Flightline Aviation are proud to present this very unique Sportavia RS180 Sportsman for sale.
Sportavia-Pützer produced Fournier aircraft beginning in 1966, and in 1970 Fournier initiated the design of a new four-seat cabin monoplane, the Sportsman. The first prototype Sportsman first flew on 1 March 1973, but the second prototype, which made its maiden flight on 28 April 1976, was a completely redesigned version which was created by Sportavia. This redesigned model was designated the RF-6C Sportsman when it entered production in late 1976, and was renamed RS-180 Sportsman when a new empennage design was added in early 1978.
With a 180hp Lycoming engine the RS180 is a great short field performer and touring aircraft.
The basic structure of the Sportsman is wood, with a low-wing cantilever monoplane configuration. The surface is covered with fibreglass. The cabin employs a large slide forward bubble canopy.
Even though not many of these were produced, it is a very capable, reliable aircraft with plenty of spare parts still available.
