I am very proud of its performance and very comfortable with the price necessary to own an aircraft like this. From a commercial operator perspective, I would have been forced to invest a similar amount of capital on 2 other machines to equal the longevity & strength of this one.
With so many elements in aviation that are out of our control; the quality of equipment we fly is one of the few that we can. Air Creation has take taken a completely different approach to the airframe design & ergonomics compared to the ‘mast/keel’ design of all the other trikes. It is a precision-welded cage with more strength & room than any other trike, period. After travelling to the factory in France myself, I can assure you that no processes or materials have been compromised. Through collaboration with BMW in both design & manufacturing for this trike, Air Creation has created a new world of luxury trikes & aerotrekking. The machines are complexed to build and production IS limited to about 200 machines annually.
Only 25 are slated for delivery to the US. They have a rather long manufacturing lead time of 12 – 15 weeks. I was quoted more time than this myself, but they delivered early. Again, the Tanarg is the newest innovation, highest quality, & most award-winning trike/wing combination in history. Obviosly, they’re expensive, hard to get, and not for everyone but if you’re seriously considering the reality of a high-end touring motorcycle in the sky, this is where you’ll end up. The trike comes standard with everything except the BRS.
