    COMMENTS:
    Our most popular aircraft, the Mark III Xtra embodies all of the design features and flying characteristics of our Mark III Classic. It is easy-to-build and easy to fly. With its gross weight of 1000 lbs. and slow stall speed, it qualifies as an experimental kit build light sport aircraft... Perfect for Sport Pilot! ELSA.
