American aviation engineers have begun to develop a light multi-purpose aircraft model Liberty XL2 in 1998. The new aircraft was intended solely for private use, however, despite this fact, the aircraft had extensive functionality, in particular, this aircraft can be used as a private aircraft for the transport of people, as an aerotax, as a training and Sports airplane. Initially it was assumed that the aircraft could also perform aerobatic stunts, however, the strengthening of the aircraft's design would inevitably lead to an increase in the cost of the aircraft and to an increase in its mass, so this idea was abandoned.

Aircraft Liberty XL2 model has a very compact size and good aerodynamic shape, all of which provide excellent maneuverability of the aircraft, which is very effective in this model of the aircraft.

The first flight of the aircraft model Liberty XL2 has made in April 2001 years, thus, all the tests have been carried out very successfully, in connection with which the project was named warranted, however, the actual production of the aircraft was engaged in aircraft company «Europa Aircraft». However, at present the production of aircrafts Liberty XL2 completed, which, incidentally, does not point to the fact that the demand for aircraft was low - for the entire release period, aircraft manufacturers have been built a few dozen aircraft of this model.

The cabin Liberty XL2 aircraft can accommodate up to two people - a pilot and one passenger, at the same time to transport cargo plane Liberty XL2 can not be accommodated due to the absence in the cabin of the aircraft free volume space that is mainly due to the design features aircraft. However, Liberty XL2 aircraft has proven itself in other areas of its application, in particular, as the training aircraft, as a sports aircraft, etc.

The power plant of multipurpose light air Liberty XL2 vessel consists of one Continental IOF-240-B piston aviation engine of the brand, which is developing a thrust of 125 hp, allows the aircraft to reach a top speed of its flight in 290 km \ h. The maximum range of the repetition of the model aircraft 1090 limited distance in kilometers, which, however, is quite acceptable.
