The Hatz CB-1 Biplane is a two
place with generous wing area - enough to make flying a pleasure on
as little as 85 HP. Low landing speed, slow flight capabilities,
plus a comfortable 90 mph cruise has been combined in an airplane
still small enough for the homebuilder to undertake. Aircraft are
plans built but many parts are available.
A straight-forward design with
simple details and a minimum of time consuming jig work is the
result of many hours of planning and testing.
Construction: steel tube fuselage
and tail; spruce spars with truss rib wing construction; bungee
shocks for the gear; 6 x 6 wheels with brakes; dual controls; space
for overnight bag on shelf in front cockpit; fuel capacity 33
gallons in two tanks, or 20 gallons in one tank (centre section).
