Airborne Edge 582 XT

Shane Duncan of Airborne Australia, was with his U.S. representatives Scott and Terri Johnson at Airventure with the latest Airborne model the Edge X 582.

Airborne has been supplying the world with trikes now for over 20 years, and have delivered nearly 1500 hundred units to customers worldwide.

After a number of years and of research and development Airborne introduced a new trike designed around the Rotax 912 series of engines called the Airborne 912 XT. Due to the increased weight of the 912 engines a new trike had to be designed that kept the center of mass lower in the airframe, and a new wing had to be developed to handle the additional horsepower.

Once the 912 XT had completed it's certification program, and a number were delivered to customers, the feedback was that the craft was excellent, BUT with the 912 was a little expensive.

The factory then decided to refit the XT with the new Rotax 65 HP Bluehead 582 twin cylinder two stroke aircraft engine.

With the lower weight and horsepower it was also decided to design a new cruise wing for th XT 582, which has a higher lift and slightly slower cruise than the Streak 3 than would normally be found on the 912 series of craft.

The XT 582 with the new Cruise wing cruises at 50 to 55 knots, climb comes in at a comfortable 750 to 800 feet per minute. The XT series of trikes is only offered as a factory built ready to fly unit. The major reason for this is the certification, and quality control process it has to go through in Australia. Each aircraft is individually certified, and test flown before it leaves the factory.

The units are then broken down for shipping to dealers. Aircraft being delivered to the U.S. have their rear suspension and propeller removed and then are well packed into wooded boxes which are designed to be moved by forklifts. The wings are broken down into 12 to 14 foot bag for transport.

Once in the U.S. dealers reassemble them and on completion send an assembly check form back to the factory. These dealers then ensure that the new owners are properly trained on their craft.

The Airborne X series of trikes come with digital instrumentation, which gives readouts on all temperatures, pressures, fuel flows, and analog airspeed indicator.

U.S. Airborne Distributor Scott Johnson has been working with Airborne Australia for over twelve years, and was trained by the factory. He operates a full service flight park out of Asotin Washington, offering flight training, hangars, tie down, camping facilities. In addition he offers training at clients facilities as well.

The Airborne X series meet the requirements for Light Sport Aircraft.
