Two-seater: HB-MTS - Extra330LX (year 2013)
This aircraft type is the latest generation aerobatic aircraft and the only aircraft certified in this category. The more stable construction makes the aircraft somewhat heavier, but it is also much safer.
Initially the previous model was also used for the Red Bull Air Race Series. However, lighter experimental aircraft such as the Edge 540 are now flown for racing, but they are not certified.
