VULCANAIR V1.0

Meet the V1.0! The new certified single-engine aircraft by Vulcanair.
Thick versus thin, durable versus expendable, in line with Vulcanair's design
philosophy: durability safety and exceptional value.

With the V1.0, Vulcanair leverages its long experience in designing and
manufacturing more complex multi-engine aircraft and aims to the popular
single-engine piston market.

Excellent aircraft performance, state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, with
metal durable construction, modern avionics and exceptional value in terms of
acquisition costs make the V1.0 a serious alternative in today's piston single
engine aircraft arena.

The V1.0's structure is a combination of soldiered steel tubes arranged in an
articulate reticular fashion (main cabin) coupled with a riveted aluminum wing,
tail cone and empennage sections. This arrangement insures a strong protective
cabin for pilot and passengers and a lightweight structure altogether.

Design Features and Information

V1.0The V1.0 is powered by the 180 hp Lycoming IO-360-M1A that is capable of running with AvGas or alternative fuels. To satisfy the owner's profile, the aircraft is offered with a choice of a fixed pitch propeller or a constant pitch propeller (optional).

The aircraft cabin is extremely functional with four seats and three doors and a luggage capacity of 40 kg (88lb) in a separate and dedicated compartment.

The aircraft cockpit has been designed to keep all the commands and switches and circuit breakers in an ergonomic position for the pilot and its shape has been designed to minimize parallax errors.

The standard avionics package of choice features a Garmin G500 coupled with a GTN650 unit and a JPI digital engine monitoring system. Mid Continent's latest digital back-up digital instrument (SAM) is offered standard in the aircraft package as well as an AoA (angle of attack indicator). An optional full IFR version is also available.

Among the characteristics of the V1.0 there is the aircraft semi-aerobatic classification, which further expands the V1.0 training and utility ambitions.
