AEROTECHNIK L13 Vivat
The L13 Vivat is an excellent all-metal two-place motorglider derived from the L13 Blanik by Aerotechnik factory *), located at the same airport as the Blanik factory. The wings, spar and aft fuselage were strengthened and modified, while the front fuselage was redesigned to house a roomy side-by-side cockpit and an engine in front (either a standard Mikron M III AE or a Limbach L 2000 EO1 as an option). More than 150 Vivats are operated worldwide **). Most of them are with a tandem retractable main wheel and tailwheel with retractable wing tip outriggers, while a small number were manufactured with two main wheels under the wings and one tailwheel. Unlike other motorgliders in this class, the Vivat is a true soaring glider thanks to its responsive controls, great roll rate, and low forces in the controls.
*) In 1999 the production of new Vivat motorgliders was suspended (as the Aerotechnik factory redirected its efforts towards manufacturing their "Euro Star" power planes). Blanik America continues to support Vivat owners with spare parts and documentation service.
**).The SEH, SL, SDM and SL models are Type-Certified in the U.S.A and Canada, and other countries. The Vivat has its own type certificate, entirely different from the L-13 Blanik.
