P.68R (Vr) is the new real alternative in light twin aircraft:
- Metal construction, corrosion treated
- Proven economical four cylinder fuel injected powerplants from Textron- Lycoming
- Proven long lasting service life (23,900 hrs for the 1960 kg MTOW version) and the experience of over 500 aircraft operating in the world, in all areas of the world.
The aim of the P.68R (Vr) is to offer a faster and lighter more advanced aircraft for private use and for flight training applications.
Special attention has been taken in improving an avionic suite, overall comfort ergonomics and style of the cabin. The aircraft is offered with the Garmin G-1000 NXI avionic suite coupled with the Garmin GFC700 digital autopilot with yaw damper.

The new Vr is easily recognizable thanks to its retractable landing gear making the already attractive Italian look even sleeker. The absence of the windows in its luggage compartment gives to the general aircraft appearance a more compact and sporty look.
Interviews with our extensive family of enthusiastic owners and operators have confirmed the Vr as an all round performer.
Private owners graduating to their first twin, experienced pilots using the aircraft both for leisure or business and operators routinely hauling passengers from and to remote locations all fly the Vr with the same satisfaction.

The Vr is designed and made in Italy. Its clean sleek lines are accentuated by the retractable landing gear.
Special attention has been taken with the Vr to improve the pilots and passenger comfort and overall quality of the interior appointments.
Vulcanair has and is in the process of increasing the number of Authorized Spare Parts Centers which will insure quick availability of the parts in all areas of the world.
* It is the responsibility of the pilot to conduct all operations in accordance with the approved Pilot’s Operating Handbook, which is the only official source of data.
The Vr as per its other related models of the P68 Series has remarkable and benign handling characteristics, particularly at low speeds or in the unlikely engine failure. The available glass cockpit is great improvement in terms of pilot situational awareness.
A common feature of Vulcanair aircraft is economy. The aircraft has very low operating costs due to its structural simplicity, its proven aluminum construction.
While it can be true that composite aircraft have no rivets, at Vulcanair we believe that there are many advantages in aluminium construction. The first advantage is weight, compared to a similar structure made of aircraft certified composite materials.
