ICAO code: FAET
The ATEC 321 FAETA NG is the "New Generation" in Atec fleet and extends our product offer. Inspired by long experience and new ideas of pilots of Atec planes, we designed and produced the most advanced aircraft derived from the original Faeta´s conception. At first sight, the only difference is the shape of tailplane. The "NG"´s tail has classical cross-shaped configuration. We have created combination of the latest trends, aerodynamic purity and high performance. In addition we focused on modern and fashionable look. The aircraft is approved for operation in UL and LSA categories up to 600 kg MTOW.
The fuselage has standardly full-carbon composite structure made of aviation certified carbon fibres of the highest quality. The fuselage is thus very light also thanks to our new unique production technology.
Its elegant shape is highlighted by specific curves according to the latest fashion in design. Comfortable, upholstered cockpit is spacious with flexible adjustable seats and pedals. Also the luggage compartment provides lot of space and capacity.
The new "NG" is the number one in flight characteristics and has no competitor within its category. It is very manoeuvrable, but stable and with immediate reactions of controls. This plane is exceptional by its speed range with max. speed of 280 km/h and stall speed only 52 km/h.
The Faeta NG is the best option for daily flights, touring and also flight training.

ATEC 321 Faeta NG is cantilevered, low-wing, double seater aircraft with the puller engine. Seats are situated side-by-side. The landing gear is tricycle with steerable nose wheel. The composite main gear is designed for the load up to 600 kg. All wheels are covered with fairings. The wheels are fitted with four-piston hydraulic brakes of high efficiency. All-carbon tailplanes are designed in popular cross-tail configuration. The rudder with high aspect ratio gives dynamic look to the tail. Backswept wings are fitted with large slotted lift flap. The fuel tanks are inbuilt in wings with the total capacity of 100 L (2 x 50L) of fuel. The wings coating is made of carbon sandwich.
The cockpit provides enough space and comfort during longer flights. The cockpit is ventilated and heated. The demisting fan of the canopy helps to keep good visibility. Both seats and pedals are adjustable in all directions and can be individually adjusted and customized according to pilot´s body. The new luggage compartment offers enough space for luggage load up to 20 kg.
The new "NG", same as other Atec planes, can be surely equipped with various types of the most advanced avionics, glasscockpit or analogue instruments according to individual wish of the customer. The dashboard is easily accessible from both seats. All controls and indicators are situated in visual range of the pilot and crew.
The plane is controlled by the control stick which is doubled. The nose wheel is steerable by pedals with small turning radius. The lift flaps are controlled electrically. When flaps are moving, the aircraft is trimmed automatically and so the pilot does not even notice the change of the pitch.
The propulsion unit is essential for the NG´s dynamics. We only use ROTAX 912 ULS or iS Sport series engines.
Thanks to well-tuned combination of the engine and FITI propeller, the new Faeta NG becomes the one of the fastest UL aircraft with exceptional performance and low consumption.
