MSW Aviation Votec 252T



The Votec 252T is a side-by side seat single engine kitbuilt light-sport development of MSW's earlier tandem seat Votec 322 aircraft. The prototype, powered by a modified Lycoming IO-540-J3A5 flat-six engine, marries the wooden wings and empennage to a new, carbon fibre fuselage, though a carbon fibre wing is under development. All flying surfaces are straight tapered and square tipped, the wing low mounted and the tailplane located on the upper fuselage; the rudder extends down to the keel. The ailerons are balanced with external spades.

The Votec 252T has a cabin over the wing, with baggage space behind the seat, under a single piece canopy. It has a fixed tricycle undercarriage with fuselage mounted cantilever legs and with speed fairings on all wheels. The nosewheel casters; there is a small tailskid for rudder protection.

Designed by MSW Aviation and built by Wassmer Aviation in Switzerland, the first prototype flew on 26 June 2009, by October 2011 only the first prototype had flown. A second prototype with a 260 kW (350 hp) Lycoming AEIO-580 engine, redesignated the Votec 352T, was under development but had not flown by October 2011.
