Symphony Certifies SA160 For Doors Off Flight

Fly With The Wind In Your Hair, And A Wing Overhead

In response to numerous customer requests, Symphony Aircraft Industries (SAI) has announced that it has certified the Symphony SA 160 for "doors-off" flight.

The certification allows the aircraft to fly doors-off in two configurations -- either with the passenger door removed, or with both doors off the plane. In either configuration, the aircraft’s cruise speed is reduced by only 5.5 percent, according to the company.

The SA 160 is a high-wing design, featuring wing strut attachments aft of the cabin doors -- making it an exceptionally modern and economical photography platform. Removal of its doors is a logical next step.

Besides... there's nothing "like riding around with the top down on a sunny summer day, with the freedom of the wind in your hair. This exhilaration is truly another testament to fun flying in the SA 160," said Symphony’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Tim Baldwin.

The Symphony 160 platform, which is a FAR 23 certified two-seat aircraft, offers a roomy and cost-effective alternative to small, impractical four-place aircraft for either personal, corporate, or flight training uses.
