The Just right ultralight
Just Aircraft has added a new ultralight to its range. Created to conform to the FAA’S Part 103 criteria for ultralights it is thus appropriately named ‘Just 103’. A single-seater, it weighs less than 254 lb, has a maximum speed of 63mph and will be offered ready-to-fly or as a complete homebuilding kit.
Designed by Troy Woodland, who also created the Just SUPERSTOL, the prototype had flown 1.5 hours before making its public debut at Sun ’n Fun in April, but was not flown there. Just expects to have two examples of the final design on show at Airventure Oshkosh. The prototype has an aluminium boom tube connecting the tail unit to the 4130 steel tube fuselage, but this will be changed to a steel truss similar to that used on the Breezy, Woodland says.
The Just 103 is powered by an Italian Polini Thor 250 engine that develops 37hp at 7,500rpm. Woodland also expects to fly the airframe with a Rotax 582, in which form it would exceed ultralight speed and weight limits, and thus require registration in the ELSA or LSA category. No prices for production or kit variants have yet been announced.
