The 210HP Xtreme Decathlon!

The new XTREME DECATHLON with 210HP, Carbon Fiber Wide Chord Prop, and the "touch of glass" panel

The new XTREME DECATHLON with 210HP, Carbon Fiber Wide Chord Prop, and the “touch of glass” panel

At 161mph in level flight, 1625 fpm in climb, and with a 120 degree per second roll rate the Xtreme Decathlon lives up to its name! The Xtreme is a comprehensive redesign that includes new designs for the landing gear and wings as well as a 50 lb reduction in airframe weight. The firewall forward is completely new with an improved engine mount, new cowling design, 4 into 1 tuned exhaust system, and most importantly Lycoming’s New 210HP AEIO-390 under the hood.

The old saying “there’s no replacement for displacement” holds true for the AEIO-390. The extra 30 cubic inches of displacement plus an improved cylinder head design allows for an increase of 30HP and 58fl*lb of torque compared to the AEIO-360 used on the Super Decathlon. A longer and wider carbon fiber MT “Wide Chord” propeller is used to “soak up” all of that extra power and convert it into thrust resulting in significant performance improvements in takeoff, climb, cruise, and vertical penetration.

The Decathlon has always been a “jack of all trades” as the name suggests. The added power of the Xtreme Decathlon has yielded significant improvements in the airplanes short field performance and cruising speeds making it even more capable as a cross country and back country airplane as well as a weekend aerobat. No other airplane can rival the Xtreme Decathlons ability to perform in such a wide spectrum of flight profiles.
