External 

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.

Design

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. 

Customer support

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.

Safety

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.

Economy

A common feature of Vulcanair aircraft is economy. The aircraft has very low operating costs due to its structural simplicity, its proven aluminum construction.

Material choice

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.
