Brian and his wife Carol have teamed together with a number of companies including Quicksilver Aircraft to bring the EMG 6 electric ultralight motor glider to market.
According to Brian the aircraft can be built from plans or built from a number of different kits. The EMG-6 electric motor glider is an FAR part 103 legal ultralight, Adventure Aircraft has developed the EMG-6 with folding wings. The design incorporates match drilled skins and CNC manufactured components.
Currently the EMG 6 is using model airplane technology for battery and propulsion. The model aircraft technology was chosen because of its world wide marketing scope which has brought forward innovative ideas in both electric motor and batteries.
Brian had on display both a single a two seat version of the EMG 6, with the single seat to be used as a legal part 103 ultralight. As an ultralight the EMG 6 requires no license, medical or registration. The two seat EMG will be licensed as an experimental aircraft and is envisioned it will be used for training.
A number of propulsion packages will be offered in both electric and gasoline powered versions.
