Synergy in the M55 Geophysica chemistry payload:

The technical characteristics of the M55 Geophysica :

  • Length: 22.9 m
  • Wing span: 37.5 m
  • Speed: max 750 km/h
  • Record altitude: 21,830 m
  • Operative radius: ca. 3,500 km (17 km altitude)
  • Flight endurance: 5 h 15’ (17 km altitude)
  • Takeoff weight: max 24,700 kg
  • Payload weight: max 1,500 kg
  • Payload volume: max 11.83 m3
  • Thrust: 2 turbofan engines 5,000 kgf
  • Takeoff/landing run: 900 m
  • Runway required: 1,800m (asphalt)
  • Cross wind on takeoff/landing: max 36 km/h
  • The wide 6.6m track resulting from the twin-beam structure of the aircraft, provides stability during takeoff and landing.
  • The presence of two engines and the 1:22 gliding ratio (comparable to that of a motor-glider) ensures high operative safety.
