THE Beagle B.206S aircraft is a lowwing monoplane of allmetal stressed skin construction powered by two Continental Type GTSIO520C engines driving Hartzell constantspeed, fully feathering propellers.

THE B.206 had its origin in the B.206X experimental aircraft which was built in 1961 to obtain aerodynamic and structural data for the production series, and it first flew in August 1961.
SINGLE pilot operation with one or two observers, depending on the work to be done, has been adopted for all test flying. Required loadings are achieved by adjusting fuel quantity and lead ballast. The observer is positioned aft of the pilot where he can scan all the pilots' flight and engine...
A MAJOR problem associated with the production of light aircraft is the ability to feed individual customer requirements into the build stages with a minimum amount of retrospective work. Orders for a number of aircraft to the same specification enable the production line to flow smoothly with a...
General Precision Systems Ltd., of Aylesbury, have developed their Colour Visual Flight Attachment VFA to provide added realism for air crew training in flight simulators. Its main use is for instruction in take off, approach and landing under low minima weather conditions, but it can also play...
