This is the Great Planes Avistar Elite .46 GP/EP ARF. The Avistar Elite is a great step up from a flat bottom wing trainer, or is suitable as a first airplane with the help of an instructor.

The Great Planes Avistar Elite is the perfect airplane for progressing from basic training to aerobatics using one plane, with a flight instructor's assistance. Its tricycle landing gear and high wing mounting boosts your confidence by adding stability and easy ground handling. The semi-symmetrical airfoil offers greater maneuverability as soon as you're ready.
