HP Aircraft HP-8 Airmate

Bryan HP-8


R. E. Schreder built the improved all-metal HP-8 in 1958 and won the Nationals with it in that year again in 1960. He set world records with it in all three speed categories in 1959, and two of these were raised again by the same ship flown by George Moffat. The solo example belongs to the National Soaring Museum.
