Peņa Capeņa C

08/31/2010. Louis Peņa designed and built this very little aerobatic aircraft, incorporating many features of the CAP 21 (hence the name Capeņa), including control surfaces and (truncated) fuselage. An entirely new wing of exceedingly short span was developed by Michel Dozieres. Powerplant was an Avco Lycoming AEIO-360 four-cylinder horizontally-opposed engine.

Registered F-WZTC (later reregistered F-PZTC), the prototype (c/n 01) was first flown by Peņa on July 24, 1984, a second aircraft, F-PYTQ (c/n 02) was built by M.F. Sire for Michel Cala in 1986. The pictured aircraft was built by Jean Duguy for Michel Krall in 2005.
