Belite Aircraft Kits are available as an FAR Part 103 ultralight aircraft and can be built as experimental. The standard Kit is a taildragger, but
a tricycle gear option is available.
|Aluminum Rear Fuselage
The Belite Kit is straightforward aluminum construction. The aluminum fuselage is a riveted construction with 6061T6 aluminum in critical areas. Other alloys are also used. The wings are built with aluminum spars and CNC cut Baltic birch ribs.
All of the cabin area and most of the gussets have pre-drilled holes, and the rear fuselage is pre-aligned, mostly pre-drilled and ready for you to start drilling and riveting. All main cabin bulkhead formers and gussets are CNC cut and have many pre-drilled pilot holes as well. The builder has to trim some of the cabin longerons and members, but as these lengths are short, and all formers are square, the resulting assembly process is easy and straightforward. Aluminum may be cut with carbide blade table saw, a band saw, or a hack saw.
Everything slips together and is locked in place with glue. Alum
inum ribs and carbon fiber spars are also available. Tailfeathers include an aerodynamic horizontal stabilizer/elevator. They are easy to build like a big model airplane wing.
