In Aero 2005’s massive display halls, light-sport aircraft from eastern European companies dominated. Yet one creative idea traveled from France. The Isatis 01 from AeroJames appears to have no room for its tractor engine…no wonder as the BMW engine is in the rear spinning its prop through a carbon fiber driveshaft. The logic is to give the pilot tremendous visibility and it works. The Isatis 01 and many other planes will be featured in my report for Kitplanes magazine (9/05 issue).
