The Aviasud AE-209 Albatros is a two-seat high-wing ultralight aircraft. Aviasud Engineering from
Fréjus, France developed this largely from strengthened synthetic built 2-seat highwing ULM-aeroplane
with push-propeller. Production of the AE-209 Albatros started in 1992. The Albatros is available with
the 2-stroke Rotax 582 and the 4-stroke Rotax 912 engine. The Albatros classique is equipped with a
tail wheel; the Albatros tricycle is equipped wit a nose wheel or tail wheel. The wings can be folded,
which reduces the needed parking space in the hangar.
The 1998-built Aviasud AE-209 Albatros s/n 129 was registered first in France as 59-ZI. On 3 January 2001,
the Micro Light Aeroplane was registered OO-D24 in Belgium. Aviasud Albatros Double
Eagle OO-D24 was photographed at the ULM-airfield Baisy-Thy near Nivelles in Belgium on 31 July 2003.
