Fournier RF-6B 100 by Avia71
The Fournier RF-6B is a two seater plane, all wooden construction, intended for flight schools. The purpose of René Fournier was to build an alternative to the Cessna 150 for aero clubs. But Renée wanted a lot more: Encouraged by a bunch of instructors, he designed what they often call "the best trainer ever" and, at the same time, a really pleasant airplane with aerobatics abilities.
A true versatile aircraft just for students ? No, this bird is a candy for experienced pilots too. Loops, spins, lazy eights, rolls ... let's spice your ride !
First flew on 12 March 1974. Certified for both Category A (aerobatics) and Category U (utility). Only fifty RF-6B were produced... during the oil crisis. Bad timing.
In 1981, René Fournier sold the development rights of the RF-6B to Slingsby, a british manufacturer in good financial health. The T-67 is born as the daughter of the RF-6B, a commercial success.
As an enthusiast pilot flying on this machine, JNelson suggested Avia71 to design an accurate model for X-Plane. We didn't need a lot of investigations to take up the challenge. We strongly want to thank JNelson for his help. Thanks for documentation, pictures, advice and of course thanks for being a great beta tester. This model is an accurate X-Plane version of the IRL bird.
