slep-storch


The Slepcev Storch is a kit plane designed by Nestor Slepcev and is produced at the factory in Beechwood, Port MacQuarie, Australia. The Slepcev Storch is a dual control 75% scale replica of the Feisler Fi-156 Storch modified for simplicity. Initially designed in 1992 as a single seater, the Slepcev Storch is produced as a two seat tandem Ultralight STOL aircraft.

The Slepcev Storch is JAR-VLA certified, Type Certificate No.VA505 issued by the Australian CASA on 14 October 1991. It also meets Australian Noise Certification to standard 66.8dBA.

The plane was designed around a light fuselage rated at +6/-3G. Reportedly it will fly as slow as 20 mph with full flaps and 30% power. The construction is 4130 chromemoly steel tubing for the fuselage, rudder and elevator. The wings are all-aluminium and the main landing gear is made of 4130 tubing with 10 inches of travel. Standard wheels are 8.00 x 6 mains, and a Maule tailwheel. Brakes are hydraulic disc, and the fuel is contained in the wings.

The kit consists of JAR-VLA certified components and is fully welded with the fuselage and empennage primed for protection against corrosion. Also supplied are upholstered seats, the main landing gear, wheels, hydraulic disc brakes and the Maule tailwheel. The aluminium wingspars and ribs are pre-drilled and the lightening holes are flanged. All the hardware is included, as are the wingskins. Much of the control system is installed, including the stick and all of the fuselage pushrods. The Lexan windows are supplied, and all hardware. No special tools are required.
