The SuperSTOL is Just Aircraft Australia's short takeoff and landing version of the Highlander
The SuperSTOL is the latest product from Just Aircraft. The SuperSTOL sports an all metal wing aerodynamically designed to enhance slow flight capabilities while also increasing cruise speed. Additionally the wing incorporates self-deploying leading edge slats and long span fowler flaps to further improve the aircraft's stall range. To complement the new wing we have installed a new landing gear system that takes full advantage of a hydraulic strut with a long distance of travel. The tail wheel also incorporates a hydraulic shock to lessen aggressive off airport landings. No other aircraft kit manufacturer offers a comparable airplane.The wing slats, when combined with the large Fowler flaps, allow the aircraft to be flown at extremely high angles of attack permitting it to 'drop' into small or inclined clearings. This provides access to considerably more off-airport landing sites, making the SuperStol one of the most versatile backcountry machines out there. With the new wing configuration, the Highlander will cruise at 110 mph, land at 32 mph, and take off or land with as little as 150 feet of runway.
The Highlander is our bush plane model with longer wings, taller-heavier gear & tundra tyres
The Highlander is a versatile aircraft with great performance capabilities. The cockpit is 44" wide with lots of headroom and over 30 cu. ft. of cargo area. The plane has adjustable seats and there is plenty of cargo room to haul everything you need for that hunting, fishing or cross country trip. Planes may be fitted with floats as an amphib, with wheels, or skiis for winter use. This aircraft is very affordable and with the proper maintenance will last you a lifetime. Combine these features with the new Light Sport Pilot license and you too can enjoy the thrill of flying your own aeroplane! The Highlander is manufactured with all high quality aircraft materials and can be fitted with a Rotax or Jaribu aircraft engine. The power and light operating weight, coupled with 121 square foot of wing area, allows the aircraft to take off and land with a ground roll of 300 feet. The Highlander also has an impressive 880 feet per minute climb rate.
