Aeroprakt A-26 "Volcano" - a light twin-engine aircraft, manufactured by the Ukrainian company "Aeroprakt" with 2001 years.

Development of light-twin-engine aircraft Aeroprakt A-26 «Volcano" was conducted on the basis of another model - Aeroprakt A-20, however, the Ukrainian aircraft builders have made a serious modification of aircraft, thereby ensuring a high popularity among customers.

The main innovation of aircraft Aeroprakt A-26 «Volcano" was reinforced fuselage structure of the aircraft that increased the safety of flights carried out, as well as power plant, consisting of two piston engines, allows you to move on quite acceptable airspeeds. However, the flight range of the aircraft was only 600 kilometers, which did not satisfy the requirements of a number of key customers.

His first flight of the aircraft Aeroprakt A-26 «Volcano" made in 1997 year, but the flight was exclusively test the character, and the aircraft itself was presented to the public only in the year 2000, after which will go into series production.

On board the aircraft Aeroprakt A-26 "Vulcan" can accommodate two people - a pilot and a passenger, and it was originally supposed to create an aircraft designed to carry at least two passengers without taking into account the pilot, however, for a number of reasons, subsequently from it was decided to refuse.

The maximum flight speed of the aircraft Aeroprakt A-26 «Volcano" is 180 km \ h., Which is much better than previous models produced by Ukrainian aircraft manufacturer. Moreover, aircraft wings Aeroprakt A-26 «Volcano" angled in 3 degrees, which in turn greatly improved aerodynamic performance of the aircraft in comparison with model A-20.

The power plant uses two Rotax 912S piston aircraft engines capable of developing 65 hp. each, which in the total volume is greater than that of previous models, but does not significantly affect the aircraft's flight performance.

Today, the production and release of aircraft Aeroprakt A-26 «Volcano" is completed, and mainly to the fact is the low demand among consumers, and, according to experts, this is due to the small distance of the flight, though, on the whole aircraft is much better adapted to perform the flight.

Subsequently, based on the model Aeroprakt A-26 «Volcano" was created by another, more powerful and reliable in terms of their operating model, which received the name Aeroprakt A-36 «Volcano».
