AMD Alarus aircraft developed by US aircraft manufacturers as a multipurpose aircraft, which subsequently has been used not only in civil, but also military aircraft. The first work on the design of this small-engine aircraft began in the early 90-ies of the last century, however, the very aircraft struck in the production is not too long, and, since 2011 years, officially ceased to be produced.

The aircraft is most popular with private owners and schools for training future pilots. This aircraft is simple in terms of its control, has twin control, which is the best suited for training pilots, which was noted by many aviation instructors.

One of the most significant shortcomings of the aircraft AMD Alarus is the ability to take on board only two people, which was originally scheduled to American aircraft manufacturers, because, first of all, the aircraft was designed for training pilots, however, despite this, the private use is still There are at least two dozen aircraft of this model.

I found my AMD Alarus use of aircraft and military aviation, in particular, a number of countries in the world use this aircraft for training military pilots, and for sightseeing flights. These aircraft are available in countries such as Iraq, Canada and Peru.
