First CTMC lands in Australia

Recommended Posts

Had the pleasure today (Friday 9th April 2010) of unloading the first CTMC to be brought to Australia by Sports Aircraft Australia.

 

Couldn't help but be impressed by a number of things such as...

 

Quality/Standard of construction and finish.

 

Room in cockpit - a whopping 1.37 mtr (54") at shoulders. In comparison a C182 is listed as 1.67 mtr (42") cockpit width.

 

Relatively cheap price for the basic aircraft fitted with a Rotax 912 (100 hp) and steam gauges.

 

Fully adjustable seats fore & aft also rake... can accommodate a 120kg/6'6" person in comfort.

 

The aircraft is fully test flown by the factory before shipping and arrives in a container as shown in the attached picture. Assembly takes around 2 to 3 hrs and the agents should be flying only approx 24 hrs after taking delivery of the container. The aircraft arrives in virtually a "plug & play" condition.

 

Cruise at 75% power is shown as 125 kts TAS, with a fuel capacity of 100 litres.

 

It appears there really is a good option available for someone seeking a metal CT, not to mention those that want a genuine 120 kt+ touring aircraft with room to boot.
