Tandem Aircraft Sunny

Sunny Sport


The Sunny is a tube and fabric design whose pitch and roll control is achived by ailerons fitted on the rear wing.


A side by side trainer designed by Dieter Schulz, production of the Sunny Sport UL-biplane was started by Tandem Aircraft KG in 1989. In the first year 25 Sunnies were sold, however the sale figures of the Sunny went down over the years. Finally in 1999 Tandem Aircraft KG became bankrupt.

The undoing of Tandem Aircraft KG was not the end of the Sunny. Alexander Dewald bought the rights. Both the tandem-seat Sunny Sport and the side-by-side versions were produced in the factory of Dewald Leichtflugzeugbau at Schönborn-Mingolsheim near Speyer in Germany. Both versions feature a number of small, but significant, design changes.
