Aircraft Overview

The Cheetah is the cheapest 2 seat performance aircraft on the market today...anywhere! Based on similar building techniques to the single seat range of aircraft, the Cheetah is easy to build requiring no jigs. The Cheetah, like all of our aircraft, is Australian designed and made.

 

The generous 42 inch wide cockpit ensures long range comfort. The Cheetah features 3 large baggage compartments (0.95 cubic meters) to compliment those pilots that really like to load up and get away in comfort and style. With a 110Kt cruise and 95 litres of fuel on board the Cheetah is sure to get you where you want to go.

 

Once again Morgan Aeroworks brings to the market an economical aircraft that is not only a delight to fly, but also quick and easy to build.

Specifications

The Cheetah uses a simple aluminium tube fuselage and pop rivet construction method. The main support frame that holds the undercarriage, pilot and wings to the fuselage is a welded steel tube frame. The double taper main wing spars are a structural angle top and bottom with a sheer web face; these are riveted together with solid rivets. Many pre-moulded fibreglass parts such as the wing ribs help reduce construction time. Other fibreglass parts such as cowl, spats and wing tips are included in the kit as well as wheel brakes and various hardware. The aircraft is fabric covered to get a smooth finish. Many optional extras can be purchased should you wish to upgrade certain aspects of the basic kit.
