Pottier P.60A Minacro

10/31/2010. The P-60 Minacro was one of the many designs made by Jean Pottier. Unlike his earlier designs which were of all metal construction, the P-60 featured a wooden construction covered with fabric, it was also the first biplane design of Pottier and could accept engines up to 125 hp. The first P-60 was completed in Austria and flown as OE-AGM around 1991 or 1992, powered by a 90 hp Potez 4E-20 engine.

The single-seat P-60 was aerobatic and by end-1999 reportedly some six examples of the P-60 had already flown, including the pictured one. The third Pottier built and the first in France, F-PRIJ was produced by Gérard Caminade and powered by a 90 hp Continental C90 engine it was first flown in September 1992.
