IAR-46. Specifications. A photo.
IAR-46 - ultra-light Romanian civilian aircraft manufactured by «IAR» to 1994 years.
The design and subsequent development of ultra-light aircraft IAR-46 conducted Romanian design engineers exclusively for private use on the territory of the country, while, initially, was tasked to create inexpensive, but at the same time reliable aircraft that can quickly attract potential customers.
Full implementation of the project required two years of work of the Romanian aircraft manufacturers, and in 1993 year, the first time the aircraft was able to climb into the sky, and after a few months has been put into production.
Despite the relatively low cost of the aircraft, the aircraft IAR-46 remained almost uninteresting for customers - according to 2008 years, it managed to realize an average 2-3 aircraft during the year, which shows that in fact, the project turned out to be for the company «IAR» failure.
Design feature of the aircraft IAR-46 is quite stocky fuselage and T-shaped tail, the aircraft provides high maneuverability and stability during flight. Due to limited space on board the aircraft, cargo aircraft that is not possible, which in turn limits the scope of operation.
In the cockpit of small-aircraft IAR-46 can accommodate only two people at the same time, space is very limited, which in turn makes the air travel is not the most comfortable. The maximum flight range of this aircraft is limited 800 kilometers, which is also quite a bit, and not everyone meets the requirements. In addition to the transport of persons, aircraft IAR-46 also operated for training future pilots of aircraft piloting skills, but even here there is some limitations in use.
Powerplant IAR-46 presented piston engine Rotax 912 F3 / A3 developing traction in 80 hp that is acceptable enough for this small-engine aircraft. The maximum flight speed of the aircraft IAR-46 215 limited km \ h., Which satisfies the requirements of the customers, however, because of the limited applicability of the aircraft, in fact, it does not reflect on the popularity of the aircraft.
According to official data of the Romanian aircraft company «IAR», for the period of 1994 2008 year was realized only 23 aircraft of this model, and therefore it is expected that in the future production of aircraft will be closed due to lack of actual demand for them.
