When we at AEROS began thinking of entering the overseas
market with our trike, the existing "Aeros1" trike couldn't satisfy
our requirements from a marketing point of view, both because of
outside resemblance to the "similar looking" Air Creation trike
as well as because of the increased needs of demanding customers.
So, a decision was made to refine the existing trike, changing its
exterior design and using all the achievements and benefits of the
load-carrying structure of the existing trike.
With the "Aeros 1" trike, all engineering solutions
had been checked and worked out and later they were applied in the
"Aeros 2" trike. The tested and proven reliability of these solutions
was the factor that gave us confidence enough to start making an
export version of the trike and enter the world UL market with a
competitive, top-end line of Aeros' products.
"Aeros 2" is a trike which is now rightly considered
an elite product among motorized Ultralights. The mordern design
of its fairing gives the trike a classy stylish look, like that
of an expensive car. This combines with an excellent flight performance
worthy of the best representatives of the new generation trikes.
When Aeros 2 was created, our engineers gave much
of their attention to ergonomics issues, trying to provide comfort
in flight both for the pilot as well the passenger. This has been
achieved by the widened seats frame, as well as room inside the
fairing for the passenger's feet. A small windshield partially protects
the pilot from wind without affecting forward line-of-sight. The
instrument panel of the "Aeros 2" is recessed into the fairing and
painted with special antiglare paint.
We can't help but mention some of the excellent technical
upgrades and innovations applied in the fairing of the "Aeros 2".
A special beam running longitudinally along the interior of the
entire fairing not only makes room for the passenger's feet, but
also increases the rigidity of the fairing, which is important for
this type of fairing since the surface area is so large. Also, because
of our vast experience with trikes, we decided that all fiberglass
edges facing the pilot and the passenger should not just covered
with rubber, but should be shaped, rolled and folded inside. This
is a complicated thing to do in a fiberglass structure, but this
profile increases rigidity of the design, as well as providing additional
safety for the operators, as they are exposed only to the smooth
surface of the edge.
The Aeros 2 design is elaborate, proven and ergonomic.
For example, the folding pylon makes it possible to one person hang
the wing on the trike without anyone's assistance. With the idea
to increase reliability and safety of the design, there is a safety
cable inside the pylon.
The main landing gear of pyramidal shape combined
with automobile shock absorbers makes it possible to fly from and
land on unimproved fields, increases safety on rough landings, and
makes steering much more comfortable.
Utilizing a professional approach of aircraft engineering,
the application of certified materials and up-to-date technologies
are the domineering characteristics of all AEROS products. The load-carrying
frame of our trike is made of rectangular tubes of aircraft alloy
D16T 60 x 40 x 2 reinforced by a rectangular tube 54 x 34 x 2; the
seat frame is made of the tube D16T 32 x 2. All load-carrying fittings
are made according to aircraft technologies of tubes and plates
of 30 HGSA steel. This work is done in close cooperation with the
Antonov factory and Aviant Kiev plant.
The trike wings that are produced by AEROS (Stranger,
firmly taken their place in the ultralight market and have made
an excellent name for themselves in all possible applications. Click

AEROS engineers have designed a range of engine mounts
for mounting the following engines applied for ultralights: Rotax
503, Rotax 582, Rotax 912, BMW, Subaru. If a customer wants to have
some other engine mounted, a new engine mount can be designed for
You can order the "Aeros 2" trike in any form, from
a kit to the ready-to-fly trike, and of course there are many options
for you to choose from.
The "Aeros 2" can be equipped with the engine, wing
and instruments of your choice, floats or skis, rescue system, etc.
On the trikes "general information" page we've tried to publish
comprehensive information on making a trike with ultimate consideration
of the customer's opportunities and wishes. The "Aeros 2" trike
with Rotax 503 and Rotax 582 is known at the US market as the Venture
500 and the Venture 600. A Venture report by Dan Johnson has been
published in Ultralight Flying magazine - May 2000 issue.
