The engine is placed in a cantilevered cowling above the cockpit. The cockpit and tail boom are built employing a cage of built-up welded steel-alloy (chromoly), wrapped in a carbon fiber composite structure to ensure safety and performance.
These are the distinguishing features of the FX1, a lightweight state of the art aircraft developed by Innovaviation to meet the requirements of the S-LSA category.
For over three decades Alfredo Di Cesare has built aircraft based on this formula, improving the construction features and the design.
FlyEurope.TV came to see for itself how the FX1 is built.
