Lilles JCL-01 Laser 2000

08/31/2010. Reportedly this aircraft is a rebuilt from the wreckage of a tricycle Centre Est Aéronautique DR.380, that had been 80% destroyed in a non-fatal landing accident. It took Jean Claude Lilles seven years to finish the aircraft, which was registered on July 23, 2002. Still fitted with the original 160 hp Lycoming O-360 engine, slotted flaps were added, while the landing gear was converted to a tail wheel configuration, and the sliding canopy was replaced by butterfly doors.
