100 horsepower Dynamic receives Type Approval from CAA
Friday, 21 December 2007

The Yeoman Light Aircraft Company is delighted to announce that it has secured Type Approval from the UK Civil Aviation Authority for the 100HP Rotax 912-ULS powered Dynamic microlight. With this announcement, the Dynamic becomes the fastest UK production microlight, beating the previous holder of this title – the Flight Design CTSW – by a full 5 knots. More significantly, the Dynamic now outperforms not only old GA types such as the PA-28 or Cessna 172, but also many of the newer designs including the Liberty XL2 and Aquila A210. YLAC managing director Nick Marley commented today "I am extremely proud to have achieved Type Approval for the 100HP Dynamic in an unprecedented 9 months after the original certification. Whilst none of our direct competitors currently offer any engine option, this key milestone – so soon after original Type Approval – emphatically demonstrates our commitment to continuous development of our product, and to responding to market requirements. In keeping with YLAC philosophy, rather than paring down the Dynamic to offer the 100HP variant we have actually added to it – the Dynamic's low weight state-of-theart carbon fuselage allows a slipper clutch, airbox and ram air to be fitted as standard." "With performance not just challenging that of GA, but actually surpassing fully two-thirds of the current UK fleet – and with a fraction of the operating costs – coupled with it increasingly winning in the key schools market – the Dynamic really is delivering on its billing as the future of personal aviation. The 100HP certification will come as a fantastic early Christmas present for the discerning UK or Irish pilot who values speed – and style." Nick added: "As always, I am very thankful to my amazing team for their latest achievement, and I would also like to thank our colleagues at the CAA for their help and assistance with our application."
