pazpl-9


The Pazmany PL-9 Stork is an 3/4 replica of the Fieseler Storch. It authenticity is backed up by more than 9000 hours of aeronautical engineering design in order to obtain the same flying and handling characteristics of the original German Aircraft. The fuselage is welded chrome alloy steel tube, with aluminum sheet metal/fabric covered wing and empenage.

Designed to take off and land in extremely short distances, the Storch had a take off ground roll of 131 feet and a landing roll of 36 feet with 13 miles per hour head wind.

It has a well-proven aircraft configuration designed for a number of functions such as fish spotting, forest fire detection, farm work, missionary work, etc. The PL-9 Stork has a cruise speed of 104 mph with a standard Lyc. O-320/150 hp engine. Optional Subaru 2.2 lt engine.

Using the new Pazmany 3/4 scale plans, amateur builder Ruben Hardy embarked on his own construction of the PL-9. With great enthusiasm, financial commitment, and building ingenuity, bringing the first new Stork to life.
In March l999 at Oshkosh, Wisconsin his plane was displayed at the EAA convention to great public interest, in the presence of the design engineer Ladislao Pazmany.
