PZL/Bielsko SZD-45A Ogar


Built in Poland by PZL the SZD - 45 Ogar is a purpose built motor glider. This example is owned by Lionel Morrey and is available to suitably qualified members.

Powered by a single 65hp Limbach SL 1700 engine it will climb at a modest 350ft/min.

The cruise can be maintained at between 2300 - 3100 rpm which will give you an airspeed of between 50 & 65 knots. Fuel consumption at this rate is about 9 ltrs/hr. A partially retracting undercarriage will improve the performance only marginally.
