VFW Fanliner

vfw-fanliner


Built in collaboration with Grumman-American the Fanliner two-seat light aircraft with Wankel rotary engine, first flown in 1973. Grumman American decided not to market the Fanliner in the U.S. but VFW-Fokker did borrow the Cheetah wing and horizontal tail to build their pusher.
It was re-engined in 1976 with a Dowty Rotol ducted propulsor. Based on the Fanliner's promise, the Federal German Government awarded a contract for two Fantrainer prototypes with ducted fan engines, first flown in 1977 and 1978.
