Europa's long wing receives LAA approval

Europa long wing motorglider

Europa Aircraft’s long wing variant of the Europa XS, sometimes known as the motorglider, has received approval from the UK Light Aircraft Association (LAA).

The interchangeable wings are already approved in many other countries around the world. The LAA’s approval specifies a maximum takeoff mass (MOTM) of 621kg (1370 lb), the same as the Europa XS aircraft.

To celebrate the announcement, Europa Aircraft is offering 12.5% discount off long wing kits, which applies to both conversion kits and full kits purchased in 2018 with the long wing option.

The long wing option adds more than 20ft to the wingspan, and 39sq ft to the wing area. Its obvious application is as a motorglider. The factory-stated glide ratio (with propeller feathered) is 27:1 at 53 knots.
