Fauvel AV.44

fauvelav44ld

This all-wood side by side two-seater or three-seater tailess monoplane was a direct development of the AV-10 aircraft which flew in 1935. The AV-44 could be powered by a variety of engines in the 90-130 hp range, and was considered as a Short Take-Off and Landings (STOL) aircraft. Alternativelly, it could be powered by two engines mounted in the nose and driving two co-axial propellers. Plans were available for amateur construction, and a scale model was built in France by Mr Fermaut. Five AV-44 were under construction in 1978, but none were completed after Charles Fauvel's death.
