Belite Aircraft Introduces SkyDock

July 19, 2015 - Belite Aircraft is launching SkyDock, its newest entry into the ultralight market at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. SkyDock features lighter weight, lower cost, and a simpler design.

“We’ve listened to customer concerns about price, build time and ease of construction,” said James Wiebe, president and CEO of Belite Enterprises. “The SkyDock offers Part 103 legal ultralight flying at an affordable price without sacrificing performance or the technology that is a part of the Belite reputation.”

The strutless low-wing design’s wings build quickly and easily detach for storage or transport. There are no lift struts and no jury struts for easier assembly and less drag while flying.

Various engine options are available. Wood and aluminum parts are precision CNC-cut and no welding is required. Fiberglass and carbon fiber are used for reinforcement.

Since 2009, Belite Aircraft has brought ultralight aircraft to market that has offered innovation in design and technology. Currently Belite offers two additional models: The ProCub Lite with CNC foam and aluminum construction, and the UltraCub with CNC aluminum. Both models are available as factory built and kits.

Wiebe was awarded the prestigious Dr. August Raspet Memorial Award in 2011.

Belite Enterprises has started a Kickstarter campaign to help fund final SkyDock development. The kit is priced at $3,995 through Kickstarter, a big savings off the regular price. The Kickstarter project will be open approximately July 22 for four weeks.
