Aero-TV: Almost A Mustang -- Titan's T-51 (Part 1)

EVERYONE Loves A Mustang... Here's One That Can Be Owned/Flown -- Affordably!

With real-live P-51s pretty much ruining a million dollar bill these days, there are few of us that can aspire to ownership of such a treasure.

However; if you're willing to scale down your expectations a bit, there could be a solid Mustang replica in your future -- and a hell of a beautiful one, at that. John Williams, he of Titan Tornado fame, was one of the passionate Mustang fans that decided that the only way he was going to own the (affordable) plane of his dreams, was to build it for himself. And best of all, having created and engineered a beautifully detailed 3/4 scale version, he has made this bird available in kit form for one and all.

Titan Aircraft's T-51 is the newest addition to their highly regarded family of light aircraft. Titan Aircraft's replica P-51 combines friendly low speed handling characteristics with agility and high performance. The T-51 is rated at a +6g/-4g load limit capability at a gross weight of 1450 pounds. When operating with the 912S engine, and with the landing gear retracted, the cruise speed is 150mph. The stall speed, in landing configuration, is 39 mph.

An all-metal kit, the T-51 has an estimated build time of 1600 hours and includes all required material, components and fasteners. The kit does not, however, include the engine, propeller and instruments because of different customer preferences. When equipped with the Rotax 912S engine, controllable propeller, and a full compliment of necessary flight instruments; they expect the finished T-51 to cost well under $80,000.00. Other, more powerful, engine options are also available.

The Titan T-51 has an Empty Weight between 850-1180 pounds, a Gross Weight of 1320-1800 pounds and a Wing Span of 24'. The Cabin Width is 26", Fuel Capacity is 25 Gallons and engine selections include the Rotax 912s, 914, Jabiru 332a, or the Suzuki V6 (offering a power range of 100-270HP). With a Vne of 197 Mph, the T-51 cruises at 150-175 MPH, and boasts a standard range of 720SM. The Stall Speed is 42-48 Mph, and its climb rate ranges from 1200-2100 FPM. Takeoff and landing rolls require as little as 300-400'. The T-51's basic kit price is $54,900.
