SAFETY IS OUR NUMBER #1 PRIORITY!
The VL3 is certified and tested in collaboration with the Czech Aerospace Institute. The VL3 was successfully tested to ultimate loads of up to +15Gs and -8Gs.
The VL3 is free of flutter until 450 km/h TAS. The VNE is limited to 340 km/h IAS. The VNO is 280 km/h IAS.
To increase your safety the VL3 can be equipped with a TCAS (Traffic alert and Collision Avoidance). If other aircraft are in your vicinity you will receive a visual and audio alert to your EFIS and headset.
An ELT ( Emergency locator transmitter) may also be installed in case of an emergency landing to enable SAR services to quickly locate you.
Most VL3 aircraft are equipped with auto pilot. If you lose control of the aircraft upon accidentally entering a cloud, you can activate the levelling function and the aircraft will automatically level out.
AOA . The Angle of Attack indicator will give you a warning if you approach the critical angle of attack before stalling.
Close to the fuselage, on the leading edge, the VL3 is equipped with stall strips to improve the controllability of the aircraft when it enters a stall.
We use only certified aviation bolts for all the control lines and certified resin is used to laminate the VL3. All the electrical installation (cables, antenna, radio, transponder, and more) is made from aviation certified materials.
The VL3 already flies in the Czech Republic, Germany, Belgium, France, Norway, Portugal, Poland, The Baltic States, South Africa, USA, Italy, Slovakia, Turkey, Hungary, Romania, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Spain.
The parachute system is designed to protect occupants in the event of an emergency by lowering the aircraft to the ground after deployment.
In the event of an in-flight emergency, pulling the red handle deploys a solid-fuel rocket out a hatch that covers the compartment where the parachute is stored.
As the rocket carries the parachute rearward from the front of the aircraft, the embedded airplane harness straps release from the fuselage.
