ACK-62 New Russian Twin Engine Seaplane
With Russian and now Ukrainian matters playing a big part in today’s political circus, our aviation industry appears to stay open-minded and interested in each other concepts and developments. That may well be, because things which fly connect people, countries and continents.
The newest bird out of Russia is known as the ACK-62. Currently, the plane is available for sale in the well growing Russian market and can be attained as a kit, elsewhere. No price has been disclosed by the manufacturer.
Developed by Seregin Aircraft Company, the twin engine aircraft with retractable landing gear sports two Lycoming O-360B with 180 hp each, or optionally two Optional Superior XP-360 Engines with 180 hp. The concept behind the plane is to provide a modern, comfortable aircraft with good visibility from all seats. The plane can be equipped with six seats or four in a VIP setting. Just screwing seats into an airframe doesn’t just cook the rice, the manufacturer claims to put six 200 pounders into the plane for a fishing trip.
