GUMNAM is constructed using a technique that we have been refining over the past 20 years: ALUMINIUM ALLOY TUBING covered with "STABILISED SAIL CLOTH". This technique has many advantages over other methods of construction, such as economy, light-weight, and easy replacement of components by the user itself, making maintenance and repairs cheap and simple. Moreover, the structure will deform under impact, absorbing energy, thus providing an excellent passive safety factor.
GUMNAM features full dual controls, and is highly suitable for flight training operations. Its behavior in flight is very similar to a conventional Light Aircraft. This makes GUMNAM an excellent machine for Basic Flight Training at minimal Capital & Running Costs, which are very low when compared to a conventional Light Aircraft.
