Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Renard R.35 was a prototype pressurised airliner of the 1930s built by the Belgian company Constructions A ronautiques G. Renard. A three-engined low-winged monoplane with retractable undercarriage, the R.35 was destroyed in a crash on its first flight. In 1935, Alfred Renard, chief designer and co-founder of the Renard company, started design of a pressurised airliner for use by SABENA on its routes to the Belgian Congo. Renard designed a low-winged monoplane of all-metal construction, powered by three engines as required by SABENA, and received an order for a single prototype on 3 April 1936. The R.35 had a circular section fuselage, housing a pressurised cabin which accommodated twenty passengers and a flight crew of three. It was intended to be powered by a range of radial engines with the 950 hp (709 kW) Gnome-Rh ne 14K preferred by Renard, but the prototype was fitted with 750 hp (560 kW) Gnome-Rh ne 9K engines.show more
