  • Description

    Here is the ideal little serial runabout for those who like that sort of thing - and can afford it.

    Ace pilot Commander Mario De Bernardi officially showed off the plane today to the general public and aeronautical technicians at Urbe Airport, Rome.

    The plane is the prototype of a small tourist plane designed and built by Bernardi and called "Airscooter".

    This little aircraft should bring closer the day of more universal flying for all; for it is equipped with a motor of only 75 c.v. and has unusual characteristics of safety and airworthiness. The cost is a modest one.

    It develops a maximum speed of 215 km per hour and stalls at 55 km per hour.

    Another advantage is that the plane needs a space of only 40 metres for landing and take-off, and weighs empty 270 Kgs and can carry a pay-load of 200 kgs. including the pilot.
