SO YA WANT TA BE A BUSH PILOT, EH?

1-Series, Model 05, Block 1, Variant A - Aiplane, Utility, for Rough Or Remote Areas (AURORA)

= TWIN CROWN AEROSPACE INDUSTRIES =

155m/s @ 1700m = 1400km

Water takeoff requires level pitch (i.e., hands off) until 33m/s, at which point takeoff is possible.

AG2: Lift augmentation (do not attempt to use for water takeoff) / Ground landing flaps
AG3: Water landing flaps

Built for Kerbal Express Airlines - Regional Jet Challenge.

The aircraft seats up to 24 passengers. It carries its own embarkation ramp.

The A-105 AURORA (Aiplane, Utility, for Rough Or Remote Areas) is yet another design from Twin Crown Aerospace Military Application Division, feeling that small utility craft such as these are well within their jurisdiction to design. (They’re also quite fond of acronyms/backronyms.) It is a rugged amphibious aircraft, with every design element considered for survival in whatever bush this plane is sent to.

The engine control systems have been upgraded by TCA-MAD to produce increased, uprated power to improve water takeoff capability. (TCA is not responsible for reduced engine life due to constant operation at full throttle.)

Pontoons allow for water landings and takeoffs, though the takeoff acceleration is fairly slow. They can be jettisoned with AG8.

The high mounted wing and engines help the important flight components clear brush around runways or keep them above water.

Tail dragger landing gear allow for rugged main landing gear, and the simplicity of a tailwheel reduces critical component failures grounding an aircraft.

Mid-mounted embarkation ramp allows egress clear of the propellers, as well as separating the rear cabin, allowing the rear cabin to be configured more luxuriously or as storage area separate from the rest of the craft. As well, along with the T-tail, the mid-mounted ramp allows usage for skydiving (for those so inclined).

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.3.1.
