The design of the Beagle Pup aircraft began in the middle of the 60 of the last century, while British aircraft manufacturers took the military model as a basis, which was adapted for use in both military and civil aviation, which was the main reason for promoting this aircraft .

Unlike most of the previous models, the plane Beagle Pup received good aerodynamic shape that substantially altered its flight performance, making the most maneuverable at low flight speeds.

The Beagle Pup light-engine aircraft made its first flight in the 1968 year, although the actual release of these aircraft began in the 1967 year. Over the entire production period, which was very short, 176 aircraft of this model were built, of which, according to statistical data, at the end of 2013 of the year, 158 aircraft were in operation.

Depending on the modification of the aircraft Beagle Pup, can accommodate from two to four people on board, including also a pilot, and, contrary to expectations, the aircraft also enjoyed little popularity in the commercial sector of civil aviation. The very same aircraft can travel distances of up to 1040 kilometers, which is suitable for air travel to local destinations.

Cabin Beagle Pup

Depending on the version and version, the Beagle Pup aircraft are powered by Rolls-Royce Continental O-200A 100 hp piston aircraft engines, Lycoming 0-320-A2B hp 150 hp engines, and Lycoming 0-320-D2C horsepower 160 hp All operated power plants are quite reliable, however, in the version with the installed engine in 100 hp. there is a disadvantage in the low speed of flight, which is 204 km \ h. (maximum speed).

During the entire production cycle of British aircraft manufacturers 4 basic version of the aircraft was built Beagle Pup, differing mainly power plant and a number of other minor technical improvements.

  • Beagle Pup Series 1 (Pup 100) - Basic production version, equipped with a Rolls-Royce Continental O-200A piston engine;
  • Beagle Pup Series 2 (Pup 150) - modified version with aircraft engine Lycoming 0-320-A2B;
  • Beagle Pup Series 3 (Pup 160) - modification equipped with a power unit of piston type Lycoming 0-320-D2C;
  • Beagle Bulldog - The military version of a training plane. Only prototypes were built.
