SH72433 SIAI-Marchetti SF-260EA/D/EU ‘Late Bulged Canopy Type’ - clear part test shot

 The SF-260EA/D/EU version is a development of the basic SIAI-Marchetti SF-260 airframe which mainly differs by having a larger, taller clear canopy. This change was introduced in order to allow the cockpit to accommodate a new generation of pilots, who as well as the population in general are taller than their predecessors. The aircraft manufacturers know it, we know it too, so we simply had no other option than to follow suit and design and produce the taller canopy as well. The new, larger clear canopy part can be seen in the images below, again taken by our Ondra Hajek. The last two images compare the new canopy with the older, smaller one.


  1. Why not an open canopy? Is it more difficult to realize?
