Both engines are are adapted to the requirements of the AEROLiTE 120) . It is steered with a classic yoke. Equipped with engine-E-Starter, the classic yoke and electric driven flaps, the AEROLiTE 120 expresses a touch of comfort and luxury.
The structure of the aircraft has been enhanced by introducing horizontal and vertical stabilisers to meet the high German safety requirements. The fuselage hoop has also been revised, it is additionally secured by an internal aramid rope. High quality standard instruments, a modified panel layout, strengthening of the nose wheel, safety improving modifications on the fuel supply and the redesign of electric systems ensure that the AEROLiTE 120 meets the high standard of the German quality label „Made in Germany“.
