Description  The Auster is a superb trainer and touring plane for those willing to enjoy classic flying. It revels in short take off and landings (150m), offers a huge array of speeds from just above 30mph (stall @ 28mph) to 130mph+ thanks to its low wing loading and huge flaps. Austers are happy in X-wind conditions. Thanks to its auxiliary tank, this one will fly for over 4 hours, four people on board, consuming less than 6.5 gals/hr. Oil consumption is also minimal at 1 ltr every 7-8 hours on current engine condition.
