Laco LACO-125

laco125


The LACO-125 is a sturdy two-seat biplane that is easy to fly yet very agile. To aid the builder, there are no castings, forgings or other difficult-to-build or obtain parts. The fuselage is a Warren truss type of chrome-moly tubing with wood formers and stringers. The wings are conventional two-spar construction with wood ribs and chromemoly fittings for strength. This homebuilt derives its designation from the use of a 125-hp Continental in the prototype which is interchangeable with the 145-hp engine. The weight distribution of the LACO-125 is such that larger four-cylinder powerplants can be substituted.

 

The first, N1KN, was flown on 29 May 1977.
