Employed as a test-flight engineer at Sud, Rene Barbara has designed the RB 50 high-wing aircraft which in weight and accommodation falls between the two types already described. It is a two-seater with the forward and centre fuselage having a girder structure of riveted light-alloy angle and with a metal skin covering. The wing is of single-spar construction and fabric covered, with the entire trailing edge made up of ailerons and mechanically operated slotted flaps which are adjustable from 0 to 37 deg. The rear fuselage and tail unit are of wooden construction, and there is a trim tab on the port elevator. Non-retractable landing gear with a steerable tailwheel is fitted. The engine is a 90-h.p. Rolls-Royce Continental four-cylinder air-cooled type driving a two-blade fixed-pitch propeller. The two seats are side by side in the enclosed cabin. Dimensions of the aircraft are 27 ft. 10 1/2 in. span, 20 ft. 7 in. overall length, 838 lb. empty weight and 1,378 lb. maximum take-off weight. Cruising speed at 5,000 ft. is 118 m.p.h. and the take-off run is 985 ft. Range is 525 miles.
