This thread is not only about the Lascurain Aura, i like it because it represented a very nice try to make a really powerful aircraft industry, Latin America in general has made machines that if the projects would have been followed properly today we would be certainly much more advanced for exampleHi Pegasus,
we discussed it here;
Hi, this is a forgotten Mexican aircraft of 1957,called Lascurain Aura,it was twin engined low-wing light transport aircraft. http://vintageaeroplanewriter.blogspot.com/2010/11/forgotten-aircraft-1957-lascurain-aura.htmlwww.secretprojects.co.uk
Please Moderator,merge those topics.
I will look for it, read this https://tesis.ipn.mx/bitstream/handle/123456789/12428/1877 2013.pdf?sequence=1&isAllowed=y it is a very technical work by the IPN it basically says there was another derivative, sadly another failed program, it was the Chac it has a very short introduction in English but it is worth to read it.Hi Pegasus !
Thank you for your beautiful work on the various Latin America designs!
Would you know where I could find some (technical data such as dimensions) on the Bárcenas B-01 ag-plane? . I know it first flew in June 1973 but I have seen production totals seen reported as 11, 12 and even 50.
you are welcomed Walter, if I am honest two of the links are new for me, specially thisHi pegasus !
Thank you very much for the detailed info on the Barcenas B-01. You made me very happy.
I hope you enjoy this video it is about the same Sport twin engine aircraft you can see a gallery of pictures of its manufactureHi pegasus!
Again wonderful info on the Lascurain twins.
I am very selfish and I hope that for future posts you also have the TT-5 twin (smaller Beech 18/C-45 lookalike) on your list.
well Lascurain was an aircraft designer to the level of most of his peers from 1910 to 1957, but sadly those were his last projectsAmazing work Pegasus,
and can I ask you that,the Lascurain designed Aura,Celia and XB-1,was there any more unknown aircraft or Projects to
this company ?.
those are photos from a museum, it is a western aircraft, I have no time but i will check laterIn the photo of the AMT 100, it is standing below a large metal airplane with a saddle tank in the wing leading edge. Does any one have an idea what aircraft that might be?
Vickers V789D (VC-90) Viscount, used as presidential aircraft from 1958 to 1987.In the photo of the AMT 100, it is standing below a large metal airplane with a saddle tank in the wing leading edge. Does any one have an idea what aircraft that might be?
I am trying to start conversations, any way there are not many projects, Mexico has less than 20 aircraft, Argentina no more than 35 or 45 projects and Brazil maybe 40-50 projects we have very few projects , for example after 1945 in Mexico we have no more than 8 projects including the Pegasus P-400T, Argentina has also very few projects after 1970, most aircraft were built in few numbers for example the AAMSA Quail a license of the Callair A-9 Aero commander, this in fact is probably the aircraft that has the highest numbers built in Mexico 100+.Hi Pegasus,
please focus on Projects or little known prototypes only in this section,and thanks.
It is an american project, true i never said it was originally Mexican, but in the History of Mexico's it is the aircraft that has been built in larger numbers than most TNCA projects, it was licensed by AAMSA which was a Mexican company and built in Pasteje Mexico state, why it is important in Mexico attempt to build an aerospace industry? well Mexico in the 1920s had designs which were on par with western aircraft to the level that if we would had continued a correct policy today we would be as capable as France or Brazil.I appreciate and support the desire to show off Latin American projects. But let's be fair about what is a Latin American project or not. This one very barely deserve that name:
It is Call Aircraft Company's CallAir, purchased by IMCO Intermountain Manufacturing Company which evolved it into the CallAir A-9.
IMCO was bought by Rockwell, which called it Quail Commander and in 1971 offshored production to Mexico, under a local joint venture there named AAMSA.
No offense, but in my book this is a 100% US aircraft, with manufacturing offshored to Mexico, and near-zero "Latin-American-ness". Offshored or licensed productions do not count as a local projects.
The cause of Latin American projects will be served better without claiming un-deserved credit for Gringo projects (or anyone else's)
Cicare has 2 missing numbers CH-10 and CH-13, the CH-15 should be a new model after CH-14, while Cicares website says CH-14 is in development as well CH-11, the only real products are CH-7 and to a lesser extend CH-12 and CH-8 all others were experimental or with very low production, the CH-8 and CH-12 are twin seat aircraftHi,
there is two mystery helicopter,the Cicare CH-13 & CH-15 ?.
it is hard to know the official page has after the CH-9, the CH6T as the following model developed implying up to a certain degree the CH-10 is the old CH-6T prototype with the Labala jet engine.Thank you Pegasus,
but the Cicare CH-10 was a little known helicopter;
Helicopter Cicare CH-11. Specifications. A photo. Cicare CH-11 - Argentinean single ultra-light helicopter, developed in 1998 by the aircraft manufacturer Cicare Helicopteros SA. Cicare CH-11 photoavia-pro.net
Design model Cicare CH-11 ultra-light aircraft began in the middle of the Argentine aircraft manufacturers 90-ies of the last century. As a fundamental principle, aviarazrabotchiki used a little-known model helicopter Cicare CH-10, which appeared in 1993 year, however, its design has been comprehensively improved and technical part has undergone important changes, which is why the aircraft gained great opportunities, and its flight performance in largely improved.
