Nihon University N-58 Cygnet
 
NU-58-Cygnet
 
The students of Nihon University, under the leadership of Dr Hidemasa Kimura, have designed and built two light aircraft. The second is a high-wing four-seat light-plane known as the N-58 Cygnet.
 
Although the Cygnet bears a close resemblance to the Piper Tri-Pacer, it is a new design utilizing existing Tri-Pacer components only in its undercarriage, engine mounting and control systems. Construction is all-metal, with fabric covering, and it is powered by a 140 hp Lycoming O-290-D2 engine.
