    Description

    The Jodel D.11 is a French two-seat monoplane designed and developed by Société Avions Jodel.

    General Information

    The first example flew on 4 April 1950. Of conventional tailwheel configuration, the D11 featured a fixed, spatted undercarriage, and accommodated pilot and passenger side-by-side. The wing panels outboard of the landing gear struts had a marked dihedral. Various powerplants were installed, typically Salmson 9, Continental O-170 or Continental O-200. The aircraft uses all-wood construction with a single piece box-spar.

     

    D.11s were licence-built by a number of manufacturers in Europe and elsewhere, including Wassmer, Aero-Difusión, and Falconar Avia. Many examples were also home-built with plans provided by Falconar.

     

    More than 3,000 examples have been built and flown. Many Jodels have been built in Australia and flown with VH- registrations, but a number have been reregistered with RAAus.
