Super Drifter

Popular demands for a four-cylinder Rotax 912 powered drifter has spurred the development of this amazing aircraft. Performance is astonishing; as it is one of the lightest aircraft powered by the tried & true 81 hp Rotax 912. The engine allows the aircraft to fly at very low setting, making for super-quiet operations and tremendous power reserves. Takeoffs are very short and climb rates/angles usher in a new standard of performace for the aircraft. Fuel efficiency is greattly improved, with gains on the order of 30%! "The adaptation of the 912 on a Drifter will undoubtedly offer some of the greatest gains in performance that we have seen in 15 Years!"
