Extra Aircraft and Southeast Aero to Unveil a Quantum Leap in Aerobatic Aircraft

The Extra NG — the next generation of aerobatic aircraft

Oshkosh, Wisconsin — July 17, 2019 — Extra Aircraft announces it will unveil its next generation of aerobatic aircraft during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, at the Aerobatic Center adjacent to Boeing Plaza – Date/Time: Monday July 22, 2019 at 1:30 pm.

Open your eyes to a whole new dimension of aerobatic aircraft featuring an all-carbon rigid base frame - a first in aerobatic aviation history. The Extra NG truly represents a quantum leap forward by offering its owner not just a stunningly beautiful silhouette, but also an ergonomically advanced cockpit. It is designed for maximum pilot comfort and equipped with state-of-the-art avionics. Improved aerodynamics permit the highest degree of maneuverability and precise handling up to +10g/-10g while also making the Extra NG a “really fast” aircraft.

“We have achieved the most advanced and comfortable cockpit, the most responsive and harmonious controls ever, and a sleek new look” said Walter Extra. “I’m very excited about this plane and can’t wait to share it with other pilots.”

The Extra brand name has long been synonymous with the highest standards in aerobatic aircraft providing owners with real next-generation technology. In the new NG, we have elevated our excellent workmanship to an even higher level. The NG represents the next step in Extra Aircraft’s 30+ year tradition of experience and innovation.
