Maiden flight: VUT100-13li SuperCobraMaiden Flight: VUT100-13li SuperCobra
It was party-time at the Czech aircraft manufacturer Evektor. On 24th October the four- to five seater VUT100-13li SuperCobra completed its 30 minute maiden flight in Kunovice.
Factory pilot Josef Charvat is very enthusiastic about the performance of the all-metal low-winger with retractable undercarriage. Under the cowling a fuel-injected Lycoming IO-580 provides 315 HP (231 kW). The cruising speed of 175 kts, 1000 ft/min climb rate and range of 1,000 NM, combined with a cargo capacity of 570 kg, make this a powerful machine.
