Dubna-2 "Wasp" (-2 "Oca") by OKB Typhoon ( "")

Dubna-2 on floats, Helendzhik Airshow

The Dubna-2 is a light multirole aircraft featuring wheeled or float-type landing gear and powered by the Rotax 912UL 80hp engine. The twin-seater was test-flown in May 1996. Dubna-2 was displayed (as a mockup?) at Moscow Air Show '95 and '97; promoted in China, 1996.

Pusher propulsion scheme provides excellent view for pilot and passenger, adds to fully enclosed cabin comfort. Dubna-2 combines high-tech aviation technologies and materials with low service cost and fuel/oil (automotive) consumption.

Aircraft may be flown from very basic unpaved airstrips. Landing gear is of non-retractable tricycle type with single wheel on each unit. It features arched metal leafspring mainwheel legs (400150mm tires) and trailing-link nosewheel leg (310135mm). If necessary, Dubna-2 may be installed on skis or floats. Special ground service facilities not required for its operation.

Currently in production at the Dubna Machine-building Plant (AO DMZ). Series aircraft are used as agricultural, surveilence (forest, fishery, pipelines), trainers (dual controls are a standard option) and for tourism and leisure. Dubna-2 is also capable to fulfill certain tasks for Ministry of Defence or Internal Affairs. Several "militarized" aircraft were ordered by forest patrol, traffic police and border guards.

Low Dubna-2 price and service expenses ($80 per flight hour) attracted not only cost-cautious domestic customers. Near 50% of produced aircraft are sold abroad (Kazakhstan, Bulgaria, Greece, Ukraina). 1/3 of the aircraft - the engine.
