Robin Aircraft for Travelling

An exceptionally comfortable and economical 4-place cross-country aircraft:

The Robin Aircraft DR401/155CDI combines simplicity, comfort and safety with dramatically improved cost-effectiveness and reduced noise and vibration levels compared to aircraft with petrol engines.

The 155CDI combines the famous qualities of the Robin DR401 airframe with a highly efficient, economical, quiet and reliable engine. Sixteen times more reliable than Avgas engines1, Continental diesel engines use Jet A-1, automotive diesel and most military jet fuels all in any mixture, guaranteeing worldwide availability of fuel.

Electronically managed, fuel injected and liquid cooled, the thoroughly modern Continental aero-engines are free of the dangers of carburettor icing and vapour lock, and safe from thermal shock on low power settings. Turbocharging maintains power delivery at altitude and the automatic variable pitch three-bladed propellor ensures optimum performance both in climb and cruise. Further enhancing safety, a separate radiator for cabin heating eliminates the risk of carbon monoxide toxicity.

With 15% more power and 21% more torque for the same empty weight than the 135CDI,
the Robin Aircraft 2·0S 155 hp can reach an impressive 460 kg of load; putting some larger aircraft to shame. The improved climb rate and cruise performance still comes with economy—24 litres per hour of Jet A-1 at 75% cruise power.

100 hour / 12 month (whichever is the sooner) checks mean more time in the air, less on the ground: clearly attractive to serious tourers. Add in the option of a tow hook and a rear view mirror to the quiet operation, no shock cooling, and long maintenance intervals and it is easy to see why the 155CDI also has become a favourite of gliding clubs.

Fuel capacity is 109 litres with an option of a 50 litre supplementary tank and an external luggage compartment door is standard.

A comprehensively equipped full adult four seater for touring:

The Robin Aircraft DR401/160A is a 4-seat certified cross-country aircraft offering a great combination of high performance, comfort and operating economy.

It has superior cruising speeds and range compared to most of its competitors and its fixed gear and fixed-pitch propellor makes it easy to handle. It has three fuel tanks (one 109 litre main tank and paired 40 litre wing-root tanks) giving 189 litre of total capacity. An external luggage door is part of the standard equipment and a 50 litre supplementary tank is an option.
A high performance adult four seater for cross-country flying:

With an 1,100 kg MTOW, up to 490 kg of useful load, and 180 hp, the Robin Aircraft DR401/180 combines high performance and comfort with easy 4-seat cross-country capability.

It has superior cruising speeds and range compared to most of its competitors and its fixed gear and fixed-pitch propellor makes it easy to handle. Three fuel tanks with 189 litre total capacity (one 109 litre main tank and two 40 litre wing-root tanks) and an external luggage compartment door is part of the standard equipment. A 50 litre supplementary tank is an option.

The aircraft can be ordered with a constant speed propellor as the DR401/180ACS.
The most powerful DR401 in the range:

At the top of the petrol range, the Robin Aircraft DR401 200AI offers an impressive combination of power and comfort for those who want a fuel-injected petrol engine and the best climb rate in the range. The long-range version has a fuel capacity of 189 litres (a 109 litre main tank and two 40 litre wing-root tanks) expandable to 249 litres with the addition of the optional 50 litres supplementary tank.

The 'Country' version has no wing tanks, so 109 litres as standard, a high lift / low drag wing profile and a two-blade CS propeller. A 50 litre supplementary tank is optional.

Both versions have an external luggage compartment door as standard.
