The MXS is a single seat, carbon fiber aircraft utilizing advanced, state-of-the-art composite materials, sophisticated development tools, novel processes and world class engineering skills blended to create a unique combination of structural performance, quality and durability. With immediate presence both dynamically and statically, the MXS clearly demonstrates its purpose and intent. This presence and aggression is communicated through technology on show.
Combined with technically justifiable design features the MXS is a showcase of visible engineering detail.
