The PA-25 Puelche was originally designed and manufactured by Piper Aircraft as a rugged, easy to maintain agricultural aircraft. The aircraft is a single engine low-wing monoplane constructed of steel tubing. FAdeA produces, under license, and markets the PA -25-235 and PA-25-260 models.
The main aims of the program are to update current fleet and encourage replacement of non-specific aircraft.
-Braced low-wing monoplane. Streamlined V bracig struts on each side of fuselage, with additional short support struts. Alloy wing section truss ribs.
– The wings have trailing edge flaps and ailerons of light alloy construction.
-Composite wing tip to reduce drag.
– The landing gear is a non- retractable tail wheel type for easier and safer flight.
-The fuel system is composed of a 53 gallon non corrosive fiberglass reinforced plastic fuel tank. The system allows more than 200 liters load and a three and a half hours flight.
-Fiberglass reinforced plastic tank for 800 liters (dry material) and 550 liters (liquids)
-Agricultural spraying system: driven spray pump, three way valve, stainless steel booms fitted with 44 spraying system diaphragm nozzles type. Micronair type rotative sprayers can be fitted/provided.
-PA-25-235 is powered by a Lycoming 0-540 engine rated at 235 SHP at 2700 RPM. McCauley two blades fixed pitch propeller.
