Druine D.6 Condor




A later and larger successor to the D.5 Turbi, the D.6 Condor was similarly a low-wing, wooden-framed monoplane available as a licence-built product or as a home build from plans.
The initial version was designated D.61 and was designed for Continental engines of 65 or 75 hp.
The D.62 was, like the D.31, built under licence by Rollason in the UK from 1961. Variants include versions converted for glider towing.


First flow in 1961, the D.62A was a pre-production version of which two were built.
The D.62B was the standard production version.
Rollason D.62B
The D.62C was specially equipped for glider towing with wingtip endplates, larger wheels, raised cockpit canopy, and 130 hp Rolls-Royce Continental O-240 engine


The Condor was given a dual system of c/ns when in production with Rollason. A number prefixed RAE was re-located using exactly the same number as the aircraft’s PFA number. Production was centred on Croydon, with first flights from Redhill. Production was transferred in 1973 to Shoreham although none wee finished there.
