Innovative aircraft built in composite material for military pilot training in their early stages and military and civil operative tasks

State-of-the-art ab-initio/primary military and civil trainer aircraft, in development in FAdeA

With a two-seater side-by-side configuration, the IA-100 has the possibility of adding a third seat in a rear position. Powered by a single piston engine, this aircraft will be built entirely in composite material, and designed for elementary-primary military and civilian pilot training as well as for civil or military operative tasks. It will also have aerobatic capabilities and FAR-23 certification.

All composite single piston trainer, designed for ab initio-primary military pilots training, the IA-100 represents FAdeA´s composite technology entry in the general aviation and military training market. Its outstanding aerodynamics, excellent flight qualities, aordable state of the art systems, robust airframe and FAR 23 aerobatic category certification conjugate a set of optimum characteristics for a cost effective pilot formation with a highest teaching effectiveness.

Remarkably, the IA-100 features configuration, wing and power loading suitable for all training duties, including aerobatics and formation flying, a reliable Lycoming AEIO-540-D4A5 (260 HP), new generation Hartzell propeller, an aordable cockpit design with air conditioning, customized VFR/IFR digital avionics for modern ab-initio and primary pilots training and side by side + 3rd rear seat configuration to increase operational capabilities.

Additionally, the IA-100 offers customized flexible solutions, in avionics suite, for any of its variants.
