Mignet HM 1100 Cordouan


Avions Henri Mignet HM.1100 Cordouan first flew in 1998.

The type was not intended to be sold as a kit, but it meets the French ULM or ultralight category, having a maximum take-off weight under 1000 lb.

The fuselage is steel tube framed with a composite shell, and it seats two, side by side. It has a nose wheel undercarriage and although retaining the tandem wings (which traditionally do away with the need for ailerons) Mignet has incorporated ailerons on the rear wing, giving a classic three-axis control via rudder pedals and a single central control stick. If requested a two control model can be made.

Fitted with a Rotax 912, the prototype maximum speed is 117 mph and normal cruise 93 mph. It won’t stall, and it can take off fully loaded from a 260 ft grass strip, and land even shorter. Rate of climb is about 900 fpm.


The Cordouan’s forward wing is entirely free of pitch, control being effected through aerodynamic compensator. The ailerons are on the trailing edge of the rear wing. The fuselage is moulded in composite.
