About NEXTH

NEXTH is an intuition, before than a product, of its philosophy: pure passion for flying linked to technical engineering awareness as required to live it in safety without empiricism, designed and produced within the passion for doing things well.

NEXT-H as the “next”, and NEXT-H as “High performance”.. a new aircraft, your next one, titled by worldwide press as the most “cool” and “revolutionary” of the moment, the “last most sports plane ever seen”, a combination of fly freedom, performance and the intrinsic safety of the project, and whitin a passion for the most advanced design; innovative lines for the sector and one unquestionably unique aerodynamic behavior, verified by a team of skilled technicians using the latest technology.

Morelli international patented design

A PROJECT led by CS VLA and FAR23 (where applicable) obtaining at the first inspection the German Permit to Fly under LTF-UL certification process, developing also towards American LSA for a standard of absolute safety and certainty, without any compromises. Experienced craftsmen and technicians come together in a synergy of skills for the successful construction of an aircraft innovative and different from the past, respecting the indisputable top solidity and reliability of traditional metal construction with special steel frame and metal wings, using carbon components only for non structural and light elements.
