Smallest multi-engine aircraft in the world

Introducing the MC10 Cri-Cri.
Designed in the early 1970s by a French aeronautical engineer Michel Colomban, the Cri-cri aircraft is the world's smallest twin-engine aircraft at only 4.9 m (16.1 ft) wingspan and 3.9 m (12.8 ft) length.

Here is the download for FS9. It's super simple to install or delete. Simply cut and paste the cricri folder into the FS9 aircraft folder and you're ready to fly, delete the folder if you don't want it any longer. No gauges to install or config files to edit. It's aerobatic and even has a virtual cockpit view!

wow that is small, I dont think I will be flying that one. Not my type of aircraft. Good find.

Wow, it's an ugly looking aircraft but it has a very good range of up to 750km.

Someone even put tiny jet engines on one! Top speed of this flight was 240 km/hour (150 mph).

all of you are wrong. the smallest aircraft, was also flown by the youngest pilot. it was a homebuilt, see below:

I don't think you read it properly...

if you look at the photo, there us a lawn mower engine on the back with a fan blade propeller for forward propulsion, and 2 cox model airplaine engines on the wingtips to help with lift. this indeed makes it multi-engined.

That's from a movie... it doesn't really fly. I get the joke. 😂

Thanks for the link. I really enjoy flying the Cri-Cri - it's very reponsive to the controls - but it's a bit of a sod to land. Maybe I'm used to vintage taildraggers, but I've just crashed it seven times in a row.

huge wind? how about slight breeze.... that thing doesn't look very stable to me. I'd take my chances with the radio flyer first. Those things are indestructible.

60 KIAS works well for landing. I use the VC view, set to 87%. This allows a good view of the runway and the airspeed indicator. You can use Shift+(-/+) to change the VC view by small increments.

What an excellent simulation it is and such fun to fly. The detail is excellent and a pleasure to be with.. Not sure what EGLL would have thought had my sim landing been done by the real thing - 3 widebodies were held for my approach to 9L!
