Piel C.P.301A Emeraude

12/31/2009. Remarks by Walter van Tilborg: "The C.P.301A was the most built version of the Emeraude, the 301A indicating the use of the Continental C90 motor. Emeraudes could be fitted with a sliding canopy or a fixed canopy with forward-hinged doors. Some examples had removable wings.

About 290 examples of the C.P.301A were produced, 118 in France by Coopavia (96), Renard (4), Rouchaud (5), SCANOR (4), and SOCA (9), as well as 11 in South Africa by Genair (designated Ariel II), and 5 in the UK as the Linnet by Fairtravel (3) and Garland-Bianchi (2). The balance was amateur-built.
