Tucano R – “Experimental”

The Flying Legend Tucano R-Experimental replica of the Tucano with retractable landing gear and variable pitch prop, is the right choice of aircraft for pilots who dreamed of fly a warbird with the feel of flying a military fighter. 

Thanks to its heavy-duty structure and the new wing design, it flies very stable allowing to safely perform basic acrobatic maneuvers.”
