Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Claude Piel (b. 15 January 1921, Paris; d. 19 August 1982) was a notable French aircraft designer and the son of an aeronautical carpenter. One of the best known French designers of light aircraft, over the years, Piel designed several single and two seat aeroplanes, the Emeraude and Diamant being the best known. His first amateur design was adapted from Henri Mignet's Pou du ciel (Flying Flea). Designated CP10, this aircraft, begun in 1943, was only ever a prototype. It crashed in 1949 after only 5h30m flight time. Piel himself was piloting and was lucky to escape from the accident.show more
