Murphy SR 3500 Moose

murphmooflo


The Murphy SR3500 Moose is a STOL aircraft capable of operating from wheels, floats or skis. Featuring all metal construction, the pre-formed and pre-punched parts suit the first time builder.

The empty weight of the SR 3500 was increased 2% over the SR 2500 Super Rebel to prepare it structurally for more powerful engines, speed increase, and a 17% payload increase. Most of the changes are to the outside of the structure, including doublers added to the wing and horizontal stabiliser roots. A stronger set of rudder and elevator horns and the undercarriage has been strengthened. The structure was stactically loaded to 8400 lb on each wing (5.3G) and the torsional  load tests were equivalent to a 220 mph dive with a 4 G pull-up with full aileron deflection.
