VL Paarma Aircraft Information

VL Paarma

VL Paarma was a Finnish biplane, two-seated trainer aircraft, designed by the State Aircraft Factory (Valtion Lentokonetehdas) for use with the Finnish Air Force. A prototype was constructed in 1930-31 and made its maiden flight on March 20, 1931. The aircraft was however under-powered, and the flight characteristics were poor. Suggestions for improvements were made and the engine was replaced by a higher powered one. The aircraft was damaged in 1933 and was never repaired.
