Muhamad, Sallehuddin and Hamid, Khairul Azura (2003) A four-seat light airplane design. In: 10th Australian International Aerospace Congress incorporating the 14th National Space Engineering Symposium 2003, 29 July â€“ 1 August 2003, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
Malaysia produces two-seat light airplane through two firms, SME Aerospace Sdn. Bhd. and Eagle Aircraft Sdn. Bhd. As these airplanes are limited to recreational, flight training and acrobatic activities, a four-seat airplane was proposed. Financed by the Ministry of Science and Technology, a research team was formed. The new airplane as designed based on the SME two-seat airplane, the MD3-60 using Professor Jan Roskam methodology. In the process, AutoCADÂ® and General Aviation Computer Aided DesignÂ® software were utilized. Preliminary results indicated that the designed four-seat airplane has better performance than the original two-seat airplane and at the same time staying very competitive in comparison to others in its class. The airplane also is very stable and possessing the Level 1 flying qualities.
