The first certified "all carbon" aircraft in the world!
ISSOIRE AVIATION designs, develops, certifies and sells the world's first range of “all carbon” aircraft, the APM 20 LIONCEAU, APM 30 LION and APM 40 SIMBA.
Destined for use by flying clubs, flight schools and professional private pilots, these aircraft are revolutionary in design, performance and flying qualities.
The APM 20 LIONCEAU, released from our workshops in 1999, is the first certified "all carbon" aircraft in the world!
The commitment of our teams
Our teams are fully engaged in implementing the APM 20, 30 and 40ranges:
- Our Design Engineering department produces the design and the calculations.
- Our sheet metalworking and composite materials units work on the components.
- Our assembly workshop integrates the components.
- We also handle certification of the aircraft and their marketing.
The design and manufacture of the new four-seater SIMBA allows us to demonstrate our capacity for innovation, research and development.
The airframe is the subject of a research programme to support predictive maintenance in partnership with the French Civil Aviation Authority.
Environmentally conscious, we use REACH-compliant manufacturing processes. The project has concentrated on reducing the aircraft’s fuel consumption and noise level.
Lastly, a complete test bench for the SIMBA’s structure has enabled us to perform accelerated aging cycles, with the aim of doubling the aircraft’s service life.
