The Alizé trike has flown for many years in France and has gained a reputation as the best ‘nanolight’ available.
It promises a very different sort of flying, taking off and landing in 30M, climbing at a respectable 550 ft/min and using a large hang glider wing promises to give a glide ratio of 10:1 with the engine off, perfect for catching thermals and soaring.
The adjustable hammock system allows a pilot of any size, to be comfortable while keeping the trike’s centre of gravity as low as possible.
The trike is light and compact, and is conveniently foldable, making transport and storage easy.
It is assembled by DTA, one of the most respected names for trikes in France, with the same attention to detail as their other European and French Championship models. They also provide an efficient post sale customer support service via their English partner, DTA(UK) in Kent.
The Alizé can be easily equipped with the Cors Air engine, highly respected in the Paramotor world, which together with a specifically designed Newton propeller making a perfect power unit for this little trike.
Finally, DTA (UK) Ltd recommend the Aeros 15M Discus wing, made specifically for light trike operation and comes complete with a suitable hanging bracket.
