The UTVA 66 is a well engineered and very ruggedly built STOL military utility aircraft designed for rough and short field operations.

It has been superbly designed for ease of field maintenance. All inspection panels are quick release type and enable inspection and lubrication.

It is a large four place aircraft incorporating dual stick controls, balanced flight control surfaces incorporating elevator trim.

As an illustration of the utility and large interior size of the aircraft, in the �air ambulance� configuration, the right front and rear seats when removed allow two stretchers to be inserted through the upward opening rear canopy and carried one above the other on the right side with a medical attendant seated on the left behind the pilot..

The aircraft may be fitted with either: floats, skis or wheels. The V-51 series also includes wing weapons hard-points and an armament panel. Additionally it is equipped with a glider tow hitch and was routinely used as a parachute jump aircraft.
