A powerful UL in composite construction.

The aerobatic high-performance ultralight aircraft is characterized by a number of innovative solutions: Honeycomb sandwich construction with carbon and aramid fibers, effective aerodynamics based on the British Spitfire fighter plane with elliptical wing plan, retractable landing gear, safety cockpit with integrated seat. Due to these features and the associated performance, it caused a sensation in the ultralight scene when it was released. It was manufactured in small series, and there is also a version with an electric engine. This is the serial number 001, i.e. the first prototype. The company Silence Aircraft GmbH was founded by the brothers Thomas and Matthias Strieker in August 2002. The focus is on the development and manufacture of components made of composite materials in aircraft construction, boat building, automobile racing and for wind turbines.
