Pictures by Kent Smith

This HP-11 is part of the "Chicago 5". It has approximately 700hrs (as of Fall 2003.) As you can see in the pictures, it has a very nice finish, almost like glass.

The ailerons and flaps have been modified as described in "HP-11 Modifications". The L/D has been measured at 36.8 to 1. The main gear door is modified and opens to the rear of the tire well.

There are three varios in the aircraft, two mechanical and one electric. (Rico)
