Mudry CAP-232 (F-GXCM) at the Belgian Air Force Days 2014, Kleine-Brogel (Belgium)
The CAP Aviation CAP-23x family is a family of aircraft designed for competition aerobatics. The CAP-230 airframe was a direct development
of the CAP-21 competition single seater strengthened to cope with a 300 hp 6-cylinder Lycoming AEIO-540 engine instead of the 200 hp original 4-cylinder Lycoming AEIO-360. The CAP-232, just like the 230 and 231/231EX were slightly modified to strengthen the fuselage structure after
a fatal accident in 2005 which grounded them for a full year. Fuselage rib n°2 holding the landing gear and the wing spar
has been reinforced externally and internally.
