The work on the creation of the light-engine Bellanca Aries began in 1971, and American aircraft engineers did not use earlier models to create this aircraft, suggesting that the aircraft is different from the already available versions, and, as expected, the aircraft in its flight performance Had to surpass the aircraft of other American aircraft manufacturers, in particular, this refers to Cessna. Nevertheless, the Bellanca Aries aircraft was not widely used due to a number of technical problems, and for the entire production period, which lasted from 1973 to 1976 year, only 5 aircraft were built, of which, to date, there are 3 units in operation .

Aboard Air Bellanca Aries vessel can accommodate up to 5 passengers excluding the pilot's presence, which in turn could under certain circumstances to make this flying machine effective in terms of commercial use. The maximum flight range of this model is 1880 kilometers, which allows for air travel both on local airlines, and the inter-regional routes.

The power plant of the Bellanca Aries aircraft is represented by a Lycoming IO-540-B4C5 piston air-cooled six-cylinder aircraft engine, developing a power of 250 hp, which in turn allows providing a maximum flight speed of 346 km / h. The used aircraft engine is reliable and simple enough in terms of its operation and maintenance, which minimizes the costs of the owners when operating this aircraft.


Cabin Bellanca Aries


Fuselage Bellanca Aries model is different aerodynamic shapes, retractable landing gear, as well as a T-shaped tail, somewhat improving the stabilization of the aircraft during flight. Among other things, the aircraft has good maneuverability, moreover, noted that it is typical for small as well as for high flight speeds, which was appreciated by the few owners of the aircraft, which had purchased them.

Apart from the main production version, which received the name of Bellanca T-250 Aries, American aircraft manufacturers have implemented also release modifying Bellanca AG-250 Aries, characterized mainly by a somewhat transformed design. virtually no change was not done in the flight-technical terms.
