Know-how and passion of Swiss aeronautical engineers.
The P-16 is emblematic of the jets designed in Switzerland. Like the N-20 Aiguillon and Piranha fighters, it was never mass produced for many reasons. Only the Lear Jet business jet became a commercial success after its exile in the United States. Twelve years of adventure (1948-1960) until the realization of combat aircraft unique in the world, which demonstrated the viability of the concepts developed and designed by Swiss engineers. In 1953, the ejection cabin, vector thrust, thrust reversers and head-up sight made the N-20 quadjet an avant-garde aircraft.
From projects to flight tests, history, chronology, anecdotes, political-financial controversies and a host of technical details supported by precise, original drawings and numerous photos published for the first time. A document ! The twists and turns of a formidable technical and human adventure.
