Robin Aircraft for Aerobatics

Stacks Image 1825

EASA and FAA certified, the CAP 10C NG is a fully aerobatic side-by-side two seater that is also capable of cross-country touring.

One of the most successfull aerobatic training aircraft in the world, numerous aerobatic champions have started aerobatics in a CAP 10.

The CAP 10 was used to equip the Equipe Voltage aerobatic display team and has been bought by French, Mexican and Australian military.

The CAP 10C was introduced with a carbon fibre reinforced wing spar to further improve the aerobatic performance.

The new generation CAP 10C from Robin Aircraft has carbon fibre cowlings and wheel fairings for reduced mass. It can be supplied with either a fixed-pitch propeller or an MT constant speed propeller for better performance. The French military placed orders for two more aircraft in late 2020.

The 200hp Lycoming fuel injected engine is fully lubricated for inverted flight.
