Description

Wilco Aviation are pleased to have exclusively listed this beautiful Avions Pierre Robin DR400 Regent powered by the well known Lycoming O-360 180hp engine giving great performance and cruise speed. G-ORRG is located with us at our home airfield of Henstridge in the South West of England hangared as she always has been.

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 other models are all four-seaters, as the 180hp engine can carry 4 passengers, a full fuel tank, and luggage.

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.

Romeo Golf had the engine overhauled zero timed in 2014 and its magnetos overhauled in 2022 meaning she is in calendar time with plenty of hours remaining before TBO.

Currently located with us in the South West of England at Henstridge Airfield (EGHS).
