FFT Eurotrainer 2000A

06/30/2009. On April 25, 1988, Swissair ordered from FFA Flugzeugwerke at Altenrhein, Switserland, eight examples (plus four options) of the projected all-composite two/four-seat training and touring aircraft FFA-2000 Eurotrainer, based on the well-known FFA AS-202 Bravo. Shortly thereafter the project was taken over by FFT (Gesellschaft für Flugzeug- und Faserverbund-Technologie mbH, company for aircraft and glass reinforced plastics technology) of Mengen, West-Germany.

Re-designated Eurotrainer 2000A, and powered by a 268 hp Textron Lycoming AEIO-540-L1B5 flat-six engine, the prototype is seen pictured on its first flight. FFT ceased trading on December 21, 1992 and the eight aircraft for Swissair were never produced.
