Hanriot - 1910

Designed by Rene Hanriot, this design was known for its simplicity and elegance. It was strongly built and its most recognizable feature was its mahogany-skinned fuselage. The fuselage was built much like a racing skiff and required minimal wire bracing.
Cole Palen, Mike Lockhart and Andy Keefe built the Hanriot in the winter of 1974 from drawings and details appearing in FLIGHT and other books on period aeroplane construction. The controls are similar to the original, with the right stick controlling the elevator by fore-and-aft movements, the left stick controlling wing warping by left and right movements. The coupé button on the left stick can kill the engine for speed control.
