New Kolb MK3 Mark 3 Extra Kit Airplane Light Sport Aircraft Experimental 2 Place. Unfinished Kit..
KOLB MK3 EXTRA KIT, Serial # M3X 00-2-00004. Early model MK3 "Xtra". Experimental light sport. Has separate flaps/ailerons. Steel parts are factory powder coat white. Dual controls. Nearly at quick build stage, needs one flap finished, wing tips finished, and all flying surfaces are finished and will need covering and paint (Not Included). Has paperwork, prints and manual. Decent used wheels, tires, disc brakes. (No Master Cylinder/s), new tail wheel, nuts, bolts, rivets, 2- 5 gallon fuel tanks, streamline strut fairings and hardware. I believe all parts are included but not 100% sure, I never did a thorough inventory when I bought it. No covering, no paint, no Lexan, no engine, no instruments and no prop included.
Presently to buy a new model (now called MK3 Twinstar) kit with these options would be $20K not including the fact that this one is nearly at the quick build stage, around a $5K option. I am not sure of differences between the MK3 Extra and the new model MK3 Twinstar but I believe they are basically similar.

Kolb Aircraft are nice performing short takeoff and landing aircraft with steel cage and aluminum framed, fabric covered flying surfaces. Folds in 15 min. for easy storage. The Mark III may be powered by a wide variety of engines from the 52 hp Rotax 503 to the 100 hp Rotax 912S or Jabiru 2200. To handle the more powerful and heavier engines, the Mark III was designed with the larger diameter (6") and thicker walled wing spars along with more ribs and a stronger drag strut.
