mswvotec322

After 3 ½ years in the workshop of MSW Aviation AG in Wohlen came the first designs for the new kit airplane. A goal was to build in Switzerland an aerobatic aircraft. The prototype HB-YJY first flew on 6 April 2001 in Buochs, Switzerland. After 1 ½ years, the intensive test flight phase was completed without any incidents in November 2002.

On 9 April 2003 the second VOTEC 322 was completed, HB-YLA SN003. The airplane was built in approx. 12 months. Technically the airplane was revised and optimized, which led to that the machine approx. 30 kg lighter than the prototype YJY. HB-YLA was introduced to the public at the AERO 03 in Friedrichshafen.

The VOTEC 322 performs on the level  of the Sukhoi and Cap. Weighing approximately 650 kg, it is powered by a 330 HP Lycoming engine. The maximum speed is 400 km/h. Accelerations of 10 G's are problem-free in the ergonomic cabin layout for the pilot, with a cruising speed of 300 km/h and a range by approx. 1000 km. The span is 7,30 m.

The airplane was available in kit form for home building building.
