SIPA S.200 Minijet - lightweight sports French aircraft developed aircraft building company «SIPA» in 1952 year.

Development of light aircraft SIPA S.200 Minijet started by French engineers and designers in the 1948 year, thus, the design of the aircraft of this model had a very unusual appearance, which in turn gave a chance to attract potential buyers, which, unfortunately, for the manufacturer is not happened.

During the development of the aircraft SIPA S.200 Minijet, French designers have opted for the creation of a compact design, which in turn could increase the maneuverability of the aircraft of this model, and provide him with high demand. The length of the aircraft SIPA S.200 Minijet is only 5,18 meters, with a wingspan in 8 meters, however, due to the fact that the aircraft design was not sufficiently strengthened, the plane was found unsafe for flight, which in turn has led to a number of serious crashes.

The most vulnerable part of the planes SIPA S.200 Minijet are wings that simply neprisposoblen to overcome the high overload, which is typical for sports aircraft, given the high speed of flight and perform aerobatic stunts.

The cabin SIPA S.200 Minijet aircraft can accommodate up to two people, and the plane has been focused exclusively on the private use. Nevertheless, the aircraft can also carry and small in its volume of loads, weight should not exceed 357 kg.

Among other things, the aircraft of this model can also be used to train future pilots, however, given the high cruising speed flight, it was more talking about training sports piloting, which in turn reduced the scope of the operational capabilities of the aircraft, making it of little interest for the future owners.

The power plant of the aircraft SIPA S.200 Minijet presented a turbojet aircraft engine Turbomeca Palas, able to develop traction in 1,5 kN, which in turn due to the lightness and compactness of the design of the aircraft, provided he airspeed to 400 km \ h, however, the maximum flight range was largely limited and was only 560 kilometers that simply could not meet all the requirements of potential customers.

Over the entire period of production of aircraft models SIPA S.200 Minijet, was built just 7 aircraft, of which to date remained in operation only two instances, however, the activity of their operation is not carried out.
