T-Xc (Trainer) Characteristics

General Description

Single-engine piston, low-wing monoplane;
Primary and secondary structure constructed entirely of carbon fiber, cured in autoclave;
Retractable landing gear (tricycle);
Cabin equipped with a front compartment for two occupants (instructor and student) arranged side by side;
Rear compartment for cargo transportation;
Access to the front compartment of the cab through "seagull" doors (hinged upwards);
Access to the rear compartment through a door on the left side of the fuselage (also of the “seagull” type).

Employment

Military primary / basic trainer, can be used for night flying training and flying by instruments;
It features full dual commands, where both crew members have access to all controls, levers, knobs, pedals and selector switches that control the aircraft in all phases of the operation;
Fully acrobatic aircraft, without limitation on acrobatic maneuvers from +6 G to -3G.

Certification

The T-Xc was designed to meet the certification requirements established by international aviation authorities (ANAC, FAA and EASA), according to RBAC Regulation Part 23 (FAR-23 equivalent to the FAA);
In the trainer version the aircraft will be certified in the category: "Acrobatic";
Other requirements specific to military operation or established by public agencies may be used to meet special demands.

Landing Gear

Tricycle type, telescopic, with hydro-pneumatic shock absorbers incorporated;
Retractable with retraction and extension potentiated by hydraulic actuators;
Equipped with a set of tubeless tire and wheel;
Designed for operation on unpaved runways;
Positive locking in both positions (up and down), equipped with signaling and safety systems according to regulations;
Emergency extension (free-fall), and alerts for "power lever in aft position" and flap down to avoid forgetting.

Flight Controls

Primary controls: Driven by rods for elevator and ailerons, and by cables for the rudder, with pedals and joystick being duplicated;
Flaps actuated by electromechanical actuator connected to a central torque tube, preventing asymmetry;
Flaps drive the ailerons to extend half their course through a bypass mechanism that will assist the flaps;
At maximum deflection of 45 degrees, the ailerons are deflected by approximately 22 degrees, increasing support and improving performance takeoff and landing;
Compensation commands ("trim") only on the elevator and rudder, acting through electromechanical devices associated with springs, not having the need for aerodynamics compensation;
Even when in extreme positions of compensation, the pilots will be able to override in the occurrence of "trim runaway".

Powerplant

It consists of a Lycoming acrobatic engine, 6-cylinder naturally aspirated, its accessories, and a 3 blade propeller with "spinner", located ahead of the aircraft. The set will be certified for operation in acrobatic flights and the cabin is isolated by a firewall.
