The CA-28 agricultural aircraft was designed around components of the wartime Wirraway. It first flew in the southern summer of 1958. Basically a single-seater, it also had a rear-facing seat behind the pilot for ferrying. There was a 40 cu.ft. hopper forward of the pilot. No hydraulic or electrical systems were fitted. The Ceres did have leading edge slats and manually operated flaps.
