Allegro Manufacturer www.allegrolsa.co
This new Allegro model designated Allegro
2007 was born by the collaboration of Fantasy Air, the Kabrt brothers from Vanessa Air and the
Czech Technical University in Prague mostly acting on the feedback and wish
list from current owners and flying schools who are using
the Allegro lightsport aircraft for training.
The Allegro manufacturer, Allegro LSA, have enjoyed years of
booming sales with their original aircraft released in 2000
and the new 2007 model is expected to continue their progress on
the world stage.
The already roomy fuselage which is almost
100 mm wider than a Cessna 172 has been completely
redesigned; the cockpit has now been made even wider with
the addition of another 100 mm of elbow room. The wing
mounting position has been lifted around 80 mm giving much
more headroom so that even people over 190 cm tall still fit
comfortably into the aircraft with good roof clearance and
by moving the wing higher, the door opening has also been
made taller making it easier for some of our older customers
who are losing flexibility in the joints to get in and out
of the aircraft.
Fantasy Air have
also developed new doors which are semi-domed and are now
supported in the open position by a single gas strut. The
single piece semi-domed doors provides the crew with still
more shoulder and elbow room and also offers an improved
view below and to the rear of the aircraft.
The seats are now comfortably adjustable
in height and also in sliding back and forwards. Each person
can easily reach the instruments when buckled up and the
back and forwards seat adjustment can even be completed in
flight. The track of the rudder pedals has also been
increased together with leverage on the rudder bellcranks
and arms making directional control much more positive and
comfortable by providing more space for the feet and
reducing rudder forces.
Standard fuel capacity has been increased
from 55 to 63 L thanks to the wider fuselage; the optional
wing tanks add an additional 20 L per side giving the total
usable fuel quantity of 100 L.
The rear of the fuselage has now been
totally redesigned on the new 2007 model with the original
vertical tail fillet now gone and integrated into the rear
fuselage shape which now offers a larger diameter rear
fuselage section and an increased vertical stabilizer area
approximately 50% larger than the original aircraft. This
has the effect of giving the aircraft more directional
stability in turbulence and eliminates the need to
coordinate rudder and aileron in turns, now a lazy customer
can simply turn the aircraft on either aileron or rudder
Even with the sales success of the Allegro
2007 model the manufacturer hasn't rested on their laurels.
Allegro LSA listens to feedback from customers and dealers
and continually introduces minor changes to aircraft to suit
the individual markets around the world. Recently the
Allegro has gained certification for towing sailplanes
amongst other uses such as Banner towing and they are also
in the final stages of certification for a weight increase
from the current 520 kgs up to 600 kg MTOW.
