Four XtremeAir XA42 (Sbach) aircraft are permanently based in China. Due to airspace restrictions in China the planes are transported to each event by road in 2 x 40ft containers where they are assembled for the Airshow.
Airframe is a carbon monocoque construction. The wing is a one piece double box main spar. Ailerons are hinged on 5 points and equipped with spades to reduce control forces and enhance handling. Main gear struts are steel spring type. Tailwheel is linked to the rudder pedals and is lockable.
Wings & tailplane are removable, allowing packing of 2 aircraft per 40 ft container for shipping.
