The Sparker offers the Stratos Magnum 601 ballistic recovery chute. The design of the Sparker also incorporates a Kevlar wrapped cockpit. TL has engineered the Stream and the Sparker to have crumple zones not dissimilar to an automobile. The Kevlar keeps the carbon from shattering and the crumple zones help to absorb impact in the unfortunate event of a collision.
Wide and versatile flight envelope. Cruise speeds of 165-175 kts (916iS) with a stall speed of 44 kts and up to 2000 fpm climb. This wide envelope is due in part to the electric slotted fowler flaps which prove very effective at slowing the aircraft down.
