TRANSAVIA PL-12 AIRTRUK
Title: Transavia PL-12 Airtruk
The Transavia Airtruk was designed and produced in Australia as an agricultural aircraft and uses a unique sequiplane configuration with two unconnected tail booms, a trademark of the designer Luigi Pellarini. It is a smaller version of the Bennett Airtruck, also designed by Pellarini and the first aircraft to be commercially produced and certificated in New Zealand.
The Airtruk first flew in 1965 and was certificated in 1966. Several variants with different engines were produced, and between 1966 and 1993 around 118 were built. This includes about 12 assembled in New Zealand from kits under a separate type certificate.
This title contains the Flight Manuals for an early and a late model of the Transavia Airtruk plus two manufacturer’s publicity brochures. The files have been scanned from the original manuals and retain any colour pages.
