The twin-wheel main undercarriage members featured by the production Nomad 24 are also to be standartised by the production Nomad 22, whereas the Nomad 22 prototypes (the second of which is illustrated, registration VH-SUR) have single-wheel main members.
Currently scheduled to commence flight trials in March, the Nomad 24 prototype will result from conversion of the first Nomad 22 by insertion of fuselage plugs fore and aft of the wing. The projected production Nomad 24 with elongated nose offering 40 cu ft (1,10 m3) baggage capacity and revised main undercarriage pods is illustrated.
