The name “Pipistrel ALPHA Trainer” describes the exact purpose of this exciting new aircraft designed for flying schools. The aircraft has been engineered with the “essence of training” as its primary design goal; training has to start somewhere, just like the alphabet starts with the letter “A” therefore this new aircraft bears the name ALPHA.

它的名字‘Pipistrel ALPHA Trainer’也体现了这款飞机就是为飞行学校训练而设计制造的。
这架飞机是以“训练本质”为主要设计目标。
千里之行始于足下,就像字母A 代笔一切的开始一样,因此这架新飞机名为Alpha。

The times have been changing, but the ailing economy doesn’t mean that people need to stop learning to fly. Most aircraft are too expensive for the average person or flight school to purchase, but Pipistrel has developed an entirely new approach to flight training and at a cost nearly half that of our competitors.

世界从未停止改变的步伐,在快速发展的今天,不断有人展开新的飞行学习生涯。但绝大多数飞机对于普通人或飞行学校来说都太昂贵了。然而Pipistrel开发出一种全新的飞行训练方式,成本几乎是我们竞争对手的一半。

The new ALPHA Trainer is packed with some exciting features! Not only it is affordable to purchase, it is also very economical to maintain and fun to fly! In fact, we believe that no other LSA training aircraft offers as low operation costs as the new Pipistrel ALPHA Trainer!

全新的ALPHA Trainer有很多令人兴奋的特点。不仅价格便宜,维护成本低并且飞起来也非常有乐趣。我们相信,全新的ALPHA教练机在运营成本上比任何一款轻型运动类飞机都要低。

Here are our ideas what a proper UL or LSA training airplane should be like. All of them have been incorporated in the ALPHA Trainer:

What is it that makes the Pipistrel ALPHA Trainer so special?

是什么让Pipistrel ALPHA如此与众不同?

Undercarriage
起落架
The main undercarriage, which is made of composite material, has been reinforced to handle the hardest landings even at MTOW, which provides for a full fuel payload of 507 lbs (230 kg). The undercarriage is designed to be strong and durable and capable of accepting hard landings made by student pilots. The new nose leg is 2 inches (5 cm) shorter, lowering the nose and improving the visibility during taxi. is not sacrificed because the Pipistrel ALPHA Trainer uses a smaller 63” (162 cm) diameter fixed pitch propeller.

主起落架是由复合材料制成,坚固耐用,即使在MTOW (507磅(230千克)的满油载荷下也可以保证重着陆后的飞机安全。新的前轮减震支柱缩短了2英寸(5厘米),降低机头高度提高滑行的可见度。这也并没有损失螺旋桨的离地间隙,因为Pipistrel ALPHA教练机采用较短的63英寸(162厘米)直径固定螺距螺旋桨,从而保证了安全距离。

Fuel tank
油箱
The Pipistrel ALPHA Trainer aircraft has a new central 13.2 US gal (50 l) fuel tank. 13.2 US gal (50 l) does not sound like much when you are talking about conventional aircraft, but Pipistrel aircraft are much more efficient! In reality 13.2 US gal (50 l) is more than enough for the ALPHA Trainer. The fuel tank now has a large opening which means it can be filled directly from fast flowing avgas pumps which are found at the large majority of airfields. The capacity will give the Pipistrel ALPHA Trainer aircraft at least 324 NM (600 km) range 30 minutes reserve at normal cruise speeds of 108 kts (200 km/h). In the training role doing circuits the aircraft will be using less than 2.5 gallons per hour (7.6 liters per hour), effectively giving you 5 hours endurance from just 13.2 US gal (50 l) of fuel.

Pipistrel ALPHA教练机配有一个13.2加仑(50升)的中央油箱。和传统飞机比,13.2加仑(50升)听起来不并大,但Pipistrel ALPHA非常高效!实际上,13.2加仑(50升)对Pipistrel ALPHA来说是绰绰有余。油箱有一个很大的加油口,这使得在大部分机场,它可以直接快速的加油。此油量让Pipistrel ALPHA教练机至少航行324海里(600公里)。并且在巡航速度为108 kts(200公里/小时)的情况下完成30分钟的储备燃油飞行。在本场五边训练中,飞机耗油率少于2.5加仑(7.6升)每小时,高效地让你从13.2加仑加仑(50升)燃料中获得5小时的航时。

The engine 发动机
The Pipistrel ALPHA Trainer is fitted with the ever reliable Rotax 912 80 hp engine. While some may question whether 80 hp is enough, those familiar with Pipistrel know that our designs maximize performance with the given power. The 80 hp engine powers the Pipistrel ALPHA Trainer to a respectable, Cessna 172 cruise speed of 108 knots (200km/h) and will achieve very short take-off distance and climb rates of over 1000 fpm (5 m/s). Pipistrel believes that the Rotax 80 hp engine is the ideal choice for a training aircraft, it is smooth and reliable, it is frugal with the fuel and the 2000 hour/15 year TBO is achievable.

Pipistrel ALPHA教练机配备了可靠的Rotax 912 80马力发动机。虽然可能会有人质疑80马力是否够用,但熟悉Pipistrel的人都知道我们的飞机在同样的马力下可以实现最优的性能。
80马力足以让Pipistrel ALPHA教练机让人折服
赛斯纳172巡航速度为108节(200公里/小时),可以短距离起飞,而且爬升率超过1000英尺(5米/秒)。Pipistrel认为Rotax 80马力发动机是教练机的理想选择,它平顺可靠,节俭燃料,2000小时/ 15年的大修间隔时间是完全可以实现的。

New wing design
新型机翼设计
The Pipistrel ALPHA Trainer has a new wing design based on the already successful and proven Pipistrel Virus SW aircraft. With the redesigned wing the aircraft does not require airbrakes to land, further simplifying the cockpit controls for students. The new wings feature redesigned flaperons which now have +25° of flap travel enabling short field landings.

Pipistrel ALPHA教练机全新机翼设计是基于已非常成功Virus SW机型完成的。全新设计的机翼,可以使飞机不再需要减速板便可降落,进一步简化了学员对驾驶舱的控制。新机翼重新设计了襟翼构型,有了25°的襟翼行程,完全可以做到短距离着陆。

New Propeller
全新的螺旋桨
The new propeller for the Pipistrel ALPHA Trainer is Pipistrel’s own design, CNC machined in-house. It is manufactured from wood and is then protected with a durable covering including leading edge protection. Being a wooden propeller there is very little vibration which contributes towards the smooth running of the aircraft. A special covering makes the propeller very durable, offering years of use in a normal training environment.

Pipistrel ALPHA的全新螺旋桨是由本公司自主研发,数控机床内部加工而成。它是木制的,表面有一层可靠耐用的材料来对它进行保护,包括边缘的地方。由于是木制螺旋桨,好处就是飞行的时候震动小,可以保证飞机平稳飞行。其表面上保护层非常耐用,能够保证螺旋桨在正常环境下拥有较长的使用寿命。

Materials
材料
The Pipistrel ALPHA Trainer is manufactured from state-of-the-art composite materials and has an empty weight of 100 pounds less than most competitors’ aircraft. This, combined with reduced drag, is one of the reasons why the Pipistrel ALPHA Trainer can offer such good performance and economy.

Pipistrel ALPHA教练机是由最先进的复合材料制造而成,其空机重量比大多同类飞机轻100磅。再加上其较小的阻力,这也是Pipistrel ALPH教练机为什么会拥有良好的性能和经济性的原因之一。

Robust and durable 强力和耐力
Durability in the training market requires careful planning. For this reason Pipistrel have chosen to supply the Pipistrel ALPHA Trainer with extra heavy-duty seat fabric, the wheel spats are also removed from this aircraft meaning it’s impossible for a student to break them getting in and out and in the unlikely event of a puncture the wheel can be removed and replaced in around 2 minutes, again design features helping to keep the Pipistrel ALPHA Trainer in the air and earning money rather than being in the repair shop.

飞行训练市场是非常看重飞机的耐用性的。出于这个原因,Pipistrel ALPHA 教练机选用了超级结实耐用的座椅材料。飞机取消了机轮扰流罩,这就意味着在学员不断上下飞机的过程中,轮子也不会被损坏,即使被戳破也可以在两分钟内更换。这样的设计,有助于帮助在空中赚钱而不是在维修上花钱。

Luggage compartment
行李舱
The ALPHA Trainer has a luggage rack for storing of tie downs and ropes, water bottles, first aid kit and other accessories. Access to the storage area is through the cockpit seats which fold forward to offer easy and unrestricted access. There are also two large pockets on the sides of the instrument panel, ideal for storing maps and water bottles during flight.

ALPHA教练机有一个行李架,用来存放飞机固定绳、水瓶、急救箱和其他配件。向前折叠驾驶舱的座椅,有一个入口可以随时随地进入行李舱。在仪表盘的侧面也有两个大口袋,非常适合在飞行期间存放地图和水瓶。

Brakes
刹车
The brakes have been redesigned and simplified for the Pipistrel ALPHA Trainer, offering exceptional braking performance even on short airfields. The directly steerable nose wheel can easily turn the aircraft in a very short distance and the brake shoes can be replaced in less than 15 minutes, keeping your maintenance costs down.

从新从简设计后的刹车,即使在短跑道着陆,Pipistrel ALPHA教练机也能提供了优良的刹车性能。可操控的前轮大大缩短转弯半径,刹车片十五分钟就能换好,从而降低了维修的成本和时间成本。

Avionics
航空电子设备
During our quarter of century of aircraft building experience we have learned that a training aircraft must have a classic-looking instrument panel, so we have kept this look but modernised the instruments for better visibility and reliability using large and very easy to read 3 1/8” (80 mm) ASI and ALT.

据我们25年的飞机建造经验,我们知道,训练飞机必须有一个非常传统简洁的仪表板,所以我们一直保持这种外观,但使用的都是现代化的仪器,以提高可见度和可靠性,而且还用了大且易读的3 1/8” (80 mm) 空速表和高度表

Conventional-looking aircraft instruments are all clearly labelled with the correct colour coded speeds and temperatures in a traditional and familiar training format.

Variometer and engine RPM counter have two separate displays while the other engine parameters are displayed in a common multifunction very bright full-colour display with audio alarms for exceeded values, which significantly increases the safety.

传统的空速表和温度表都用熟悉的方式清晰地标出,并用正确的颜色标注。
电压表和发动机转速计数器有两个单独的显示器,而其他发动机参数在一个非常明亮的多功能全彩色显示器上显示,若参数超出正常范围系统会发出音频报警,这也大大提高了飞行的安全性。

All avionics are well-lit with their own light source which enables good visibility during all kinds of light conditions; equally visible during both day and night flying.

Looking at the features, quality, performance and economy, the new Pipistrel ALPHA Trainer represents the best value in a composite aircraft in either USA LSA or EU UL class for the training market. When deciding on the ALPHA Trainer, be aware that you are purchasing a full-featured, fully equipped aeroplane, ready to operate on the flight line with no hidden costs or small print.

所有的航空电子设备都配有自己的光源,在各种光线条件下都清晰可见,在白天和夜晚飞行中识别度是一样的。

着眼于功能,质量,性能和经济性,全新的Pipistrel ALPHA教练机代表了在USA LSA或EU UL级的训练市场中的最好价值。当决定购买Pipistrel ALPHA教练机,你其实已经购买了一个功能多样、设备齐全, 无任何隐形消费的教练飞机。
