The EA300 is a two-seater aircraft suitable for aerobatic flights. It is suitable for competitions in the Unlimited category. The Extra 300 was designed in 1987 by Walter Extra, a German aerobatics pilot, and is built by Extra Flugzeugbau.
The Extra 300 has a fuselage of welded tubular steel, covered with aluminium and fabric. The centre wing has a carbon fibre composite spar and carbon composite covering. The wings have a symmetrical profile, with no angle of attack. This gives the aircraft the same performance when flying straight ahead or upside down.
The aircraft has a Lycoming AEIO-540 injection engine that produces 300 hp. The Extra 300 is built for + or - 10 G with one person on board and ±8 G with two.
The first two-seater Extra 300 made its maiden flight in May 1988, and German type approval followed in May 1990. The single-seater Extra 300S has been flying since 1992.
