The X350 Gen II is an affordable, two-seater, “light” aerobatic sport aircraft designed for cross-country trips, it features a limit load factor of plus 6.0 g’s and minus 4.0 g’s.
The wings feature a carbon fiber structure tested to an ultimate load factor of 12.0 g’s. The Gen II’s wing tanks have a total fuel capacity of 63 US gallons, giving a range of 1,000 nautical miles and an endurance of over 6 hours. This factors in taxi, takeoff and a 45-minute fuel reserve. The aircraft also has one of the widest interiors on the market today, featuring optional leather interior and plenty of baggage room making the Gen II perfect for comfortable cross-country trips.
The X350 Gen II uses a 180 to 200 horsepower engine and has an “economy” cruise speed of 155 knots (178 miles per hour) and a “sport” cruise speed of 175 knots (201 miles per hour). It offers a useful load of 926 pounds and 538 pounds with full fuel.
The X350 Gen II kit allows for a variety of customization. It features a large and modular avionics panel. The interior of the aircraft is not structural giving the builder almost unlimited possibilities to customize the interior. To maximize comfortability within the cabin, the carbon fiber canopy frame contains integrated air channels to flow cool or warm air to where the builder choses to place the air outlets.
The Gen II also features a “tricycle” or “tri-gear” undercarriage, giving more options to the builders.
The X350 Gen II kit is an extremely easy-to-build composite aircraft, with a little over 425 hours required to have the aircraft in the air. The kit was designed with the “first-time-builder” in mind and would appeal to a builder that desires an aircraft with sleek lines that offers comfort without sacrificing performance.
The X350 Gen II kit can be built in a double garage and requires no “special” tooling to complete. The kit includes Imperial AN hardware and all items and parts required to complete the aircraft except the engine, engine mount, avionics and propeller. However, these items may be purchased with the kit for the builder’s convenience.
A well-detailed construction manual (featuring ample illustrative photographs) is provided with the kit. Quick assistance can also be given by phone or via SKYPE call. Whisper Aircraft have a growing builders forum too, where owners can share their construction experience and knowledge.*
*All current build forum aircraft are 1st Generation Whisper Aircraft. 1st Gen X350's is 10% completed kits.
**Engine, engine mount and avionics are excluded in the standard kit, however they can be supplied.
* Final performance may vary slightly
The X350 Gen II is the pilot’s plane. It expresses the pilot’s bold statement and style. The exterior paint style and color scheme will be your most important stylistic decision.
It will also be the reason for envy both inside and out of the hangar.
X350 Gen II is Personalized to Suit Your Taste
A Optional full-leather interior, generously crafted seats (with perforated accents), leather on the instrument panel and the inner lining of the doors, as well as black leather trims, is an elegant and sporty result; which fits perfectly into the overall concept of the X350 Gen II.
