Overview 2

The SportStar and EuroStar are a family of a two-seat, light sport aircraft (LSA), manufactured by Evektor-Aerotechnik of the Czech Republic and powered by a Rotax 912ULS, 100 hp (75 kW) engine.

The SportStar was the first approved special light-sport aircraft (S-LSA) and was named S-LSA Aircraft of the Year by AeroNews Network.

Design and Development 2

The SportStar is an all-metal design made from anodized, corrosion-proofed aluminum. The airframe uses a pop-riveted and bonded construction, which the company claims will improve fatigue characteristics and result in a longer service life. The company also claims this construction technique results in better crash-worthiness, the elimination of rivet zippering in an accident and quieter in-flight noise levels due to the elimination of oil-canning and flexing.

The SportStar was designed for towing sailplanes up to 1544 lbs (700 kg) gross weight and for towing banners up to 1479 ft² (140 m²).
