Maestranza Central De Aviacion Triciclo-Experimental / XX-01
In 1947, the Maestranza Central de Aviación, the Central Workshops of the Chilean Air Force designed and built the first Chilean-designed aircraft, the Triciclo-Experimental (also designated XX-01), unveiled in May 1947. The Triciclo, designed by Alfredo D. Ferrer, was a low-winged monoplane of wooden construction with a fixed tricycle landing gear and a twin tail. The crew of two sat side-by-side in an enclosed cockpit, and were provided with dual flight controls.
