Belite Aircraft officials have conducted a series of stress tests on the carbon-fiber wing of the company’s ultralight.
The tests demonstrated the structural integrity and durability of the wing under loads up to 4Gs, which exceeded the stated specifications of the ultralight, the company said.
The tests were conducted in Wichita.
The wing weighs less than 14 pounds.
Belite Aircraft is offering the Belite 254 Classic aircraft and a carbon fiber version of the plane, the Belite 254, in a kit or an assembled form.
