Belite Aircraft Kits are available as a homebuilt kit that qualifies as an FAR part 103 ultralight aircraft. Complete kits can be purchased, as well as sub-assemblies which can be built in stages.
We now offer a riveted aluminum cabin and fuselage.

We have been able to cut costs with an investment in capital equipment. We acquired a new 4 axis CNC machine and a new 3 axis CNC router. These allowed us to re-engineer many of our parts to take advantage of lower cost and in house production. Also, eliminating welding time was a substantial part of the puzzle in reducing costs. In order to eliminate welding time, we had to re-engineer the flaperons and many of the moving parts.
As a result, many of the parts are now available in our in house CNC machined aluminum, replacing more expensive, less precise welded steel components. An example is the rudder pedals. Machined from billet aluminum, they look way better than the older steel parts.
- Flaperons and tail feathers are now much easier to build, redesigned with inexpensive wooden ribs (cut on our brand new CNC ShopBot). And weight is slightly reduced!
