Grob GF 200 carbon fibre prototype D-EFKH

Photographed on 1 September 2010 at the Deutsches Museum, Munich.
This is one of the first aircraft to have been developed and manufactured in CFRP (Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic) technology, meeting the joint airworthiness requirements JAR part 23. It was built in 1991 to investigate modern light transport aircraft designs that reduce environmental impact in flight. In relation to existing designs in the 1990s, the aircraft’s flight performance was improved significantly; it was to have jet-handling characteristics in flight together with low direct operating costs. An intensive flight-testing program confirmed that the design demands were successfully implemented. Its innovative propulsion system which was based on a pusher-configuration met safety standards.
The first flight of the GF 200 took place on 26 November 1991.
Cruise speed: 325 km/h.
Propulsion: Lycoming 225 kW IO-540-K1B5 piston engine.
