Spanish kit plane manufacturer Vol Mediterrani and their North American marketing arm Esqual North America claim that this sleek two-seat Esqual VM-1 can be built in less than 500 hours by an inexperienced builder. Cruise speed is specified at 165 mph with a Jabiru 3300 engine. Hoping for a shot at the coming Light Sport Aircraft market, they also claim a maximum speed of 115 kt with a Jabiru 2200 engine and a "suitable prop."
