The Tucano first time with the Rotax 915 (135 hp) at Copperstate Fly-in. The engine reserved great surprise in its performance by flying easily to 9,500 ft without having hiccups. The handling of the plane is very pleasent and manouvrable. The Tucano likes to turn. By far the best engine for our plane!
ANOTHER YEAR HAS GONE AND IT WAS A PLEASURE TO MEET YOU !
WE HOPE NEXT YEAR TO COME BACK WITH MORE EXCITING NEWS.

Some memories of the last show in Arizona… The Tucano-R flew from our American company in Texas, Archer City. The weather was nice and we met some very passionate pilots. Also Dan Johnson had finally a flight on our experimental warbird…. copy and paste this link to read his article and see his impressions….
Yesterday the Tucano #1705 was delivered in South Africa to his new owner Farren.
We met Farren this year @ Oshkosh 2018 and he came to see the aircraft and also to get the chance to fly it.
We wish him all the best and hope he will enjoy the assemblage of the kit. Keep us in the loop Farren and thank you to sharing with us the unload moment!
In occasion of the recent EAA Airventure, we have flown our last Tucano with retractable landing gear. The aircraft is now back in Archer City available for any pilot who wish to have a ride.
I hope you have liked it as much as we have liked to fly it there. We look forward to see you next year!
Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
