Robin Aircraft RA

The Robin Aircraft DR401 180RA, RACS and DR401 200RAi are very popular certified glider-towing aircraft operated on hundreds of European glider fields.

All are equipped with four seats, offering the comfort and performance of a touring aircraft for mixed-duty operations.

The Robin Aircraft DR400 180R is now able to run on Mogas as well as Avgas.

The Robin Aircraft 180 Lite offers a reduced airframe mass (around 520 kg empty weight) allowing heavier gliders to be towed.

The Robin Aircraft DR400 200R has the 200hp Lycoming fuel-injected engine and constant speed propeller.

The Robin Aircraft 180RD is powered by the 180hp Lycoming carburettor engine, again with a constant speed propeller.

New to the range is the Robin Aircraft 155CDI-R equipped with a diesel Continental 2·0S 155hp engine, a three-bladed constant speed propeller, single power lever control and, above all liquid cooling that prevents thermal shock on power-off descents: a huge advantage for glider tugs. Click here for the press release and here for a comparison between the 180RA and the 155CDI-R.
