The TL Ultralight TL-3000 Sirius is a hing-wing carbon composite two-seat aeroplane. TL Ultralight manufactures the TL3000 Sirius in both Ultralight and LSA versions. The Czech company TL Ultralight started in 1990 with the production of trikes. Their first ultralight was the TL-32 Typhon, of which since 1991 over 300 were produced. This type of aircraft was followed by TL 132 Condor. The TL-232 Condor Plus was a further development of the TL-132 Condor. In 1996, TL Ultralight designed a complete new type: the TL-96 Star, a high performance glasscomposite aircraft. The development took 2 years and for TL it meant the transition to complete new materials and technology. The TL-96 Star was followed by the low-wing TL-2000 Sting in as well Ultralight as LSA versions. The carbon fiber composite TL-3000 Sirius is an all new high wing sister ship of the Sting. Development started in 2006 and TL-Ultralight s.r.o. completed the first series of test flights of the high-wing TL-3000 Sirius in the Czech Republic in May and June 2008. Czech Type Certificate for the TL 3000 Sirius was received on 1 April 2010. Like the Sting, the Sirius can be powered by a Rotax 912ULS or Rotax 912UL 4-cylinder, 4-stroke, liquid/air cooled engine or a Rotax 914UL turbo charged aircraft engine. The TL-3000 Sirius is available in an ULM and a LSA version. A wide variety of standard flight and engine monitoring instruments to full glass panel displays are available. Its large cockpit offers ample head and leg room and the large doors of the TL-3000 Sirius open upwards and are held in place by hydraulic struts. According to the type, the empty weight of the aircraft is about 297 kg. Depending of the engine used, the cruise speed is 180-230 km/hr.
