Without any problems approach and landing can be performed during the air displays and the parking of the airplanes next to the “Flight Line” is possible and desirable. Chilled drinks and nice chats are waiting for you in our guest lounge.

Excellent performance during the Africa ECO RACE

Mr. Pedreno with his VL3 decided to participate in the Africa ECO RACE, the rally, which substitutes for 8 years the old Paris - Dakar. He took part in the " radio relay " which means mostly " off track "…desert, stones and so on.

And the result of VL3 after this relay? No breakage, no trouble due to its structure. Mr. Pedreno can affirm that VL3 is a "plane" stronger and more solid than it seems. Two more ultra-lights were flying with him as the assistance planes: one landing gear broken; one propeller exploded despite the fact that the pilots were experienced and their devices, including a landing gear, were officially more solid. Excellent resistance test!

Le VL3, c'est une Formule 1

Très aérodynamique, ce biplace de 300 kg à vide équipé d'un parachute peut atteindre la vitesse de 290 km/h, sa vitesse de croisière étant de 270 km/h.

Sa faible consommation lui permet une autonomie d'environ 3 000 km. Avec le VL3, on atteint Prague ou Copenhague en trois heures, Londres en soixante minutes. C'est la liberté totale! Un client de Strasbourg se rend presque tous les jours à Paris en ULM. Par rapport à un avion, la chose qui nous limite, c'est la météo.

VL-3 Sprint in France

Speed record VL-3 SPRINT

With VL-3 SPRINT plane the valid world speed record over a straight course was overcome in category RAL2

With this plane the valid world speed record over a straight course was overcome in category RAL2 (microlights with movable aerodynamic control, flown with two people) last year.

The trial was realized on 19 October 2005 from the airfield Hořovice.
The crew represented pilot Jiří Unzeitig and copilot Věra Vavřínová. Authorized course Beroun - Žebrák with length of 17400 m was used. It was decided to attempt for the record even though the weather conditions were not ideal (turbulence, side wind, bad visibility) and to perform four transits over the given course.

After evaluation of the result it could be with pleasure stated that the valid record from 1999 was overcome for nearly 10 km per hour. It is necessary to say that for the attempt the first prototype of the plane was used in series configuration, without dismantling aerials, sealing interface clefts etc. More about the record it is possible to find in the article of Vladimír Šilhan from LAA.

The record was recognized by FAI at the beginning of March 2006.
