Fauvel AV.48
 
The AV-48 was conceived from 1960, with a glass fibre structure and a laminar profile Wortmann FX-66H159. A fire in the workshop in which this hang-glider was to be built suspended the development of this project, which then continued with some modifications. In particular an increased scale of about sixty cm (to 16,70 m). Charles Fauvel was unable to continue the development of this machine before his death in 1979.
