IAR-824 - Romanian light multipurpose aircraft developed by «IAR» and formally discharged from the 1973, in small series.

Work on designing a light aircraft IAR-824 began Romanian design engineers in 1968 year, thus, the design of future aircraft several times radically processed until eventually got her on a valid residence. Initially, the plane had to be exclusively the status of the passenger aircraft, but eventually became a multi-purpose aircraft that according to experts, was to increase the demand there, which unfortunately did not happen.

The IAR-824 aircraft made its first flight in the 1971 year, while the aircraft design was further improved for eight months until the aircraft was officially certified in the 1972 year. In the production of the same aircraft IAR-824 entered the 1973 year, however, stayed here not long - the release of aircraft of this model was completed due to low demand, and for the entire production cycle was built only 10 aircraft.

The IAR-824 aircraft is able to accommodate up to 6 people on its board, including also one pilot, which, according to experts, could allow this aircraft to be operated in the commercial sphere. Nevertheless, the small volume of fuel tanks did not allow long-distance flights - the maximum flight distance of this aircraft is only 900 kilometers, so there was no actual demand for the IAR-824 model. At the moment, it is known about the existence of only 6 aircraft of this model, each of which is used by private owners for their own needs.

Among other things, the IAR-824 aircraft is also used to train future pilots, as well as to disperse gliders, although in fact, due to the extremely small release, this aircraft is used in this area very rarely, although there are various prospects for this.

As a power plant on light-engine aircraft IAR-824, the Lycoming IO-540-C1D5 piston six-cylinder engine is used, which can develop tractive power in 290 hp, which in turn is very acceptable, especially considering the type of aircraft. Nevertheless, due to some design features of the aircraft, the aircraft can accelerate only to small speeds - the cruising speed of the flight is 180 km / h .. while the maximum is limited to 205 km / h. The simplicity in servicing the aircraft engine of the IAR-824 is also one of the advantages of this aircraft.
