Ukrainian private aerospace company Softex Aero presented an experimental four-seat, low-wing, T-tail, composite plane at SUN ‘n FUN international exhibition in the United States, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to the General Aviation News.

The wing is constructed as a single piece. According to Softex Aero’s Dara Voss, the composite fuselage then sits atop the wing.

“This plane was shipped to the U.S., from the Ukraine, two weeks ago and assembled over three days here in Lakeland,” he said.

Interestingly, the engines sit atop pylons, somewhat similar to the HondaJet’s engine configuration, and can accept Rotax 912 ULS/S, Lycoming IO-320 or TP100 turbine.

The V24 is priced at $550,000.
