The Tandem Air-Bike allows you to share the fun. Thicker spars increase the useful load for
the largest of pilots. Strong and responsive, the Tandem may be the perfect taildragger
trainer. Full dual controls, optional wing fold and an honest 500lb. useful load.

The name Airbike was chosen for the aircraft because it has a narrow fuselage and the pilot’s feet rest on rudder pedals that are on the outside of the aircraft, in a similar manner to a motorcycle.

The Tandem Airbike retains all of the single-seater’s features and has a stretched fuselage to accommodate the second seat. It uses a wing of 33.8 ft (10.3 m) span with an area of 152 sq ft (14.14 sq m). The tandem-seat model was intended to be licensed as an ultralight trainer or an amateur-built aircraft. Standard engine was the 50 hp (37 kW) Rotax 503.
