Country  Netherlands
City/Aerodrome  Eindhoven

Description  The kit is estimated to be 30% ready and can be purchased immediately.

The Elite was originally designed as a tricycle gear version of the Murphy Rebel, although it is now also offered with conventional landing gear as an option. It also incorporated some improvements over the Rebel, including a reinforced airframe, cantilever tail plane with a one-piece elevator, all-metal control surfaces, split configuration flaps, and upgraded wing attachment points and leading edges. This enabled the design to achieve a gross weight of 1,800 lb (816 kg), and to mount engines of up to 180 hp (134 kW). The Elite features a strut-braced high-wing, three seats, tricycle landing gear and a single engine in tractor configuration.

The aircraft is made from aluminium sheet. Its 30.3 ft (9.2 m) span wing is supported by single lift struts. The occupants are accommodated in an enclosed cabin of 44 in (111.8 cm) width, with doors for access and egress. With a standard empty weight of 1,100 lb (499 kg) and a gross weight of 1,800 lb (816 kg), the Elite has a useful load of 700 lb (318 kg). Acceptable power range is 115 to 180 hp (86 to 134 kW), and recommended engines include the 180 hp (134 kW) Lycoming O-360, 150 to 160 hp (112 to 119 kW) Lycoming O-320 and the 115 hp (86 kW) Lycoming O-235.

Construction time from the factory kit is estimated at 1400 hours. The Elite can be operated on wheels, including tundra tires, skis and floats
