Force was to be supplied by a Porsche cylinder motor, however Grob later exchanged to the turbocharged Textron Lycoming Tio540 level six.

A key gimmick of the GF 200 is its pusher motor establishment. The motor, which is covered in the airframe and mounted on the airplane's inside of gravity, drives a three razor sharp edge consistent velocity propeller through a carbonfibre strengthened plastic shaft.

The task was delayed until 1989 on account of potential troubles with certificating a composite air ship. Genuine configuration exertion continued with the aid of the German Ministry for Research and Technology, bringing about the unpressurised model's first flight on November 26 1991.

Arranged GF 200 advancements incorporate the GF 250 pressurized model, the extended six seat GF 250/6, six seat turboprop fueled GF 300 and the six to eight seat twin turboprop controlled (supplying power through a solitary driveshaft) GF 350.

Grob is looking for an accomplice to help it subsidize creation.
