Rogožarski SIM XI
The Rogožarski management observed that the SIM-X characteristics were very close to an acrobatic plane. It was decided to make some modifications to make an acrobatic plane. Sima Milutinovic designed reinforcements, reducing the wing area, and more powerful engines during 1937.
The Rogozarski SIM-XI (Serbian: Рогожарски СИМ-XI) was a single engined, one crew, high wing monoplane, designed and built at the Rogožarski factory in Belgrade.
The test flying was conducted by factory test pilot Captain Milan Bjelanovic by the end of January 1938. Factory tests were carried out until 12 March, then tests the experiment group of the Yugoslav Royal Air Force.The plane got excellent grades and and the YAF bought the prototype SIM-XI. This was the first Yugoslav aerobatic aircraft.
