Description

WILCO Aviation are happy to have exclusively listed this immaculate Avions Pierre Robin DR400 Earl powered by the common Lycoming O-320 150hp engine known for being economical as well as reliable. G-BAGC is currently located at Rufforth East, York, England.

The Robin DR400 was released in 1972, as a development of the DR300 series. Compared to the latter, the two major differences of the DR400 are a wider cabin at shoulder level and a forward-sliding canopy, a new concept introduced with the Robin HR-1 in 1969, made to replace the doors present on earlier series. The wings have a cranked-wing configuration, allowing for stable cruising and safer stalls. The dashboard is also clearer and more elevated than on previous models, allowing easier instrument readings.

The main difference between DR400 models is the engine, as the cabin remains identical between versions. The low-powered models, which go up to 120hp, are called 2+2 to indicate they can carry 2 adults and 2 children (or three adults).

The design of the aircraft is old; it consists of a wooden canvas structure with a low, positive-dihedral wing. The low wing provides good visibility of the aircraft s surroundings. It is the same wood and fabric type as Jodel wings. The landing gear is in the non-retractable, tricycle configuration, allowing easier taxiing, takeoff and landing than conventional landing gears.

The DR400 is very present in France, operating as a training aircraft in flight schools and a rental aircraft for flight clubs. In 2019, French air clubs operated 864 DR300 and DR400 models out of the 2394 training and rental aircraft available nationwide.

Production of the DR400 ceased in 2014, as it was replaced with the Robin DR401.

Golf Charlie benefits from impressive avionics stack installed by its registered avionics engineer owner. Everything works as it should meaning she is ready to be flown away by her new owner. Recovered and repainted in 2012.
