JMB VL-3 EVOLUTION OVERVIEW

JMB Aircraft is the production company of the VL3, a plane designed by Vanessa Air and produced in the past by Aveko.

 

The airframe is completely made of composite material which excels in its specific strength and excellent fatigue properties. The entire aircraft can be broken down into individual units, i. e., both halves of the wing and tail surfaces, including stabilizers, can be separated from the fuselage to ease aircraft transport.

The aerodynamic design of the wing gives the aircraft appropriate fall characteristics. The separation of air flow in the critical angle of slope happens at the root of the wing. This ensures good handling of the machine until it drops and symmetrically stalls. This allows for the aircraft's smooth and agile handling.

The tail section employs a true and tested traditional design. The internal structure of the stabilizers is similar to the construction of the wings. Therefore the tail section can be completely removed from the hull, with the exception of the keel, which is its integral part.

 

The VL3 has type certificates in The Czech Republic, Germany, Belgium, France, Norway, Portugal, Poland, The Baltic States, South Africa, USA, Italy, Slovakia, Turkey, Hungary and Romania. VL3 is eligible to be registered in Canada. New type certificates are in process for Israel, Australia, New Zealand and Spain.


Interior Design

The cabin area features clean lines and a minimalist, contemporary design. The combination of carbon and kevlar fibers, which are extremely tough, provide safety to the crew in case of an emergency landing.

The dashboard is fully customised to individual customers. The instruments are mounted in a laser-cut plate with surface inscriptions created by serigraphy. Carbon look panel is an option.

The seats are comfortable and modern – select your choice of textile or leather designs, including choice of color. The seats are equipped with four-point safety belts. You can also choose colour of stitches, safety belts, perforated leather or not, colour of embroidery.

The aircraft is equipped with a heating and ventilation system. Warm air is distributed to the leg areas, while cold air is delivered through vents on the dashboard. Strong Aveo cabin ventilation system can be ordered as an option.

 

The baggage compartment is equipped with headphones holders. The luggage space allows for four standard airliner size cabin bags.

The acrylic glass canopy allows for spectacular views from the aircraft throughout your journey. Available in your choice of clear/blue/green or brown.

Full engine management system is included to monitor fuel pressure, fuel flow, oil pressure, oil temperature, CHT, EGT, MAP.


Fixed or variable pitch propeller options are available.

 

Safety

The VL3 is certified and tested in collaboration with the Czech Aerospace Institute. The VL3 was successfully tested to ultimate loads up to +15G's and -8G's.

Flutter tested up to 460 km/h. Parachute rescue system limits VNE to 305 km/h.

Airframe Parachute installed for emergency decent.
