• The thrust evolution of the FU-240

    The energy level of the basic FU-24 airframe has been transformed with respect to its overall performance, as compared to the early 225 and 240 bhp models which we flew during 1955 to mid-1960s. The static thrust produced by the 240 bhp Continental O-470 with its two-blade Hartzell propellor was about 950 pounds at sea-level.
