Wamira 

AAC A10 and A20 Wamira

  • The Australian Aircraft Consortium (AAC) Wamira was a proposed turboprop military trainer aircraft for the RAAF.
    The RAAF version (A10) was to have side by side seating.
    A proposed joint effort with Westland (UK) was for a tandem seat version (A20) for the RAF.
    Both versions didn't proceed beyond prototype and engineering mock up stages.
    The RAAF ended up buying the tandem seat Pilatus PC-9A and the RAF bought the Short Tucano.
    The side by side prototype is held at the RAAF Museum Point Cook.
    The tandem seat Engineering Mock Up (EMU) was bought back to Australia by Moorabbin Air Museum.
