HAL Pushpak - Indian multipurpose single-engine monoplane, produced by «Hindustan Aeronautics Limited» at the end of 50-x - 60-ies.
The main reason to start development of the aircraft HAL Pushpak was the need to ensure their own civil aviation sector multi-purpose aircraft able to apply for the transport of persons, and for the carriage of goods at short distances.

Despite the fact that the flight performance of the aircraft HAL Pushpak largely inferior to other aircraft of this type, the aircraft continues to operate to this day, which mainly contributed to the low cost of the aircraft, as well as cheap maintenance.
Design of small-aircraft HAL Pushpak was conducted on the basis of a model Aeronca ChiefManufactured in 30-x - 40-ies American aircraft company «Aeronca», at the same time, thanks to the unification of certain components and parts, spare parts between the two models can approach each other, which is one of the reasons for the fairly cheap service that model.

In the cockpit HAL Pushpak can accommodate up to two people at the same time, thanks to the management of paired, the aircraft operated by Indian flying school is actively preparing for the future pilots, although more aircraft of this model is used by households for their own use. Application HAL Pushpak aircraft in commercial aviation is not possible, due mainly to the small distance of flight is only 400 kilometers, which in turn is not always appropriate to meet the basic requirements and even on the basis of the type of aircraft.

On board the aircraft and can accommodate a certain amount of cargo - about 120 kilos, but the joint transportation, in this case the passenger is not possible that to some extent affects the actual use of the aircraft.
Powerplant HAL Pushpak presented fairly low-powered four-cylinder piston aircraft engine Continental C90-8F able to develop maximum traction in 90 hp The maximum flight speed of this aircraft is only 144 km \ h. However, as previously stated, the model still remains quite popular to this day thanks to its multi-purpose.
Over the entire period of production aircraft were built HAL Pushpak 163 unit of the aircraft, of which, according to some sources on 2012 year of operation, there were about 98 aircraft.
