The Aviation Industries of Iran AVA-202 is an Iranian two-seat, light aircraft designed as a trainer and sporting aircraft. It was intended for the Iranian domestic market to avoid dependence on imports.[2]

Design and development

The AVA-202 was based on the Van's Aircraft RV-6A and was designed to comply with European JAR-22 and JAR-VLA aircraft certification rules. It features a cantilever low-wing, a two-seats-in-side-by-side configuration enclosed cockpit under a bubble canopy, fixed tricycle landing gear and a single engine in tractor configuration.[2]

The aircraft is made from aluminum sheet. Its 8.74 m (28.7 ft) span wing employs a NACA 63-215 airfoil at the wing root and a NACA 63-015 airfoil at the wing tip. The wingspan is greater than the RV-6's wingspan of 7.01 m (23.0 ft) from which it is derived. The AVA-202's wing has an area of 10.87 m2 (117.0 sq ft) and is equipped with flaps. The standard engine fitted is the 160 hp (119 kW) Lycoming AEIO-320-B2B four-stroke aerobatic powerplant.[2][3]
