The Gippsland GA-200 Fatman is an all new ag airplane certificated to US FAR Part 23 gauges.
The GA-200 is Gippsland Aeronautics' first indigenous plan, and results from more than two many years of involvement in changing other flying machine. Specifically Gippsland Aeronautics has broad involvement in altering the Piper Pawnee, however in spite of the visual comparability the GA-200 is an all new plan.

It is of routine development with a low mounted supported wing. The single opened folds might be stretched out for tighter turns amid spreading operations.
Australian CAA confirmation in ordinary and rural classifications to US airworthiness benchmarks was granted on March 1 1991. US FAA certificate to FAR Pt 23 was honored in October 1997.
The GA-200 is offered in standard farming air ship and Agtrainer structure. The Agtrainer is an ag pilot coach fitted with a more modest substance container and double controls.
The GA-200 has won various fare requests, including a few to China. Other air ship have been constructed for clients in New Zealand and the USA. Air ship sold in the US have their airframe segments dispatched from Australia with parts, for example, the motor and flight fitted generally.
Gippsland Aeronautics contemplated an improvement of the GA-200 fueled by an Australian created magnesium square V8 motor that would have run on unleaded mogas (the GA-200 as of now has Australian endorsement to work utilizing premium evaluation unleaded mogas for its O-540). However the organization rather focussed its exertions on an all the more influential GA-200 controlled by an uprated O-540 and an expanded max takeoff weight.
