Oma Sud offers utility twin

Oma Sud Sky Technologies, an aircraft manufacturer based in Capua, Italy, brought its twin-engine Skycar with rearward-facing Lycoming engines to EAA AirVenture. It also features a twin-boom tail that allows for a rear cargo door. The rear door can be opened in flight for air-dropping emergency supplies.

It was designed for day/night/IFR operations, and can operate on unprepared grass or dirt strips. The aircraft has retractable gear and a useful load of 1,268 pounds and carries 95 gallons of useable fuel.

Design work on the aircraft began in 1988. The company has a subsidiary operation at Opa-Locka Executive Airport in Miami. Two Lycoming IO-360-C1E6 engines rated at 200 horsepower power it. The company hopes to win FAA certification by December.
