Bakeng Deuce is a small-engine monoplane designed and manufactured in the United States in the early 70-ies.

In the development of small-aircraft Bakeng Deuce American aircraft manufacturers rely solely on the support of the aircraft by the private owners, and despite the fact that the production of these aircraft was not enough mass in the production of this model is to this day.
The simple design, high reliability of the controls and the power plant, as well as the low price attracted future customers, however, for 45-year period (from 1970 2015 on year) was built only 120 aircraft.
On board the aircraft Bakeng Deuce can accommodate only two people - a pilot and a passenger, thus, the plane to a greater extent not intended for passengers, since the maximum range of its flight is only about 700 kilometers, while as much as possible to reach speeds of all only 225 km \ h. The presence of a small space on board an aircraft is one of the biggest drawbacks of the aircraft. American aircraft builders originally tried to create a modernized version of accommodating up to four people aboard, but later had to abandon because it would greatly increase the cost of the aircraft.

However, due to the high maneuverability, the plane is quite suitable to perform aerobatic stunts. The fuselage of the aircraft is well hardened, but the absence of cabin itself does not affect the security, but at the same time limits the maximum lift height.
As the power plant on the aircraft used Bakeng Deuce piston aircraft engine four-cylinder Lycoming O-290, quite robust in terms of its use, and inexpensive in terms of maintenance. The power plant of the aircraft is able to develop the capacity to 150 hp, which is enough given the limitations caused by the aircraft structure.

Due to its small size, the plane has a minimum aerodynamic drag, and therefore significantly reduced fuel consumption, however, due to the small fuel tank, flight distance is very much limited.
During the year, the US aircraft company «Bakeng Deuce Airplane Factory» produces from the 2 5 to airplanes of this model, however, gradually declining trend in demand, which, in all likelihood, during 5 years may lead to the termination of the release of the aircraft.
Among other things, based on the model Bakeng Deuce was once Implemented release biplane with aircraft performance characteristics similar to the original model, however, because of the continued lack of demand, production will no longer start.
