Jodel DC-1

M. Alain Cauchy approached M. Delemontez after the 1973 oil crisis wanting to revive the D-11 concept, this time aiming to get the most out of a converted VW engine. The resulting two-seater was named DC1, after Delemontez and Cauchy. After roughly 5000 hours of design, engineering and building the DC1 took to the air for the first time in 1978. The plane is indeed much more related to the D9 than the D11. Major changes are that it has a more modern wing profile, and the fuselage is wide enough for two.
The resulting plane has an empty weight of only 216kg its gross weight is 450. With a 1600cc converted Volkswagen engine the cruise speed is 170km/h, and fuel consumption 11 lt/hr.
