:D - So you have been involved in the Aerosoft Beaver - Thats a nice aircraft thats stands in my hangar.
This explains a bit how you guys can come up with a aircraft with so extreme quality at a first own release.

If I should read "familar wit the safir" litterally should it be something in the Bücker family as the Jungman as it can be seen as an ancestor to the safir.

But this time i think i oput my bet on the Boeing Stearman.

I'm putting all the little pieces of information together and I belive the next project has a wingspan of 18.18 meters and is powered by a nine-cylinder radial engine, propably a ASh-62R.
The type has served in the Ethiopian Air Force together with the SAAB Safir.
The designers name is Oleg Konstantinovich Antonov

Am I getting close ? :wink:

Best regards,

Håkan Olsson

I would prefer the AN-2. It is a cool airplane.

Hmm, similar to a Safir..? Warbird, but not WWII? Not single seat.
Hmm, designed in the Thirties then? Communincations and general purpose transport? Not a biplane?

To be similar to the Safir it would have to have retractable gear. That narrows things a bit. My guess is outward retracting gear. Tailwheel, or possibly a noseweel depending on which model and country of manufacture?

Am I getting warm..?

My AN-2 Suggestion isn't really serious :D

It could be something from the Bücker family just like Voyager suggested.
The Bücker Jungman, Jungmeister and Bestmann were all designed by A.J. Andersson who designed the Safir.
None of them has a retractable gear though, but they are all designed in the thirties.

Best regards,

Remember he also said "pretty popular all around the word" I am starting to think it might be a Navion.

Piaggio's P149 would also fit the description... I think someone's done a freeware one recently.

It feels when reading all these posts that we are talking about a military trainer, that would be a "warbird", two seater etc
