Aeropro aircraft since 1990

Aero­pro, the man­u­fac­tur­er of the Euro­FOX, was formed in the late 80’s fol­low­ing the “peace­ful” rev­o­lu­tion and the divi­sion of Czech and Slo­va­kia. With no more influ­ence from the Sovi­et Union, 4 uni­ver­si­ty grad­u­ates were able to turn their pas­sion for aero mod­el­ing into full size air­craft design and pro­duc­tion. This same lean man­age­ment struc­ture exists today, with suc­ces­sion plan­ning in place as the next gen­er­a­tion start to enter the busi­ness.

Eurofox

The Euro­fox are fac­to­ry-built two-seat air­craft man­u­fac­tured by Aero­pro in Slo­va­kia. Aero­pro has been pro­duc­ing air­craft since 1990 with now over 600 air­craft now fly­ing around the world. The Euro­fox has mod­ern designs with excel­lent per­for­mance and fea­tures — built with the finest work­man­ship and mate­ri­als result­ing in a com­plet­ed air­craft of the high­est qual­i­ty. The Euro­FOX is a real air­craft in every respect. It is joy to fly and own, extreme­ly com­fort­able with respon­sive, coor­di­nat­ed con­trols which immerse the pilot in the plea­sure of flight. With class lead­ing vis­i­bil­i­ty, the Euro pro­vides true agili­ty and tremen­dous sat­is­fac­tion for the pilot and pas­sen­ger.

Why Eurofox?

The air­craft is a high wing STOL air­craft with class lead­ing han­dling, spec­i­fi­ca­tion, pay­load and per­for­mance that can­not be matched by its direct com­peti­tors. Hav­ing the widest under­car­riage in class, con­struct­ed in robust GRP, the air­craft is proven over decades with almost half a mil­lion land­ings. The Euro­FOX is a real fun and engag­ing air­craft capa­ble of oper­at­ing from the short­est and rough­est strips, whilst effi­cient­ly cruis­ing at 100 knots.

Fuselage

 

The fuse­lage is designed to pro­vide max­i­mum strength, pilot and pas­sen­ger com­fort, and ease of con­struc­tion. The canopy frame, engine attach points is enveloped in a high-strength, 4130 Chro­moly cage — the same steel used to man­u­fac­ture rifle bar­rels — pro­vid­ing an addi­tion­al lay­er of secu­ri­ty and safe­ty.

Wing

 

Wing of rec­tan­gu­lar plat­form with its own aero­foil sec­tion is of frame struc­ture with two spar tubes and the sys­tem of diag­o­nal struts and sys­tem of ribs. Al-alloy tubes of 63 mm die­mater are rein­forced in the hinges regions by tubes of cor­re­spond­ing diam­e­ter. A sys­tem of ribs con­sists of 14 ribs and of 13 aux. ribs sup­port­ing the fab­ric skin in the front wing area. In the hor­i­zon­tal plane the wing is braced by a sys­tem of diag­o­nal steel spar tube. The 2×25,5 l fuel tanks are housed in the wing root part. Tanks are weld­ed from Al-alloy sheet. The lead­ing edge shape is guar­an­teed by a fiber­glass part bond­ed in front of the spar tube. The trail­ing edge is fit­ted with an Al-alloy shaped bat­ten. The wing is cov­ered by syn­thet­ic fab­ric POLY FIBER, with applied stretch­ing lac­quer and sprayed by a first-rate exte­ri­or enam­el. flap­er­ons (Junkers flap) are attached through five hinges to the ribs under the wing trail­ing edge. The flap­per­on struc­ture con­sists of Al-alloy tube and lam­i­nate sand­wich (foam, epoxy resin, glass) formed in a neg­a­tive mould. Both wings are attached to the fuse­lage in the upper part through the main tube hinges and in the bot­toom part by the hinges of the “V” ‑shaped wing struts. The sys­tem of com­mon rear wing hinge and tilt truss axes allows the wing to tilt along the fuse­lage rear part. This saves a lot of stor­age place and allows the road trans­port.

 

The Euro­FOX “wing­fold” is just that, wing fold…… one per­son can open or fold the wings, sin­gle hand­ed­ly in less than 5 min­utes, no tricks, no heavy lift­ing or any extra hands need­ed. The Euro­FOX wing­fold was designed from the out­set and an inte­gral part of the air­craft, not an after­thought as so many oth­er “wing­fold” claims are.

Undercarriage

 

Euro­fox 2K tail­drag­ger fea­tures a com­pos­ite main land­ing gear and has wide-spaced main wheels to aid with cross-wind land­ings and take­offs, as well as result­ing in supe­ri­or ground han­dling. As tail­drag­gers go, the for­ward vis­i­bil­i­ty is very good and with the Euro­fox 2K hav­ing clear poly­car­bon­ate doors the vis­i­bil­i­ty out the side of the air­craft is excep­tion­al.

 

Euro­FOX 3K a fixed tri­cy­cle under­car­riage with a con­trol­lable nose wheel.This wheel is equipped by the tire with dimen­sion 4.00–4 with tube. Main under­car­riage car­ry low-presure tires with the dimen­sions 15×6.00–6 with tube (or 14×4 /4.00–6/) and are equipped by the hydraulic disk brakes oper­at­ed from the left and right seat. A park­ing brake is option­al.
