Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Miles Hawk Major was a 1930s British two-seat light monoplane designed by Miles Aircraft Limited. The Hawk Major was designed as a successor to the Miles Hawk by F.G. Miles. Main changes were a de Havilland Gipsy III engine, metal (instead of wood) engine mount, and trousered undercarriage. The prototype (designated M.2F Hawk Major) was first flown in 1934 and went on to second plane in the 1934 King's Cup Race at an average speed of 147.78 mph. A racing version was developed as the one-off single-seat M.2E Gipsy Six Hawk with a 200 hp de Havilland Gipsy Six engine.show more
