VENTURA 4

The Grown-up 4 seat Savannah

Ventura-4

General Information

The Ventura-4 is the latest in a prestigious series of aircrafts and is the result of extensive studies by the ICP R&D department aimed at satisfying the growing market demand for a larger aircraft with more space and a larger load capacity. All metal construction and manufactured with cutting edge industrial technologies. The Ventura-4 is a high wing aircraft that can accommodate engines with power ranging from 140 hp Turbo charged Rotax 915is to 180 hp Lycoming O-360

By virtue of the new wing with Riblett GA 35-418 airfoil, The Ventura-4 can approach for landing as slow as 50 mph at maximum weight and with its high propeller clearance, can operate from semi-prepared runways shorter than 250 meters with a large margin of safety. Combining such excellent STOL characteristics with high cruising speed and brilliant manoeuvrability with brisk roll response, the aircraft offers optimal performance in any situation giving the pilot full control and a lot of fun!

Space. Reliability. Performance. These are the buzz words of The Ventura-4
