Design and development


The Malamut was developed from the classic Piper J-3 Cub. It was designed to comply with the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale microlight rules. It features a strut-braced high-wing, a two-seats-in-tandem enclosed cockpit, fixed conventional landing gear and a single engine in tractor configuration.[1][2]

The aircraft is constructed in the same manner as the Cub. The fuselage is made from welded steel tubing, while the wings have a wooden structure, all covered in doped aircraft fabric. Its 10.1 m (33.1 ft) span wing has an area of 15.1 m2 (163 sq ft) and flaps. The standard engine available is the 80 hp (60 kW) Rotax 912UL four-stroke powerplant.[1][2]
