The SAMBA XXL is based on the very successful SAMBA (UFM-10). Excellent flight characteristics have been preserved while the cockpit size has increased to accommodate tall pilots. This makes the SAMBA XXL extremely comfortable during long periods of flight.

The SAMBA XXL is ideal for traveling, training and towing.
