Sudan's Safat-01 aircraft runs on car fuel

Here are two photos of the Safat-01 aircraft, a two-seater propeller plane produced at Sudan's state Safat Aviation Complex. It is Sudan's first home-manufactured aircraft -- a $15,000 training plane that runs on car fuel.

Happy for Sudan aerospace. Does not mean I agree with the president on other matters. I think the aeroplane should be marketed Africa wide for police forces and farming-anti poaching exercises. The plane should be priced cheaply.Now would be nice to work on the next thing a twin prop freighter and passenger plane.
