Photo of the Day: Soaring Symphony

Friday, July 13th, 2012


The two-seat Symphony 160 is shown here over Quebec, near where the airplane was manufacturered. An aircraft report in the September 2005 AOPA Pilot said the airplane was intended to be sold not as a trainer, but as a recreational vehicle, much like a motorcycle or a boat. Its 160-horsepower Textron Lycoming O-320-D2A burned less than 8 gallons per hour in cruise flight. Photograph by Mike Fizer.—Jill W. Tallman
