Heinkel He 274
S.N.C.A.C. AAS 1



A four engine bomber, the Heinkel He 274 was the detail design responsibility of Societe Anonyme des Usines Farman's Suresnes factory in occupied France. Fitted with a pressurised cabin in the nose, the aircraft was powered by four 1305kW Daimler-Benz DB 603A-2 engines and featured a lengthened version of the He 177A-3 fuselage, with a new high-aspect-ratio wing and twin fins and rudders.

Two prototypes were ordered in May 1943, together with four He 274A-0 pre-production examples, which were to have 1417kW DB 603G engines. Despite an unsuccessful German attempt to destroy the almost-complete first prototype when they retreated from Paris in July 1944, the aircraft was finished by the French after the liberation. The first flight was from Orleans-Bricy on 30 December 1945 as the AAS 01 A.

Two prototypes were built in France by the S.N.C.A.C.

It was used later to test-fly models of such aircraft as the Aerocentre NC 270 and the Sud-Ouest SO 4000.
