Fiat APR.2 Aircraft Information

Fiat APR.2

Manufacturer: Fiat Aviazione
First flight: 1935
Number built: 1

The FIAT APR.2 was a prototype airliner built in Italy in 1935. It was a sleek, low-wing cantilever monoplane of conventional configuration with tailwheel undercarriage, the main units of which retracted into the engine nacelles, one on each wing. The cabin could carry 12 passengers, and at the time of its introduction on Ala Littoria's Milan-Turin-Paris route, it was believed to be the fastest airliner in regular service in the world. Despite this, only one example was built, although the design served as a starting point for the Fiat BR.20 bomber.
