Design and development


Announced in 2010, the Brumby 610 is essentially a high-wing development of the Brumby 600, featuring a slightly larger fuel capacity and heavy-duty undercarriage components. Designed primarily as a trainer to focus on landing phases, the Brumby 610 also displays benign stall characteristics, with a lower landing speed than the Brumby 600, and a stall speed of 38 knots (70 km/h).[1] It has fixed tricycle landing gear and seating for two in side-by-side configuration, with doors on each side of the cabin. The Brumby 610 is available with two powerplants; the 100 to 116 hp (75 to 87 kW) Lycoming IO-233 or 100 hp (75 kW) Rotax 912 series engine, driving a two or three bladed propeller. Unlike the Brumby 600, the Brumby 610 is not offered with the Jabiru 3300 engine option. The prototype was first flown under RA-Aus registration in March 2011, and by 2014 eight had been delivered, either as kits or complete aircraft. A factory built Brumby 610 was the first aircraft in Australia to be fitted with the Lycoming O-233 engine.[2]
