Crossover was born out of the desire to fully develop an ultra-light aircraft with innovative features, inspired by an old ambition to recover a project from the '70s, the FS-29, whose details lay in an aviation museum in Stuttgart.

Designing a completely new aircraft is an extremely complex and challenging compromise, requiring very advanced styling and engineering capabilities, and we were very pleased with this challenge: realizing a man's vision of flying.

To meet the requirements of this aircraft, each gram of weight was importante. Therefore, due to their impressive weight-to-strength ratio, carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRP) were widely used in the fuselage, aerodynamic surfaces and other internal components.

Crossover – vista geral – (3)-2

To achieve the feel of a sports car in the sky, a number of decisions were made in advance during the design process, such as side-by-side two-seater configuration and cockpit access, just like we’d find in an automobile.

Weight had to be kept to an absolute minimum, so carbon fiber was used extensively in Crossover, that was propelled by electric motors. From the first design, the challenge was to achieve a hybrid glider-crossover configuration, adapted to both high-speed maneuvering and gliding configuration.
