OMA SUD presents:
the latest state of the art, innovative, piston twin: SKYCAR.
SKYCAR has been designed to be the actual sole multiutility/multipurpose aircraft in the General Aviation High Performance Piston marketplace with a opening bonnet on fly.
The internal layout is flexible and can be changed in various configurations and for different uses such as aero taxi, light cargo, and for special military and civil missions.
Its latest generation 3D Synthetic Vision Digital Glass Cockpit makes flying easier and safer.
The synergetic architecture makes possible:
an unequalled cabin volume that provides a top class passenger comfort and the largest baggage compartment in the same class aircraft.
Two tail boom and two engines mounted on the wing in pushed configuration less fuel and less D.O.C.
OMA SUD Engineering Team designed SKYCAR with the following key points in minds:
– High Aerodynamic efficiency;
– Top Class Passenger Comfort: more space, low internal noise;
– Flexibility to meet various mission profiles
– Last generation Avionic concepts of Glass Cockpit based on a safer and easier flying.
Experience the exhilaration of flight: fly the difference, fly the innovation, FLY SKYCAR!

SKYCAR is designed to be easily disassembled…
SKYCAR is designed for a single pilot IFR operations.
The cockpit design philosophy is to keep it simple, but use state-of-the-art technology. It’s completely “glass cockpit” drives for:Enhancing situational awareness;
Improving system monitoring and control;The design is based on an integrated digital avionics suite, which concentrates most of avionic functions, and uses of a large-scale colour displays. In addition, dual sensor configuration increases A/C reliability.
The suite completely integrates flight instruments, autopilot, communication, navigation, optional weather radar and lightning warning systems, interfaces to engine indication and crew alerting, and to other aircraft systems, providing a highly reliable system designed for ease of operation and reduced cockpit workload.

|Skycar aircraft is powered by two Lycoming engines IO-360 C1E6.
It is a reliable aircraft engine that powers almost the 80% of the General Aviation Aircraft around the world.
SKYCAR is powered by two Lycoming engines IO-360-C1E6 installed in pusher configuration. Engines are fuel injected and supply 200 Hp ea @ 2700 RPM. Lycoming is a reliable aircraft engine that powers almost the 80% of the General Aviation Aircraft around the world.
2-Blade Constant Speed Hydraulically Controller with Feathering Propeller, Hartzell.
Engine cowling has been designed through the aid of CFD methods to reduce cooling drag and to improve engine cooling both on ground and in flight.
|The retractable landing gear employ three electrical actuators with a backup mechanical emergency extension system to provide both normal and emergency operations. Emergency operation consists in pulling the red lever for 14 times.|
|Flight control systemsThe Skycar Aircraft is designed with superb pilot handling in mind. Emphasis is placed on ease of control, flight safety and system redundancy.|
|The primary flight controls are of conventional type operated by dual control wheels and dual rudder pedals; they are constituted by push-pull rod:
– Stabilator all movable
– Twin rudder
– Steering, with automatic in-flight disengagement;
|• Increased safety and reliability
• Low backlash
• Improved control feeling
• Easy maintenance operations
• Low maintenance costs
• Dual redundant, dual rudder control
|Secondary flight controls are electrically actuated:- Flap;
– Rudder Trim;
– Pitch trim/tab;
|Features• State of the art technology;
• Reduced pilot workload;
• Easy operations;
• Electrical indicators for secondary surfaces position;
• Redundant control system for the pitch trim/tab; .
Anti Ice system
The A/C is not certified for flying in known icing conditions.
A propeller electrical de-ice is provided as standard equipment, while a wing de-ice system is provided as optional equipment.
Two tanks are provided in each wing (250 litres each).
The fuel system is designed taking into account:
– Safety – Reliability
– Easy Operations
– Reduced pilot workload
• Tank design prevents the interruption of fuel supply also in long non steady manoeuvres;
• Low shut-off time;
• Fast fuel supply when shifting to X-Fed;
• Reliable resistive fuel indicator;
• Lighted overhead fuel control panel.
The available fuel type is AvGas 100 or 100LL grade.
