Design and development


The Cruiser Suzuki was designed to comply with the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale microlight category, including the category's maximum gross weight of 450 kg (992 lb). The aircraft has a maximum gross weight of 450 kg (992 lb). It features a cable-braced hang glider-style high-wing, weight-shift controls, a two-seats-in-tandem open cockpit, tricycle landing gear with wheel pants and a single engine in pusher configuration.[1]

The Cruiser Suzuki is made from bolted-together aluminum tubing, with its double surface wing covered in Dacron sailcloth. Its 9.28 m (30.4 ft) span wing is supported by a single tube-type kingpost and uses an "A" frame weight-shift control bar. The powerplant is a modified liquid-cooled, four-stroke, 80 hp (60 kW) Suzuki automotive engine. The aircraft has an empty weight of 230 kg (507 lb) and a gross weight of 450 kg (992 lb), giving a useful load of 220 kg (485 lb). With full fuel of 33 litres (7.3 imp gal; 8.7 US gal) the payload is 196 kg (432 lb).[1]
