4,000 Challengers Worldwide - Performance & Safety Proven Since 1983

The first single seat Challenger ultralight a quarter century ago has evolved into a full line of kitplanes with a wide mix of models, options and accessories.
The new Challenger 103 expands the line back to the grass roots and the
new Challenger Light Sport is the line's most dramatic ever step forward.

Enjoy Payload, STOL, Speed Range, Unmatched Visibility, Doors On/Off

Fly a Challenger Light Sport with your current licence or a Sport Pilot permit.
Or fly a Challenger 103 with zero red tape - no licence, medical or registration.
Challenger is the best value in aviation - first choice of pros and newbies alike!
