The XT can be set up easily by one person. The mast folds independently of the motor. A gas strut is used to help lift the wing onto the trike base and requires little effort. High quality Fournales oleopneumatic rear shock absorbers are used on the rear, with double action adjustable shock absorbers on the front. The XT now comes standard with carb heating.

The XT has wide rear 6 inch wheels with redesigned wheel pants.The XT-912 comes standard with the new Streak 3 wing. PX 20 mylar is used on the leading edge. This cloth is only available in white with a black cross weave, it is UV resistant, and is easy to keep clean.

The wing battens are enclosed and the Streak 3 features easy to load batten ends. No more struggling with bungee elastics or hard to press springs. The Streak 3 has a super clean low drag trailing edge. Setting up a Streak 3 is a one man/woman operation as with all Airborne wings.

The fuel tank holds 72 litres giving the pilot enough airtime for extensive cross country or circuit work. The CNC milled mast capture has allowed an efficient means of attaching the engine mounts, the shock absorbers and the seat frame. The mast is held in place by this part which has been milled out of solid 6061 grade aluminium. This method of manufacturing allows for very strong and light weight components to be used.

Power is supplied by the reliable Rotax 912 80 HP engine. This runs very smooth and quiet using around 8-12 litres of fuel per hour. With the 72 litre (19 US gallon) fuel tank a cruise speed of 55-60 knots the XT is a true cross country cruiser. This reliable Rotax 912 delivers a smooth 80 HP to a 3 blade composite propeller with a CNC milled hub.
