The Stratos was designed with the owner-operator in mind, focusing on simplicity and docile flight qualities for ease of operation. The configuration is optimized with a long tail arm (relative distance between the wing and horizontal tail), ensuring good stability.
The Stratos 714´s engine thrust acts close to the aircraft´s center of gravity, contributing to the design objectives of easy handling and low pilot workload. A wide center of gravity envelope simplifies loading.
The Stratos 714 will safely land at much lower speeds than twin-engine jets with similar performance. As a Very Light Personal Jet, emphasis has been placed on making the Stratos 714 handling simple and predictable with benign stall characteristics for safe flight by owner-operators, even at low speed.
The Stratos 714 is designed from the ground up to make exceptional performance enjoyable.
