Bellanca Model 19-25 Skyrocket II (USA)
The original Bellanca Aircraft Corporation merged with companies not engaged in aircraft manufacture and lost its identity in 1959. The present company (Bellanca Aircraft Engineering Inc), formed by Mr
August Bellanca and his father, the late G. M. Bellanca, bought all the original Bellanca Aircraft designs with the exception of the 14-19. In 1971 the company was reorganised and construction of the prototype Skyrocket II was started. The first flight was made in March 1975. Orders for about 70 aircraft have been received.
The Skyrocket II is a six-seat light cabin monoplane powered by a 324 kW (435 hp) Continental GTSIO-520-F engine.
