A-42 - a multi-purpose twin-engine amphibious aircraft designed in 2005, the Russian aerospace company "Aircraft Manufacturing Company" Chaika "."
Russian multipurpose amphibious aircraft L-42 Samara aircraft manufacturers began to be designed in the early 2000-ies, when this new aircraft to be used in various fields and sectors of civil aviation. This aircraft is the best adapted for the carriage on its board a small number of passengers and cargo, it can be used not only as a private jet, but also as a means of commercial air.
Despite the fact that the plane model A-42 yet been put into production, the original version of the aircraft is still positioned as an experimental prototype, which subsequently underwent a number of significant changes, with, this applies to both the design part, and technical, which provided the aircraft greater promotion and has led to an increase in production capacity.
Aircraft A-42 has a relatively small size of the fuselage, which ensures a good handling and maneuverability acceptable, which in turn in a certain way also has an impact on the safety of manufactured flights.
The first flight multipurpose amphibian model A-42 held in 2005 year, and due to the fact that the aircraft is fully completed all the necessary tests, the project was considered a success and in the same year the aircraft was sent to the serial production, which continues to the present day, mainly due to the presence of needs.
Russian amphibious aircraft L-42 able to transport on its board for up to four people, including the crew consisting of 1-2 people (aircraft control is allowed if there is only one pilot) and 2-3 passengers, including ensures the aircraft the ability to use in the commercial sector, such as air taxis, as a tourist aircraft, etc.. On board the aircraft A-42 there is enough space for placing a small amount of cargo, which also, in turn, found a very significant use of this multi-purpose aircraft.
Power plant multipurpose amphibious aircraft consists of two four-cylinder piston engine brand Rotax 912ULS, each of which has its own traction in 100 hp A sufficiently powerful propulsion system allows the aircraft to reach speeds in 210 km \ h. (Maximum value) at the same time, the maximum range of A-42 flight model is 1100 kilometers.
In addition to the basic version, the Samara aircraft manufacturers have implemented and also the release of the upgraded version amphibian - model A-42M has improved aerodynamics, improved performance and higher rates of speed and flight range.
