RWD-5 is a pre-war Polish aircraft. Its operating replica is currently staying on small air-field in Łososina Dolna, Sądecczyzna. It is a property of Stowarzyszenie Lotnictwa Eksperymentalnego [experimental aviation association] from Nowy Sącz. Association's pilots proudly present the aircraft on air shows and picnics.
RWD-5 will not make you lose your head with daring acrobatics, it does not smoke nor roar on the shows, but is was this plane that beat the world record by flying across the Atlantic, 3582 km, with Stanisław Skarżyński at the rudder in 1933 in the class of aircraft up to 450 kg. Today, it is the smallest aircraft which flew that distance.
RWD-5 replica was test flown on 28.08.2000. Since 2003, the aircraft is approved for normal operations. Jerzy Mularczyk is the head designer of RWD-5 replica, flying with historical identification marks SP-LOT.
