Dijkman Dulkes Dijkhastar II

04/30/2011. Remarks by Walter van Tilborg: "The Dijkhastar II was the second design homebuilt aircraft of Cor P. Dijkman Dulkes of Beverwijk, the Netherlands. (The first design was the unregistered FB-25 which made an 'unintended' and unauthorized first flight from a nearby beach on September 13, 1969.) The name Dijkhastar was derived from the names of designer Dijkman Dulkes, pilot Jacob van Ham and co-disigner Wim Staargaard.

Design of the side-by-side two-seat aircraft was started in June 1970, as powerplant an 100 hp Continental O-200-A four-cylinder horizontal-opposed air-cooled engine was selected and it featured detachable wings for easy transport. Named 'Witte Raaf' (White Crow) the aircraft was registered
PH-COR on September 16, 1976 and two days later the first flight was made. The Dijkhastar II became Holland's first original design homebuilt to receive a CoA, this was presented in June 1982.

The CofA expired on September 30, 1999 and the registration was cancelled a year later, July 19, 2000; Cor P. Dijkman Dulkes passed away on November 14, 2006. The aircraft is still owned by his widow Wolanda I. Dijkman Dulkes-Hornstra, and reportedly the aircraft will be restored to airworthiness by J.J. van Egmond of Nijverdal."
