For operators that utilize short, hot and high or unprepared strips, they will be impressed that there is no take-off or landing penalties.
The cargo pods can be quickly and easily loaded by way of 2 large 38” side baggage doors for easy stowage. Strength and lightweight result from being constructed of Kevlar-lined fiberglass.
