  • Less than 350 lbs empty weight, a micro plane at its best!
  • Powered by a 30 hp VW car engine or a Porsche — really.

So do you know what this aircraft is?

    This looks very much like the French Druine D.31 Turbulent. Machines had various engines, including VW, Porsche and others.

    It has quite a bit of the look of a Mooney Mite, but with a modified canopy… and skis instead of wheels, of course.
