Aermacchi AL.60 Trojan 

LASA LASA-60

lasa60


Under the Lockheed name, designed by the Mooney brothers as a single-engine light transport aircraft in the same general class as the Cessna 180-185, it made extensive use of castings and forgings for ruggedness and simplicity. The wing is NACA 23016 at the root and NACA 4412 at the tip. Lockheed flew the first prototype in 1959. As its massive overheads in its main factories would price the six-seat aircraft out of its intended market, Lockheed looked for licensees in other countries for production. A new factility was purpose-built for Lockheed-Azcarate SA at San Luis Potosi, Mexico, where the LASA-60 was produced.

Eighteen of thirty-two LASA-60 built in Mexico in 1960 were for the Fuerza Aerea Mexicana - until the withdrawal of that type in 1968-69. The main licencee was Italy’s Aermacchi. The AL.60C featured an up-rated engine and a parachute door. It was this version, with a tail wheel, as the AL.60 C-5 Conestoga, which 10 were supplied to the Central African Republic from 1971 (two remaining in late 1997) and Mauretania (one remaining in late 1997).

The AL.60F-5 version with nose wheel undercarriage was sold to the Rhodesian Air Force. Other variants were made under licence in South Africa.
