Fly-Fan Shark

 

Fly-Fan-Shark

 

The Fly-Fan Shark is a Slovak light aircraft designed by Frantisek Sustek and under development by Fly-Fan of Trenčín. The design was introduced at the Aero show held in Friedrichshafen in 2007 as a mock up and in 2011 as a flying aircraft. The aircraft first flew on 29 June 2011 and was intended to be supplied as a complete ready-to-fly-aircraft.

The Shark was designed with the goal of providing similar performance to other twin-engined light aircraft, but on 30% less power. It features a cantilever low-wing, a five-seat enclosed cabin, retractable tricycle landing gear and twin wing-mounted engines in tractor configuration.

The aircraft is made from Kevlar and carbon fibre. Its 11.4 m (37.4 ft) span wing employs a Jd 16 (40) 162 airfoil at the wing root, transitioning to a Jd 17 (40) 157 at mid-span and a Jd 15 (35) 136 at the wing tip. The wing has an area of 16.2 sq.m (174 sq ft) and mounts split flaps that can be extended 50 deg. The standard engines fitted are a pair of 160 hp (119 kW) Lycoming O-320-D1A four-stroke powerplants.

The aircraft has an empty weight of 1,221 kg (2,692 lb) and a gross weight of 1,500 kg (3,300 lb), giving a useful load of 279 kg (615 lb).
