Dyn Aircraft Twin-R
Dyn Aircraft's new Twin-R at AERO 2010.

THE LOOP team is at AERO 2010, Europe's biggest General Aviation show, and already we've seen a brand new twin engine aircraft from French manufacturer, Dyn Aero. It is called the Twin-R and just a few details have so far been released.

This is what we know - more later: It is a twin-engine four-seater, based on the airframe of the single-engine MCR-4S, with two Rotax 912ULS 100hp engines. Compared to the 4S, the wing span has been extended at the tips. The vertical tail unit has been made higher and the horizontal stabilator has greater span to increase the effectiveness of the rudder and pitch control for asymmetric operations. To additionally improve asymmetric handling, the rudder will be hinged in two parts to improve its efficiency while the ailerons have been increased by 20% in span.

The two-blade propellers are constant-speed, electrically controlled. The cockpit is all new, but will be common with the future MCR-4S that is due to be certificated under EASA's new ELA1 category. The weight is 850kg (1870lb) MTOW in standard operations, 450kg empty.

Initially conceived to offer a plans only aircraft by Pierre Robin, the Twin-R project has now been developed for kit production thanks to the new French regulation allowing for multi-engine kit aircraft since last January. This development has been carried out by Dyn'Aircraft, a company founded by Christophe Robin.

The Twin-R will be initially offered as a kit aircraft, and following on a certificated ELA1 is envisioned by Dyn'Aircraft.
