Eurowing Goldwing II
Side-by-side two-seat single-engined mid-wing monoplane with conventional three-axis con-trol. Wing has swept back leading and trailing edges, and tapering chord; no tail, canard wing. Pitch control by elevator on canard; yaw control by tip rudders; roll control by two thirds-span ailerons; control inputs through stick for pitch/roll and pedals for yaw. Wing braced from below by struts; main-wing profile as Goldwing; but further modified; canard profile GU25; both double-surface. Undercarriage has three wheels in tricycle formation; glass-ribre suspension on all wheels. Push-right go-right nosewheel steering connected to yaw control. Brakes on main wheels. Aluminium-tube/glass-ribre fuselage, totally enclosed. Engine mounted below wing driving pusher propeller.
The Goldwing II is Eurowing's contender in the two-seat three-axis market. In 1983 the Goldwing II was about to commence its test flight programme in the hands of its designer, Craig Catto. Craig originally produced the design for the US firm Goldwing Ltd, who exhibited a prototype at the 1982 Oshkosh, but since then Eurowing has taken over development of the machine, the legal position regarding two -seaters being much more favourable in Britain than in the US.
