Details

It is a true "multi-role" aircraft, able to operate out of minimal landing strips of under 200 metres length but with the ability to cruise at high speeds (215 kph) thanks to its clean, aerodynamic lines. Standard fuel tanks are 2 x 32 litres, but many users prefer the 2 x 45 litre "extended range" tanks which allow a non-stop capability in excess of 1000 km. Its 10 meter wingspan with Fowler flaps give it outstanding low speed handling qualities down to 56 kph.
