The Robin DR400 is a wooden sport monoplane manufactured by Robin Aircraft in Darois, France. The Robin DR400 first flew in 1972 and is still in production. Newest designated model is DR401 with a tricycle fixed landing gear, a forward-sliding canopy, and can carry up to four people. As a powerplant, it has one Lycoming O-360-A air-cooled piston engine 180 horsepower (130 kW). The Robin DR400 is considered as quiet during in-flight due to wooden frame.
The Robin DR400’s high performance lies in the cranked wings, which wingtip section has a lower angle of attack to the airflow than the inner section creating less drag in cruise flight. The maximum take-off weight is 1,100 kg (2,425 lb), including a maximum amount of fuel of 190 liters and up to 4 passengers seated. The normal cruise speed is 134 knots (249 km/h) with the maximum flight range of 790 nautical miles (1,470 km). Being fully loaded the Robin DR400 needs at least 610 meters (2,000 feet) of runway for take-off and can climb up to 15,490 feet (4,720 meters) as a service ceiling.
The Robin DR400 is flyable in the next generation of Microsoft Flight Simulator Standard, Deluxe, and Premium Deluxe Editions.
