    Description

    The Pottier P.220S Koala is a French two-seat light homebuilt aircraft and built by Avions Pottier.

    General Information

    The Koala is a mainly metal construction low-wing monoplane with a swept-back single fin and powered by a 75 hp (56 kW) VW/Limbach engine. It has a fixed tricycle landing gear and an enclosed cabin for two side-by-side.

     

    Further three and four seat variants were also developed, and others with different engines have also been built in the Czech Republic by Evektor and Aertotechnik, and in Italy by SG Aviation.
