Seagull ultralight trike "Escape Pod"

The Seagull is an ultralight trike, designed for a hang glide style wing, and can be used for soaring or cross country cruising depending on the wing used.

According to Michael Riggs is President and Founder of Seagull Aerosports the Seagull was designed "starting from a clean piece paper, trying to change the trike genre."

The Seagull uses all composite, graphite construction, making it light weight and strong, thus applying "Lancair technology to the bottom of the flying food chain." For the trike pilot this translates to comfort and efficiency.

The Seagull is equipped with manually retractable landing gear, and all three wheels using only quality sailboat style pulleys and blocks. The main gear retracts up into the area behind the pilot and the nose wheel into a wheel well above the wheel.

The pilot canopy opens forward for entrance and exit, and locks for flight, with the control bar running through openings in the side. Neoprene side covers are available to close off the control bar area for cold weather, or competition flying.

The Seagull is using the Northwing Stratos for soaring, and the Northwing Pacer for cross country flying. Power is being supplied by the electric start equipped Italia GPX Black Devil 25 horsepower single cylinder two stroke engine. Michael reports that this engine is very smooth and quiet.

With the GPX engine and the Stratos wing climb rate comes in at 400 feet per minute, cruise speed comes in at between 45 and 70 mph depending on the wing used. Glide ratio with engine shut off and gear retracted comes in a between 15 and 17 to 1.

The Seagull is Part 103 legal. Base price of the ready to fly units includes a BRS parachute, engine, and instruments. The Seagull is only sold through a dealer network to ensure that the pilot is qualified to fly this style of craft.

The Seagull has been under development for four years, and several are currently being completed for customers.
