1650R Eros

In Greek mythology Eros was the god of love and attraction. We designed the Eros for pilots who love to fly, and you can certainly say it's attractive!

 

Our flagship aircraft, the Eros is the evolution of years of light plane design. It has all the qualities and features our customer were asking for: 

  • Heavy duty airframe, for large guys and large engines
  • 24" wide enclosed cockpit
  • Steel tube landing gear (no cross-axle)
  • Easily removable wings
  • Streamlined cowling, fully-enclosed engine 
  • Molded wingtips
  • Wheel brakes
  • Outstanding short field performance

In addition to all these standard features, the Eros has some pretty neat options. Like a convertible canopy. You can fly in an enclosed cockpit during cold weather or open cockpit when the temperature is a little warmer. Wheel pants ("spats" to our friends in the UK and Oz) really dress up the looks. And you can add a second wing tank to double the range.


Of course we're proud of the Eros and there are some outstanding examples out there, like the beautiful purple and white Eros above. Built by Larry Isreal, it won the Oshkosh Reserve Grand Champion Award in 1995. And Davy Lee Cooper's Grand Champion at Sun 'n Fun '98 (the beautiful black Eros in the photo set below).
