SAI-KZ8-1

 

The SAI KZ VIII was an aerobatic sport aircraft first built by Skandinavisk Aero Industri in Denmark in 1949. It was a low-wing cantilever monoplane of conventional configuration with fixed tailwheel undercarriage and a single seat. The KZ VIII was custom-built by SAI for the Danish aerobatic display team Sylvest Jensen Luftcirkus, in which Peter Steen piloted the aircraft in some 50 performances in summer 1950. At the same time, a full set of parts for a second aircraft was produced, but this was not assembled until 1959.
