Just Aircraft of New Zealand - Super STOL XL ZK-DJG

In 2015 Just Aircraft introduced the Super STOL XL which has a stretched fuselage to offset the installation of heavier and more powerful engines up to 180 HP.  Whereas the Escapade, Highlander and Super STOL all had a length of 19 feet, the Super STOL XL has a length of 21 feet 6 inches.  However the wing is the same as the regular Super STOL.

We have had only one Super STOL XL registered here to date, being Don Gray's ZK-DJG2.  It is powered by a 180 HP UL 520i engine and Don says it goes really well.

ZK-DJG2 (c/n JA487-02-16) was registered to D J (Don) Gray of Te Awamutu on 14/8/18.  It is photo'd above in its element, on a lovely day in the South Island high country.
