Despite the fact that at the end of the 60s, biplanes as such almost completely outlived their usefulness, the American designer decided to design an aircraft of a similar design. This was primarily due to the fact that the design of the aircraft provided the aircraft with greater maneuverability, which is extremely important for an aircraft of this type, and in addition, the wing itself was greatly strengthened, which allowed the aircraft to overcome higher G-forces.

Acro Sport II aircraft design was carried out on the basis of single sport aircraft Acro Sport I, at the same time, the changes only to a small extent affected the constructive additions and technical solutions - in general, except for the capacity, planes are very similar.

Needless aircraft Acro Sport II has small dimensions, it actually has important effect on the controllability of the data the aircraft, to minimize resistance in flight and increases a quality as maneuverability - the length of the aircraft is only 5,75 m, with a wingspan in 6,6. M.

Aircraft Acro Sport II has a fairly narrow scope of its application, as a rule, in this case we are talking only about the operation of the aircraft as a sports plane, however, these aircraft are also very widely used, and private owners for their own purposes.


Cabin Acro Sport II


This aircraft is ideal for performing aerobatic stunts, and in fact, often involved in this area, and, thanks to a solid structure, aircraft, among other things is also very reliable, which successfully proved more than 40-year period of its operation.

Plane Acro Sport II can be boarded up to two people at the same time, the cabin has a An open type, and therefore be carried aboard kakih-libo goods, and even luggage is not possible, however, despite this fact, the aircraft used by a very large popular customers.

As the power plant is used four-cylinder piston aircraft engine Lycoming O-360, able to develop power in 180 hp, which is enough to ensure that the aircraft can accelerate to a maximum speed of flight in 245 km \ h. Maximum distance of the flight of the aircraft is very much limited to what is associated in this case with the scope of the aircraft, and is about 690 km.

Operation of these aircraft continues to the present day.
