TLAC ac­quires Med­way Mi­cro­lights

Pilot - - NOTES -

Lit­tle Snor­ing, Nor­folk-based The Light Air­craft Com­pany (TLAC) has ac­quired the de­signs and as­sets of Med­way Mi­cro­lights and trans­fer of pro­duc­tion stock, equip­ment and data has been com­pleted. TLAC Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Paul HendrySmit­h says “the ac­qui­si­tion is a pos­i­tive move for both par­ties. The Med­way types, the SLA Ex­ec­u­tive and Med­way Clip­per both of which are fac­tory-build ap­proved air­craft, add to the TLAC port­fo­lio with a good level of syn­ergy with its ex­ist­ing types… We can see the ben­e­fits of of­fer­ing a com­pet­i­tively priced ro­bust proven three-axis mi­cro­light air­craft into the train­ing arena, pri­vate own­ers and groups. The Med­way de­signs have proven them­selves in the field, can be up­graded eas­ily for other power plants and po­ten­tial higher weights in the fu­ture.” TLAC plans to be in pro­duc­tion and tak­ing or­ders for the Med­way types in the first quar­ter of this year, and as part of the sale agree­ment will con­tinue to pro­vide spares and sup­port for the Med­way weight-shift models.

The Med­way Ex­ec­u­tive is one of the fac­tory-built, ap­proved types that will now be part of TLAC’S port­fo­lio
