Beagle Terrier - British single-engine monoplane manufactured by «Beagle Aircraft Limited» in 60-ies of the last century.

Development of the Beagle Terrier aircraft began in the late 50s of the last century, while British aircraft manufacturers were able to develop a small multipurpose light-engine monoplane used both for the transport of passengers (out of commercial operation) and for the transport of small cargo with a total weight of up to 363 kilograms.

Initially it was assumed that the plane Beagle Terrier will not get great popularity among customers, but due to the small value of the aircraft, as well as simple and inexpensive maintenance, the aircraft continues to operate to this day, though, in fact, the model is considered obsolete.

His first flight of small-aircraft Beagle Terrier made in 1961 year, then almost immediately was put into production, where he stayed, in view of the emergence of modified versions to 1967 years.

On board the aircraft can accommodate one pilot and two passengers, and the model is very similar to earlier versions of the aircraft produced by the other British aircraft manufacturer, however, in terms of aircraft performance aircraft were highly variable.

As a power plant on the model Beagle Terrier is used in-line piston four-cylinder aircraft engine de Havilland Gipsy Major capable of developing power in 145 hp Nevertheless, the power plant did not satisfy most of the customers by dispersing the aircraft only up to the speed of 195 km / h (the maximum speed of the flight of the aircraft), while for other aircraft of this era, the flight speed was much higher. Among other things, the maximum range of the Beagle Terrier aircraft is only 515 kilometers, which limits the possibilities for its operation, and the limited maximum flight distance is mainly due to the technical characteristics of the power plant, which has made the British aircraft manufacturers even attempt to replace it.

In 1962 year, British aeronautical engineer presented a modified version, dubbed Beagle Terrier 2. This modification has not undergone major changes, mainly has been agreed with the international standards, which allows you to export the aircraft.

In 1965, the Beagle Terrier 3 model was introduced, which received a more advanced and easier to maintain Lycoming O-320-B2B power plant with a capacity of 160 hp, which significantly improved a number of flight technical indicators of this aircraft. including increased flight speed, increased the maximum range, etc.
