The Aeropro EuroFox is a microlight plane developed and manufactured by Aeropro s.r.o. in Nitra,
Slovakia. It is deliverable as a factory-built, ready-to-fly airplane and as a homebuilt kit, not only
as a MLA but also as a VLA. Development of the "Fox" started back in 1990. The concept of the
Fox was based on the design of the Avid Flyer. A number of refinements of the design resulted in the
first Fox, a two-seat (side-by-side) high-wing microlight homebuild plane with tail wheel. In 1992
Aeropro z.p. was founded to build the Fox. After Aeropro received in 1995 the approvals for
production and aircraft repairs from the Civil Aviation Authority of the Slovak Republic the Fox
was renamed Eurofox for export and marketing. In 1996, the venture Aeropro z.p. was changed
into Aeropro s.r.o. From the beginning in 1990 the engineering team of Aeropro is working on the
further development of the Fox. Next to the original Eurofox, now known under the name "Eurofox-basic"
a new model, the "Eurofox-Pro" was shown at the Aero 97. In 1999, this new model was presented as
the "Eurofox-Space", named so for the fairly spacious cabin, measuring 112 cm at its widest point.
The "Eurofox-Space" is equipped with a fixed trigear undercarriage with controllable front wheel.
The Eurofox is available in two models: the Eurofox-Space and Eurofox-Basic. If is chosen for the homebuilt kit
the customer has to do a lot of work before the plane is ready-to-fly. An 80 hp 4-cylinder-4-stroke liquid-cooled
Rotax 912 UL version engine powers the MLA. With this engine the consumption is under normal circumstances
10 litre/h. As cross speed 120-160 km/h is given for the Eurofox, with a maximum speed of 185 km/h. The
plane has an easy entrance by the gullwing doors. If needed a door can be removed simply. The wings of
the Eurofox can be folded, which reduces the needed parking space in the hangar. By folding the wings
the span of the plane of 9.125 meter is brought back to a breadth of 2.10 meter. With this breadth, a
length of 5,605 meters and a height of 2.25 meters it is possibly to transport the Eurofox on a special
trailer behind a car to and from the house. The LSA version of the Eurofox is known in the USA as Aerotrek A220 or A240,
depending on whether it has taildragger or nosewheel undercarriage. Over 500 planes have been delivered by Aeropro,
not only in Europe, but also in Africa, Canada and the USA.
However the 1997-built Aeropro EuroFox Pro c/n 042097 was registered D-MYKL in Germany as a Ikarusflug Eurofox Pro,
it is an Aeropro "Eurofox-Pro". At the time of the entry of the D-MYKL in the German register, Ikarusflug GmbH
in Salem, was the German dealer. On 1 June 2017, the Aeropro "Eurofox-Pro" D-MYKL was seen at Flugplatz
Leer-Papenburg in yellow “Deutsche Bundespost” colors.
