The Vector 600 is a multi-axis ultra light aircraft built in the 1980s. Intended for amateur construction, it consists of an aluminium tubular frame and surmounted by a dacron-lined wing held by guy wires.
The Vector is equipped with a high wing, a V-tail and a propeller. It is a three-axis aircraft but does not have pedals: the steering is done only on the control column.
Its light structure allows it to fold and it is thus possible to transport it on a car gallery. The French importer had even nicknamed it “the windsurfing of the air”.
The Vector is capable of short take-offs and landings, with a run of only 35 m at takeoff and 60 m for landing.
The 610 version differs from the 600 version by its improved wing allowing better performance at low speed, by a reinforced structure and by a suspension landing gear by sandow.

Our Vector 600, meanwhile, was recovered in Corrèze in 2009 from one of the former owners of the Vector 610, who had to move, had subsequently bought his own Vector.
