Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The T-211 is a light aircraft designed in the US by John Thorp in 1945. It is a low-wing monoplane of conventional design with fixed tricycle undercarriage and a sliding canopy. It bears some family resemblance to the Piper Cherokee, a design that Thorp contributed to significantly. Thorp constructed eight prototypes, and had the design certified by the FAA, but was unable to find a foothold in the Cessna-dominated post-war US market. The project was therefore shelved until the homebuilding boom saw the rights to the aircraft acquired first by Adams Industries and then by Thorp Aero in the 1970s, the latter firm building five examples as the Thorp Arrow. The kits were then manufactured by AD Aerospace in the United Kingdom and Venture Light Aircraft in the United States.show more
