery technique, and on landing the tri-plane does not have the tendency to float in ground effect like the bi-plane version.
