  • Description

    A NEW TWIN-ENGINED GENERAL PURPOSE AIRCRAFT, THE DORNIER "SKYSERVANT", IS EXPECTED TO BE TAKING TO THE SKIES SOON AROUND THE WORLD. THE WEST GERMAN-MADE 'PLANE CAN CARRY UP TO 15 PEOPLE, CAN BE QUICKLY CONVERTED TO CARRY CARGO, IS EXCEPTIONALLY RUGGED, AND CAN OPERATE FROM SHORT LANDING FIELDS.

    BEING A HIGH WINGED PLANE, THE DORNIER SKYSERVANT CAN BE EASILY CONVERTED TO EITHER FLOAT GEAR OR WHEEL/SKI INSTALLATION. IT WAS ESPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR OPERATING IN REMOTE AREAS WITH MINIMUM FACILITIES. SIMPLICITY OF DESIGN AND RUGGED CONSTRUCTION MEAN THAT A MIMIMUM MAINTENANCE IS REQUIRED.

    THE SKYSERVANT CAN TAKE OFF WITH A GROUND RUN OF 500 FEET (152 METRES) AND LAND IN 470 FEET (142 METRES).
