MAC MU-200 LST-300 LST-400 ultralight, ultra lite aircraft, amateur built, experimental, homebuilt aircraft.

Mattison Aircraft Company of Perry, Kansas offers 3 designs of ultralight aircraft starting at under $4000 in kit form. All three models are high wing monoplane designs with single surface Dacron wings and 6061 T6 tubing airframes. Factory specs list a very reasonable 10-15 hour kit assembly time with a 15-30 minute fold up or down time.

A pusher configuration with overhead mounting allows folding of the aircraft without removal of the engine pac. A variety of engines were available but all models use reduction drives with large hardwood props. 3 gallon gas tanks are standard.

Other features worthy of mention include shock absorbing spring landing gear, adjustable angle of attack, heavy duty spoke wheels. quick release king post, and droop wing tips.

Kit
design offers pre-drilled tubing, pre-cut pre-sewn dacron fabric, and pre-assembled cables, coated and doubled swedged.
The MAC 400 series is an inexpensive weight shift model with a slightly smaller pilot cage than the upgraded 200 series. It will accommodate engines from 15-40 H.P.

The 400 series, like the 200 serie.~, is constructed of 90% straight tubing joined with special fittings for faster assembly time, easier repair, and lower cost all around. This straight tubing construction allows repair or replacement by merely cutting and drilling straight tube stock for the appropriate location.
 
The 200 series is the upgraded weight shift MAC. The pilot cage is wider than the 400 series and straight down tubes and nose forks allow ease of replacement with increased strength. Two special brackets have separated rear down tubes from front down tubes, giving better balance for larger engines. Like the 400 series, the weight shift design features a 5-way harness. A special feature of the 200 series is the option to convert to 3-axis control by purchasing a conversion kit.
Finally, Mattison offers a conventional 3-axis control model in the MAC 300 series. Designed to please licensed pilots, the MAC 300 has pedals operating the rudder and a joy stick for the elevator and ailerons. The pilot sits in a fixed seat with a 5-way safety harness. An electric starter is available as an option.
In all, Mattison offers 9 models of the MAC from 3 designs.
