BAT HAWK

World's MOST AFFORDABLE micro aviation aircraft

BAT HAWK by MICRO AVIATION SA

Max-Link Adventure Sports Club has joined hands with MICRO AVIATION SA to promote aerosports and sell Micro Aviation Aircraft in India. The Bat Hawk has been designed and developed by MICRO AVIATION South Africa as the most affordable micro aviation aircraft in the world. The aircraft complies with the ASTM2245 Build Standard rules and regulations. It features a strut-braced high-wing, a two-seats-in-side-by-side configuration open cockpit, fixed tricycle landing gear and a single engine in tractor configuration. As a conventional 3-axis micro aviation aircraft, the Bat Hawk does not rely on pilot weight shift to affect control. Twin seats are positioned side by side for full dual control and both crew members are well protected from the weather by an aerodynamic fibreglass pod and large wrap-around windshield. The Bat Hawk’s cockpit is very similar to that of a helicopter with excellent forward visibility as well as to both sides. MASC feels very proud to be associated with MICRO AVIATION SA for being chosen as the distributor of their aircraft in India.

  • Side by side seating
  • Dual 3-axis controls
  • Comprehensive Instrumentation
  • Multi-role aircraft
