MCR 4S - Photo #1

The objective was to develop, what most thought impossible at that time:

A four seat airplane with STOL performance, equipped with a light 100 HP engine

The 4-S maiden flight was in June 2000.

The MCR 4-S is the only airplane in the aviation world to provide pilots with such an amazing Performance/Economy ratio. Its concept makes it to be the perfect travel aircraft, able to fly comfortably with four people onboard, cruising at more than 250 km/h, and burning only 20 L/h with a 100 hp engine. Those performances can only be reached because of the MCR 4-S very light empty weight . The aircraft can carry up to 150% of its own empty weight!

The research of a very elaborated aerodynamic design, with wing-tips optimized in wind-tunnel, and high efficiency double slotted flaps, provide the MCR 4-S with amazing STOL performances Designed around a roomy cockpit ; 1,20m width at the rear seats, build to allow four people up to 1,95m tall to be easily seated in the airplane.

The aircraft is equipped with a very strong oil-pneumatic undercarriage, allowing landings on any type of runways.

The MCR-4S can be equipped with a choice of different power plants, but may also be fitted with other options such as :

* Ballistic Recovery System parachute(actually in development)

* Extended range fuel tanks

* Toe operated Hydraulic brakes

The MCR-4S is available in kit form in respect with the CNSK regulation (specific kit airworthiness certificate) or in the experimental category ,depending on the registration country.
