His rather unusual and unique design of the aircraft LH-10 Ellipse shall work of French designers and engineers, who were able to not only provide the aircraft sleek aerodynamic shape, but in fact, make it very attractive to future owners.

The aircraft from the beginning of its production could be interested not only in civil aviation, but also, in fact, has become interesting also the military, where it can be used as an observation and patrol aircraft, or the same as the training, allowing to train future pilots .

Due to its very compact size, and the length of the aircraft is only 5 meters and 11 centimeters aircraft has high maneuverability, however, because most lightweight design, can withstand large overload, as a consequence, as the sport of the aircraft operated can not. It can not on its board aircraft and transport loads, however, at an early stage of development and it is not planned by French design engineers.

Cab LH-10 Ellipse has a quite spacious, allowing unhindered and in a very comfortable environment to carry out air travel over distances of up to one and a half thousand kilometers, carrying on his board to two people - a pilot and a passenger, or the instructor and the trainee, when it comes to military use of the aircraft.

The aircraft LH-10 Ellipse is equipped with a piston engine Rotax 912 ULS with an output of 100 hp. Despite the relatively small thrust created by the engine, the aircraft can accelerate to sufficiently high speeds - the maximum speed of its movement is 370 km / h, which is suitable for a variety of purposes, regardless of whether the aircraft is used in civil aviation, or in Military aviation. The power plant is located at the rear of the aircraft, and performs a push function, which is also one of the factors why the aircraft can accelerate to high speeds.

Nevertheless, despite all the prospects of the LH-10 Ellipse model, the demand for it remains at a very low level, in particular, this is due to the high cost, which, according to 2011 data, amounted to about $ 1,1 million, which is comparable to at the cost of a business jet, however, at the same time it is known that at least 12 aircraft were built during the current production period.
