Want to own one of the world's most stylish metal-framed, single engined, 2-seater trainer aircraft? Need a plane with an enviable history of performance and reliability? Want a world-class piece of engineering that's FAA and EASA certified, but that doesn't come with a hefty price tag? Need one platform that's ideal for training novices as well as aerobatics students?
Then you want an Alpha!
Based in Hamilton, New Zealand, Alpha Aviation produces the Alpha 2000 Series (formerly known as the Robin R2160 and R2120) training aircraft. These fun-to-fly aircraft are fast establishing themselves with Flying Schools and Aero Clubs as the 'trainer of choice' because of their ease of maintenance, their high availability rates, and their lower 'total-cost-of-ownership' proposition. The fact that they're such a great aircraft to fly AND are fully aerobatics rated makes them an even more attractive option.
So explore our site and get to know our aircraft, because we think this is the 2-seater, aerobatics-capable trainer aircraft that your head, your heart AND your hip pocket will all agree on!
