Solid Air

Undercarriage

Beside stable, high-standard flight characteristics a safe and comfortable chassis contributes to good soil handling and general security. The main landing gear with integrated wheel facing, also made of GRP, enables a spring travel of 15 cm, and is therefore perfectly suited for takeoffs and landings even on grass or gravel runways. The nose gear with wheel facing, produced out of composite material (carbon fiber and glass fiber) enhances the aerodynamics of the Diamant Twin. Utilizing a well designed pedal mechanism - double pedal mechanism for training purposes - the nose gear is steered and braked during ground manoeuvres.
