ASTRA 1125SP
OVERVIEW

In 1985, Israel Aircraft Industries introduced the midsize transcontinental Astra, a clean-sheet improvement over the Westwind. With a moderately swept low-wing design, the Astra was a faster model. Five years later, IAI announced the redesigned Astra SP. Its aerodynamic wing and new airframe design were credited with increasing the IFR range and allowing zero flap takeoffs. In regards to performance, the Astra SP made leaps and bounds from the original. Its range increased from 2,755 nautical miles to 2,815 nm due largely to aerodynamic features. Additionally, the SP benefitted from a 400 pound increase in its hot/high climb limit. Typical cabin configuration is club-and-a-half seating for six passengers. It is certified for up to nine. Because of its design modifications, the cabin is able to accommodate an aft, full-width lavatory and a forward galley. Measurements are 4.9 feet wide, 17.2 feet long and a near unheard of height in a midsize jet of 5.6 feet.
