EXTRA Initiative

Walter Extra has always viewed aviation from his own special perspective. As one of the world's most successful competitive aerobatic pilots, he decided in the 1980’s to design and build his own aircraft. What began as an experimental one-man operation has since grown into an international success story. Today, that initiative has become the championship-based EXTRA aircraft line-up, including the aerobatic EA-200, EA-300L, EA-300LP, EA-330LT, EA330LC, EA330LX and EA-330SC aircraft. Each design masterfully blending performance and economy with the pure joy of flying.

EXTRA Advantage

Freedom. Luxury. Unparalleled performance and handling. They're all at your fingertips when you fly one of the extraordinary aircraft in the EXTRA line-up each backed by outstanding customer service and support. Take the step that takes you Above and Beyond.
