South Africa’s Rainbow Aircraft quickly stole the limelight from the Vans RV12 – the 100th LSA to achieve ASTM approval – by earning the first approval of the next hundred – SLSA # 101. *** The aircraft, dubbed Cheetah XLS, is imported and distributed by Midwest Sport Aviation of Wisconsin. *** Taking a page from the X-Air school of affordable sport aircraft, the Cheetah is listed at just under $53,000. *** You can have one in either taildragger or tricycle-gear flavor. Powerplant options abound too: Jabiru 2200, Rotax model 582 or 912S, with horsepower ranges from 65 to 100. *** Congratulations to this latest contender! *** –photos courtesy Midwest Sport Aviation
