With over 300 CAP10s out there in more than 20 countries, the design has accumulated in excess of 5000,000 flight hours. The wooden structure airframe has proven to be a stalwart design that is user-friendly, sturdy and reliable.  For over two decades, the CAP10, with its side-by-side seating and dual controls, has provided excellent training for military, aeroclubs and private schools.

The CAP10s continued popularity and outstanding track record presage a continuation of the standard of excellence already in place.

The two CAP 10s flown by the French Connection Airshow are  standard aircraft except for the smoke system and the Mattituck Red Gold Engines.

The new CAP 10 will feature a better payload, a carbon/wood spar, better rate of roll and more comfort. This aircraft will be available by Summer of 2000 in the USA. Options can be reserved with a $3,000.00 deposit only..

The selling price will be around $155,000.00 depending upon the rate of exchange.
