Two-seat basic training aircraft, stressed to +6g and -3g for aerobatic flying
DATWYLER MD-3 SWISS-TRAINER. The Max Datwyler company, of Bleienbach-Langenthal, announced as long ago as 1967 its plans to build a two-seat basic trainer offering, in particular, economy of construction and simplicity of maintenance and repair. Known as the Swiss-Trainer, it incorporated the ideas of a design team that included Max Datwyler himself, Hans Farner, Bjorn Andreasson from Sweden and Siegfried Stiemer in Germany. Plans to build a prototype were put into abeyance, however, and it was not until 12 August 1983 that a successful first flight was made, by Max Datwyler himself.
