Jean-Pierre Marie (JPM) JPM 01 Médoc / Tanagra
The JPM 01 Médoc is a French amateur-built aircraft that was designed by Jean-Pierre Marie in 1977 and produced by Les Avions Jean-Pierre Marie (JPM) of Le Mesnil-Esnard. The aircraft is supplied as plans for amateur construction, available in 2012 from Les Avions Jean-Pierre Marie (JPM).
The aircraft is named for the French community of Médoc.
The Médoc features a cantilever low-wing a two-seats-in-side-by-side configuration enclosed cockpit under a bubble canopy, fixed tricycle landing gear and a single engine in tractor configuration.
The aircraft is made from wood with its flying surfaces covered in doped aircraft fabric. Its 7.50 m (24.6 ft) span wing has an area of 9.30 sq.m (100.1 sq ft) and mounts flaps. Standard engines recommended are 60 kW (80 hp)-class Volkswagen air-cooled engines, including the 60 kW (80 hp) Limbach L2000 four-stroke powerplant.
The first example was completed by Pierre-Claude Guillem, and registered F-PGMB. It first flew on September 8, 1987. Originally fitted with a 65 hp JPX 4T-60A engine, it later received an 80 hp Limbach L2000 and the aircraft was winner of the 1988 SFACT Trophy for best multi place design. The JPM-01 built by the designer himself was first flown in August 1993, registered as F-PJPM.
A diesel engine powered version was designated JPM-01 Médoc Provence and the first example was completed by Didier Davenna in 2005. He had it registered as F-PDVN under the designation JPM-01 DDI. By mid-2012 at least fourteen Médocs has been built.
Almost forty years after its introduction the aircraft was redesigned and lightened, gaining slotted flaps to reduce stall speed.
