Comp Air 8

Cruising comfortably at 250 mph (TAS@21,000ft), with a useful load of up to 2500 lbs, Aerocomp's new Comp Air 8 will carry 6 adults plus baggage (or a couple children) in comfort and style. Individual bucket seats are provided for six adults, with ample leg and head room, and a bench seat is provided for seating 2 children.

The 31 ft long Comp Air 8 is 2 feet longer than the popular Comp Air 7, and is designed to take full advantage of the Walter 601 turbo-prop engine's outstanding load-carrying capability. This airplane will fly great, though, equipped with any engine from 350HP to 660 HP. With 237 sq. feet of wing area, the Comp Air 8 can easily accommodate a 4800 lb. gross weight (approximately 2500 lbs. useful). For real heavy haulers, optional 5200 lb. gross weight reinforcements are available. Tapered wings for faster cruise are included as a standard feature on the Comp Air 8.

Because the Comp Air 8 is intended as a high performance, fast-flying load-carrying airplane, specially reinforced (carbon) fuselage and tail group members are included as standard features on the Comp Air 8.

The Comp Air 8 boasts a 461/2" wide cabin, sports 100% mass balanced controls for high cruise speeds, has specially reinforced oversize tail surfaces for stability and control, includes an aerodynamically efficient "raked" windshield, and has flush-mounted landing gear and flush-fit thermopane doors.

As with all Aerocomp kit-built airplanes, total fuel capacity is determined by the builder, who has the option of installing fuel tanks capable of carrying as much as 150 gallons.
