I have flown this aircraft for over 6 years now and have derived immense pleasure from this fantastic aircraft over this time. The Kolb Mk III Xtra aircraft provides for unrivalled visibility for the pilot, with a cabin that is light and airy. It is immensely enjoyable to fly, possessing very capable STOL characteristics and superb handling and benign qualities. Toe pedal brakes provide for sure stops and allow a tighter turning radius
.
The Mark III Xtra has folding wings and tail which allow for easy storage or trailering. The tail folds up and the wings fold back along the fuselage in about 20 minutes by one person. The full enclosure doors hinge forward to facilitate easy entry and exit of the aircraft. Fuel consumption is @15 Litres/Hour ‘two up’.

Included in sale are; Lynx Headsets (x2), ICOM IC A22radio, Garmin GPS PILOTIII. The starter motor and battery were both replaced last year. The aircraft has always been ‘hangered’ and also included in the sale are cockpit dust covers.
