This strategic upgrade catapults the MC-01 into a new realm of performance, offering a potent combination of power, efficiency, and unparalleled flight experience.

The integration of this powerhouse engine ensures that the MC-01 stands out in the light-sport aviation sector as a symbol of performance and reliability.

An Adventure Across Continents

To celebrate this significant milestone, Montaer is setting the stage for an unprecedented adventure – a "continental flight" from Brazil to the United States in the first MC-01 equipped with the Rotax 916iS engine. This journey will be captured and shared with aviation enthusiasts around the globe through a series of videos on YouTube, highlighting the aircraft's superior capabilities and the breathtaking vistas of aviation.
