From this July, Italian  Next Aircraft company is going to start MD3 Rider production again.

Final version for 2012 will have couple of technological changes, bringing MD3 Rider again to the good position in the world  UL and LSA market. To fly 222 km/hour in 1,17m cockpit with 300kg payload for LSA version is still not bad.

Next MD3 Riders will be assembled in large new production facilities ,  located at Voghera airport near Milan, Italy.

By the words of  Roberto Treppiedi - as a first  they are going to finalize small set of planes from the subassemblies in stock. They ask us to help them with preparing of good new MD3 standard version and serial production starting - to eliminate bad solutions of former Flyitalia management.

Second day of the Voghera meeting, there was signed agreement between NEXT-aircraft and new dealer for South-Germany, Austria and Swizerland - Allgäu UL – Trade , Albert Zech - This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

After approving, all these changes will be covered by Czech type certification appendix - preliminary negotiated with LAA. So – next year can bring really NEXT MD3 Rider.
