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.
