Post WW2: Giles 202

The AkroTech Giles G-202 is a serious aerobatic aircraft, flown by top competition pilots worldwide. This variant is based on the single seat G200 that was first produced in 1992.

 

Built of advanced carbon fibre materials, the fuselage contains no welded steel components at all, and this makes the aircraft relatively light. Even with a simple four cylinder Lycoming IO-360 engine, the top speed is 253 miles per hour, with a cruise of around 200.

GilesOne pilot has described the G202 as "reckless abandon capable: It's a plane that doesn't limit the pilot in anyway."

Lloyd Beaule, a former Canadian National Aerobatic Champion said of the Giles: "I had to look under the cowl and make sure there are were four cylinders under there! The performance of the airplane is absolutely amazing. The controls are so well harmonized, it leaves you speechless. This is a wonderful aerobatic airplane.
