Thruster Aircraft Thruster
Cohen Thruster


thrust-thrust-1


The fifth design of Steve Cohen, first appearing in 1982. A unique wing design allows each wing to rack and fold inside the double surface dacron skins for trailering. A fibreglass pod keeps the pilot warm on wintery days and the strut braced high wing tail dragger design makes it a good rough strip performer. A two-place/utility version is avail-able which sports a new pod for passenger and pilot and power is supplied from a 60 hp Rotax 503 via a geared reduction drive.
