Tango 2

This is no light sport aircraft!



Home-Built Experimental Aircraft

Let’s face it. Real pilots want real airplanes. And the Tango is just that. A blazing fast, 200+ knots composite built aircraft. With top speeds up to 230 knots, the Tango has little competition to keep up with. And with prices less expensive then most light sport aircraft, you’ll get there in half the time for less money.

While the Tango certainly isn’t light sport, it sure can handle like a light sport at low speeds! Stall speeds of 57 knots ensure safe landings for low time pilots. With a short takeoff distances of 650 ft, it’s getting close to the envelope of STOL aircraft. Fixed gear ensures no landing gear mishaps, and affordable insurance, while still breaking the 200 knots magic barrier. 

For pilots looking for an unmatched combination of speed, range and performance in a safe, sleek, roomy, and affordable, two place aircraft. This combination is one-of-a-kind in the industry and the benefit to you is outstanding value. 

In our unique Builder’s Center program you can build your airframe, ready for firewall forward and instrument panel as little as 30 days. This is not just hype, it has been done. Simplicity of construction is one of the hallmarks of the engineering behind the Tango concept. This is one reason why three Tango builders are now owners of the company. They believe in it! 

With a cruise speed of 180 knots and a range up to 1,250 miles makes the Tango a productive and exciting aircraft to own. The stall speed of 57 knots and docile basic flight characteristics makes it a safe and attractive entry-level aircraft. Shot takeoffs and a fast climb rate make it a blast to fly. The low parts count, fixed gear, builder’s center option, and low drag design make the Tango Simply Fast.
