Merlin HV 105

Merlin HV 105 is a single seat high-wing ultra-light equipped with the HK S 700E four-stroke engine. Its powerful and reliable gear together with the roomy cockpit makes it comfortable to fly but also suitable for more demanding markets.

The fuselage of this all-metal plane is of a semi-monocoque construction with vertical structural members and longitudinal stringers. The front fuselage, from the firewall to the rear of the cockpit consists of a riveted aluminium alloy tub. The door is top-hinged, supported by a gas strut in the open position.

Merlin's wings as well as the tail surfaces are fully aluminium skinned. The aircraft has a fixed tricycle undercarriage with two moulded composite cantilever main legs and a steel tube steerable and telescopic noseleg.
