Unread post by stefan » Wed Oct 24, 2018 10:01 pm

KFA is proud to announce that we received our German DULV permit to fly (VVZ) for the EXPLORER UL 600 aircraft. This is part of the final step in achieving our German DULV type approval. We already have pre-orders for a number of aircraft. KFA will be exhibiting the Explorer UL 600 at Aero 2019 in Friedrichshafen.
