The development of this aircraft began with Italian engineers and designers in 1977, and in just one and a half years, it was possible to create a small aircraft capable of carrying passengers on routes of local and regional importance, in view of which, as expected, the aircraft was to gain high popularity among Customers, however, due to a number of technical flaws and a rather high cost, the project of this civil aircraft was doomed to failure - for the entire production period there was a post Only 11 aircraft have been rotated, of which, at present, only two are known to operate.

Despite the fact that his first flight of the aircraft Vulcanair Canguro implemented in 1978, the project was sent for another four years of technical improvements, which led to a rise in the cost of the aircraft and the identification of new problems with the operation, which is why a few years of being in production, the aircraft was not able to win customers.

On board the aircraft can accommodate up to 11 people - 2 9 crew members and passengers, which in turn exceeds the capabilities of other aircraft, but two turboprop power plants burned tremendously large amount of fuel, which in turn makes the operation of the aircraft inappropriate. In fact, the aircraft is also suitable for transportation of goods, however, in this case, its transport characteristics are limited dimensions and maximum cargo weight in ton 1,5.

Two turboprop aircraft engine Allison 250-B17C, used the plane as a power plant, able to disperse the aircraft up to speed in 306 km \ h. That quite a bit, especially in view of the large fuel consumption. The power plant of the aircraft has a high reliability, however, is very expensive in terms of its maintenance. Maximum range of flight of the aircraft is 1580 kilometers.

Aircraft Vulcanair Canguro was designed by Italian aircraft manufacturers in two different versions, among which is to specify:

  • Vulcanair SF600 Canguro- Version of 1982 years, with turboprop engines used Allison 250-B17C;
  • Vulcanair SF600A Canguro- Improved version with increased maximum vzlёtnym weight, altered the profile of the wing, power plant Allison 250-B17F / 1 and a number of other minor technical changes and innovations.
