Sbach 342 Receives EASA Type Certification

Company Says Aircraft Is Gaining A Foothold On The Aerobatic Competition Circuit

The EASA has granted Type Certification for the Sbach 342, a two seat aerobatic aircraft, the airplane's maker XtreamAir said Tuesday.

The Sbach 342 can claim many firsts, including the first certified all-carbon fiber aerobatic aircraft, the first subjected to full occupant crash testing, the first with the main fuel tank located in a separately vented compartment away from the cockpit, the first with full airframe fatigue testing, and the first Type Certificate issued to a new aircraft manufacturing company since EASA's inception, which the company says when taken together makes the Sbach 342 "the best and safest aerobatic machine to take the the skies."

So far 19 of the Sbach aerobatic are flying and the company says they are already starting to achieve success in local and international aerobatic competition. Sbach aircraft have become the choice of many respected competition and airshow pilots including World Champion Eric Vazeille, multiple British Aerobatic Champion Gerald Cooper, French Aerobatic Team members Kathel Boulanger (Vice European Champion on Sbach 342) and Mikael Brageot (9th overall on 2010 EAC on Sbach 342) Top British Formation Team "Matadors", Paul Bonhomme and Steve Jones.
