The Western Company Mallard is a stuntplane in Grand Theft Auto V.

Description

Design

The Mallard appears to be based on the Zivko Edge 540, known for being the most common aeroplane in the Red Bull Air Race World Series

The Mallard has a fixed taildragger undercarriage. It is available in two liveries - Sprunk (lime green), and Redwood Cigarettes (blue with red trim).

Performance

As expected of its class, the Mallard is highly manoeuvrable in the skies. Because of its light weight, it has a short takeoff distance - it can lift off into the air in approximately 3 lengths of the Mallard. Conversely, it is hard to bring it to a full stop from a fast landing, as the nose will attempt to pitch up, and bringing it down too hard will damage it. Crash deformation is also sub-par because of its lightweight construction.

As with all propeller planes in the game, the Mallard has a heavy nose that causes the pilot to have to constantly adjust altitude or risk crashing.
