The Edge 540 is an experimental single engine, single place, aerobatic airplane. It is constructed from a steel tube fuselage and composite wing, empennage and fairings. Powered by a modified Lycoming IO-540EXP engine, the aircraft has exceptional aerobatic performance and is ideal for use in competition aerobatics and airshow displays.

Capable of a 420 degree per second roll rate and a 3,700 foot per minute climb rate, it has been flown to victory on the international Unlimited aerobatics circuit several times since the mid-1990s.
