It is refreshing to see that even with the introduction of the new Light Sport Aircraft Category, some manufacturers will still be supplying legal Part 103 ultralight aircraft to U.S. customers.

Robbins Enterprises of Staples MN introduced three new designs at Airventure. Two of these the R 7 and R 8 can be built as legal ultralights, or new sport aircraft.

The third model the R 8 can only be offered in the Experimental or Light Sport Category because of it's weight and speed.

All three aircraft are developed from the same building concept, a concept that has been used in the gyrocopter industry for years, that is the use of square aluminum tubing bolted together. This coupled with a Bi-Plane design provides a strong Part 103 U.S. legal ultralight  which is compact, light weight, and can withstand higher loadings than a typical strut braced monoplane design.

All three models are offered in a standard kit format, or Quick Build, with the ultralight versions available as pre-built ready to fly. In kit format the planes should take 200 hours to build with no jigging required. The plane is powered by a Rotax 447, 60 mph cruise, stall 30 without flaps, climb rate 700 feet per minute. The planes have been built since 2001, and the proto type has over 200 hours on it.
