aircraft Beechcraft 24 Sierra production was based on the family model Beechcraft Musketeer, very similar to the design of the new aircraft, with some some changes, in particular, a modified fuselage and partly optimized flight performance.

On board can accommodate small-engine aircraft from four to six people, making these planes are not only suitable for private flights, but also for passenger transportation over short distances.

Development of the first released model based on aircraft construction Beechcraft A23 Musketeer II, which is why the first version was named Beechcraft A23-24. As a power plant, the aircraft used the Lycoming IO-360-A2B piston aircraft engine, which had a power of 200 hp, which in turn was perfect for overcoming short distances at a speed of 250 km / h. (maximum flight speed) and transportation of five passengers on board.

A distinctive feature of the fuselage of the aircraft was a large number of side windows, designed so that each of the people on board could observe the flight produced.

Just three years later, after the basic production model, the American aeronautical engineer presented an updated version of the aircraft - the model Beechcraft A24R Sierra 200. The new modified version has a number of technical improvements, such as retractable landing gear during the flight, which provided most the best aerodynamic performance. Among other things, on the planes of this model it has become established a new, easy to maintain aircraft engine Lycoming IO-360-A1B capacity of 200 hp, and in addition, has also been increased and a maximum take-off weight of the aircraft.


Cabin Beechcraft 24 Sierra


Model Beechcraft A24 Sierra appeared in mass production in the middle of the year 1970, in this case, the main innovations of this version only affected domestic interior - New passenger seats were able to adjust, ensuring the most comfortable air travel.

In 1974 year, appeared on the market model Beechcraft B24R Sierra 200, which received a number of improvements, including the luggage often have a wide door, which in turn allows more efficient to transport different kinds of goods, and itself the aircraft was equipped with new avionics means.

In the fall of 1976 years, was presented the latest model of the family Beechcraft Sierra - Beechcraft S24R 200 the Sierra, is an improved version of the previous model. The new propeller and some mutated form of the wing, the plane had a higher rate, in particular, the aircraft could disperse up to 260 km \ h.

Most of the aircraft Beechcraft 24 Sierra is currently operated by small airlines around the world, and about 300 units of these aircraft is privately owned.
