“Oaxaca Aerospace”, a company from Oaxaca, Mexico, presented the first modern prototype of a 100% Mexican designed airplane, developed with their own technology.
The company stated that the Pegasus PE-210A Project started on 2011 with the goal of making an aircraft with two seats, agile, fast and with low operation costs. The project concluded on 2013, when landing strip tests started.
“The idea was to make an innovative plane, completely different from the existing ones, with modern engineering, using last generation software and advanced tools”, explained the general manager of the company, Rodrigo Fernandez.
“Most of the aircrafts nowadays are designs from the last century, from the 50’s, only modifying avionics and motors, but they have not suffered a modification to make them more efficient and aerodynamics” he added.
State of Art Techonology
To create the airplane, Rodrigo and Raúl Fernández, founders of Oaxaca Aerospace, gathered a team of highly qualified engineers and used state of the art software for designing and modeling, along with simulations and the aerodynamic behavior.
According to Rodrigo, the Pegasus PE-210A is different from the actual airplanes in Mexico and the rest of the world because of its wing configuration and its cabin with two seats in tandem with controls on both places.
Oaxaca Aerospace expectations are to reach a production of at least 12 aircrafts by the year 2019.
Oaxaca Aerospace Project
For this project, the Company Oaxaca Aerospace received support from CONACYT (National Council for Science and Technology) to develop an airplane wing with an extensible section that will allow a greater lift at lower speed.
The Company is considering the Armed Forces and police corps, from Mexico and other Countries of the Americas as potential customers; as well as amateur and private pilots all over the world.
- The back seat is at a different height from the front seat, with a measure to improve the copilot’s isoptic.
- It has a vision of 300 vertical and 240 horizontal grades.
- Its motor is acrobatic.
