Some years ago Miles McCallum of Flyer magazine approached us to help design a conventional landing gear for the Europa.  The project took some time before a design was finalised but it was worth the wait.


The basis of the conversion are two trigear main legs reversed.  Customised reinforcements consisting of Y shaped webs are added.  These nestle under the knees and act as an aid to entry and egress as the seat base is no longer needed as a step.


The Flyer Europa was sold and Mike Davis purchased the aircraft and completed the taildragger build as G-MLXP.  The LAA took their time approving the modification, however, it is now fully approved.

Recommended for mono owners who cannot quite accept the trigear route.


We can arrange supply and fit of the landing gear conversion - price on application as it depends on the age and configuration of the donor aircraft.


Price is for structural items only.  Brakes, hardware, spats, etc are all extra.
