The Scout XC Apache comes standard with the powerful and reliable 4-stroke 80HP Rotax 912UL engine. You can also request the 100HP Rotax 912S engine, especially helpful if you are considering mounting this light sport aircraft on floats.
Additional upgrades to consider for this engine are the Carburetor Heat option for increased safety and more power during potential icing conditions, and the ultra-quiet Dual Exhaust.
The Scout XC Apache features a streamlined fairing design with rugged strength and convenient storage space in side saddlebags, and includes air induction vents for cooling. The integrated tall windshield is perfectly sized and matched to the fairing for low drag and efficient wind deflection.
Fairing and finned Wheel Fairings colors include Red, Yellow, White, or Black.
If you have another color choice, talk to us about a custom color light sport aircraft for you.
The Scout XC Apache instrument panel area has ample space for gauges, electronic flight information systems, and many switches. Analog gauges include a Fuel Level gauge at the far left side, and Airspeed Indicator on the right side. A 12-volt power receptacle is included for powering GPS or other accessories.
Consider upgrading to the Stratomaster Horizon EFIS for additional "glass cockpit" features when you order a new Scout XC Apache.
The Apache's front fork and suspension system has been further improved by the addition of an adjustable Steering Stabilizer to minimize front-end shimmy during fast landings or crosswinds. Its suspension (shocks) is of our own design, crafted of elastomer spring material such as used on commercial aircraft and mountain bikes. You will appreciate the solid yet responsive feel of our trailing link system. Best of all, the whole fork assembly is made of thick 6061 aluminum plates that bolt together, so parts can be easily replaced if necessary after a hard landing.
The Scout XC Apache features the 3-blade, 68" Warp Drive Propeller as standard equipment, a very good propeller for the Rotax 912 engine.
For improved fuel economy, lower RPMs, and overall appearance and high quality, consider upgrading to the Aerolux 3-blade Propeller.
The Scout XC Apache features Aircraft-grade Matco Brakes as standard equipment, ensuring very efficient braking while on the runway.
The Scout XC Apache includes dual Magneto Switches accessible from the rear seat, coveniently located within the streamlined fairing.
The Scout XC Apache has steering and throttle accessible from the rear seat, very important for light sport training.
The Scout XC Apache includes two saddlebags for storage, one on each side of the seats. They each have two storage pockets with zipper closure.
Sore back? Tired of lifting a 110-pound wing into the air? The Scout XC Apache includes gas-assist springs to aid you in lifting your wing up!
No longer do you need to lift 100+ pounds into the air; with the springs attached, you will be lifting less than 20 pounds. We also have a retro-fit kit for you, if you already have an older Apache.
The Scout XC Apache includes a large 13.5-gallon Fuel Tank (12.75 gallons usable). After seeing the difficulty of adding fuel to most trikes, we had our own tank made. This allows us to put the fuel filler in very accessible location.
The Scout XC Apache comes standard with our new Airfoil Mast.
The new Airfoil Mast reduces drag, and improves tracking at higher speeds by reducing yaw and twist of the mast by the stronger, more aerodynamic mast profile. Cruise at higher speeds with our new mast! A new Hang Block is included with the Airfoil Mast, and is designed to remain installed on the wing. The mast design offers more space for your rear-seat passenger.
The Scout XC Apache has a folding front seat back rest, allowing easy access to the rear seat. The rear seat has a 3-point harness, and the front seat has a 4-point harness. The Front Seat can be adjusted within a range of 4" of travel, very convenient for light sport instruction.
Our light sport aircraft that have electric start come equipped with our custom-designed electrical Fuse & Relay Box. This box makes it very easy to add options, such as strobes and radios, in addition to minimizing any electrical noise that could affect radio communications. We also use only the highest quality "Keywest" regulator.

A most unique quality in the Scout XC Apache design is the strong and durable welded chrome-moly and steel spine (back frame). All other major trike parts either bolt on, or plug into this fixture. This makes the Apache less expensive to repair and easy to work on. If you happen to have an incident while training where you might damage the trike, less expensive parts may need to be replaced and not the main supporting structure.
The Scout XC Apache features an electric starter, and throttle and remote choke are conveniently located right in front of you. A foot throttle is also included, and a 12-volt DC receptacle for GPS or other accessories.
The Scout XC Apache comes with a Strobe Light as standard equipment, providing additional visibility and safety for your flights.
The Scout XC Apache features a strong and rugged 7075 Aluminum Leaf Spring Suspension. The leaf-spring suspension reduces drag with its slim profile, and its strength eliminates the need for the additional drag struts and load springs. This innovative new suspension design provides soft and positive landings.
