N81EU was built in Detroit, Michigan, USA as the first Europa kit in
the USA between 1993 and 1997 by Thomas Scherer, a German Consular Officer.
Power comes from a Rotax 912 coupled with an Airmaster Variable Pitch Propeller.
N81EU has crossed the Atlantik Ocean in 2000 and the Pacific Ocean in 2001. In 2004 the trip around the world was completed by Orbit III the flight from Mongolia back to Germany. Right after the completion of the flight around the world this Europa crossed the Atlantic Ocean again via the Azores and after arriving in Newfoundland proceeded to Los Angeles, California where she has found a new home.
This Europa has flown in 4 continents and 24 countries - many of which are a
first for the Europa-Family. She has shown the reliability of homebuilts and the impressive
economy which which a Europa can cover great distances usually reserved to commercial airliners.
