Eagle Aircraft DW-1 Eagle

 

eagledw-1


Deliveries of Eagle Aircraft's new ag-plane, manufactured by Bellanca, were planned to begin in October 1979. Designed from advanced glider technology, which enhances fuel efficiency, the Eagle was certificated with 220- and 240-hp Continentals and 275- and 350-hp Jacobs (all radials); certification was pending with the 300-hp Lycoming opposed powerplant.


An agreement with Bellanca Aircraft Corporation of June 1979 was for Bellanca to manufacture Eagle on its behalf. Eagle production lasted until the early 1980s.
