160A is the new version of the classic Robin 2160 which ceased production almost a decade ago. The Alpha 160A is a low wing monoplane, with two seats and a big bubble canopy providing exceptional all round visibility. It has an excellent power to weight ratio and the crisp handling of a sports car. The Alpha 160A is powered by a 160HP engine, cruises at 120kts and climbs at 1100 ft/min. It is capable of all standard aerobatic manoeuvres and is the most utilised spin training aircraft in Australia. It is without a doubt the best basic and aerobatic training aircraft in Australia. Red Baron acquired brand new Alpha 160A aircraft between 2007 and 2009 and is used in our Recreational Pilots Licence (RPL), Private Pilot Licence (PPL), Basic Aerobatics and Upset Recovery Training.
