Initially, in the course of the design work, the Swiss aircraft designers and Italian designers have assumed that the aircraft will be used mostly for training future pilots, however, in the course of development, was proposed and subsequently implemented an initiative for multi-purpose use of this aircraft as a consequence, the aircraft began to operate and private owners for their own purposes.

On March 9, 1969, the FFA AS-202 Bravo aircraft performed its first flight, after which it almost immediately entered serial production, where it was for 27 years - from 1969 to 1991. During the entire production period, 214 aircraft of this model were built, of which, according to data for 2011, about 182 aircraft are in operation, some of which are used by schools for training future pilots, and some by private owners for their own purposes and needs.

Aircraft FFA AS-202 Bravo produced both in Italy and in Switzerland, at the same time, the aircraft on its way nearly identical to each other - the features are just some of the technical innovations, do not cause any changes in the flight performance of the air vessel.

On board the aircraft FFA AS-202 Bravo can accommodate up to 2 3 people, which is mainly dependent on the modification and year of manufacture of the aircraft. For cargo plane at the same time is not suitable, however, despite this fact, continues intensively exploited.

Depending on the modification of the aircraft, a Lycoming O-235-C2A four-cylinder piston aircraft engine is used, capable of developing 115 hp of thrust, which in turn provides the aircraft with a sufficiently high flight speed, which is up to 257 km / h. The maximum flight range of the FFA AS-202 Bravo model is limited to 785 kilometers, which, nevertheless, satisfies the conditions of the owners, although in some cases this indicator does not always reach the required level.

For all 27-year period of production, it was built 6 different modifications of the aircraft:

  • FFA AS-202-10 Bravo - Main production version, which appeared in 1969 year;
  • FFA AS-202-15 Bravo - Improved modification, designed for three people and equipped piston engine Lycoming O-320-E2A capacity 150 hp .;
  • FFA AS-202-18A Bravo - Triple modified version of the aircraft;
  • FFA AS-202-26A Bravo - a single modification with a powerful aircraft engine Lycoming AEIO-540 (260 hp);
  • FFA AS-32T Turbo Trainer - a single training version with the Allison 250-B17C turboprop engine (360 hp);
  • FFA 2000 / FFT 2000 / Eurotrainer 2000 - Improved training version of the aircraft.
