Design and development

In order to replace obsolete training aircraft for pilots, Fizir FN biplane, Yugoslav Royal Air Force (YRAF) Command in the mid-1936th, the contest for election of a new type of school for basic training aircraft pilots. Terms of the competition were that the new aircraft is the low wing should ensure a smooth transition to the modern low wing fighters of that time who were in the arms of the Yugoslav Royal Air Force (Hurricane, Messerschmitt and IK-3). Rogožarski Factory has decided to participate in this competition, so engaged for the occasion, but two well-known aeronautical engineer Miroslav Nenadovića and Mitrovic Milenko-Spirta, who were immediately taken up this task. Prototype of the same year began and ended in May 1940th when he made ā€‹ā€‹the first test flight. After careful examination of the factory was handed over to the plane Test group YRAF for examination. After testing the plane opitnoj group was transferred to the first pilot school in Pancevo and the second pilot's school in Kraljevo to flight instructors and give their opinion on the usability "Brucoš" aircraft.

Operational history

Aircraft "Brucoš" is produced only as a prototype for a competition announced by the command of Yugoslav Royal Air Force. During the testing was done in the aircraft repair plant and remedied deficiencies observed during testing and the plane is able to fly again before October kaja 1940th year. Simultaneously with the repair and reconstruction of the wings made ā€‹ā€‹so that the wing may enter into reverse (this was the first Yugoslav aircraft with folding wings). Unfortunately the Commission has already given an opinion on the tested planes that were unfavorable for "Brucoš". Factory Rogožarski objected to this view, and formed a new commission to re-examine all the additional aircraft that participated in the contest. The second Commission declared plane Aero-2 for the best. Desiring however to sell his plane, and cooperating in a lot of time with the Marine aviation, the factory has made the project Rogožarski seaplane "Brucoš" with Walter Six powerful engine power 140 kW, and the metal of the Canadian company EDO floats. This aircraft was offered command of the Navy as a seaplane for basic training. At the time of the beginning of April war "Brucoš" plane in the hangar was the experiment group at Zemun airport, from where the 10th April 1941 flew to the War airport in the Veliki Radinci where it was relocated first fighter brigade.
