The aircraft is no longer in production.
The aircraft was designed as a US FAR 103 Ultralight Vehicles two-seat trainer. It features a parachute-style high-wing, two seats in tandem, tricycle landing gear and a single 50 hp (37 kW) Rotax 503 engine in pusher configuration.
The aircraft is built from a combination of bolted and welded 4130 steel tubing. In flight steering is accomplished via foot pedals that actuate the canopy brakes via a 2:1 ratio block system, creating roll and yaw. On the ground the aircraft has lever-controlled nosewheel steering. The main landing gear incorporates sprung steel landing gear with large tundra tires.
When it was in production the XL2 was supplied in a number of forms. It could be purchased as a fully assembled and test flown aircraft, for US$9000 in 2003. It was also available as a just the basic carriage for US$3000 in 2003, with the buyer supplying his or her own canopy, instruments, engine and propeller. The company also built custom versions to order.
