I have flown this kind of aircraft in Bobocu Military School-Buzau, in the first year (propeller engine, first step of trainig for military pilots) and it was a wonderful airplane what develope basic skills for pilots before to start in the second year on jet-engine. You could learn basic navigation very easy on this tipe of plane.

I have made two flight in this aircraft. The one I flew was configured s a primary military trainer, fully aerobatic with only two individuals, dual controls both flight and power. Aircraft can carry four individuals in standard catagory. Lots of fun to fly.
Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
