TECHNOLOGY: All-metal semi-monocoque
airframe, primary glued and riveted from
aluminum alloy sheets by blind rivets.
FUSELAGE COCKPIT CAGE is welded from
steel tubes. Its basic structure has firewall,
engine mounting hinges and front wheel
bracket in the front, doors and main gear
hinges on its sides and instrument panel
frame and seats brackets in the middle.
REAR FUSELAGE PART is riveted from
aluminum alloy sheets with integral fin and
tail hinges in the rear.
SIDE CANOPY DOORS hinged on the front
enables great view and easy access.
COMPOSITE ENGINE COWLINGS and rear
part of the canopy fairing create natural
aerodynamic shape without usual square
ALL METAL WINGS with simple
aerodynamically shaped strut and efficient
MS(1)-0313 airfoil with OMEGA-beam
pressed ribs and integral fuel tanks 72
liters. Ailerons and large flaps with 15o, 30o
and 42o deflection are hinged on rear help-
beam. Large aerodynamically shaped
wingtips increase wing efficiency.
Classic-type all-metal TAIL has
symmetrical NACA 12% profile. Elevator
has electrically controlled trim-tab as a
FULL DUAL CONTROL with classic joysticks
and pedals for both pilots.
Flap lever, trim lever and throttle are
placed on the central column. Elevator and
Ailerons are controlled by rods, Rudder is
controlled by wires in plastic tubes. Flaps
are controlled by electric actuator placed in
the cockpit ceiling.
Wings can be (optional) quickly folded to
the tail and horizontal tail surfaces can be
dismounted for transportation or storage.
TRICYCLE LANDING GEAR with steerable
16x4" nose wheel, composite legs of main
undercarriage and front wheel leg and fork
welded from steel tubes. 16x4” main
wheels have hydraulic disc brakes,
controlled by lever on the central column
