There’s another new entry into the 600kg Light Sport Microlight class: the factory-built TL-3000 Sirius 600, manufactured by Czech company TL-Ultralight. The type approval was announced this afternoon by the British Microlight Aircraft Association (BMAA).

TL-Ultralight gained UK CAA A8-1 manufacturer approval in April 2022, becoming the first A8-1 company in Czechia – in the record time of 4.5 months.

The BMAA said it worked closely with the UK agents, Paul Sanders & Peter Ronfell of TL-Sting (UK). This approval sees the UK Sirius fleet double in size from three amateur-built light aircraft to a total of six aircraft.  BMAA has now issued permit to fly certificates to G-PODZ, G-CMLA and G-SBOI. We await an application for the fourth later this month, G-CMJP.

“The BMAA thanks the UK CAA for its pragmatic approach to this project and for working in partnership with us to streamline the approval process for new companies and products,” said the BMAA statement. “The approval of the Sirius will enable work to be concluded on type approval for the TL-2000 Sting S4 by BMAA and the TL Stream LSM by UK CAA.”

Paul Sanders and Peter Ronfell of TL-Sting (UK) added, “Our grateful thanks go to Chief Technical Officer Roger Patrick and BMAA Chief Inspector Rob Mott of the BMAA for their unstinting support and guidance and of course to the team at TL-Ultralight for their own efforts in meeting the tough demands of the UK CAA legislation and approval process.”
