Instituto Aerotécnico I.Aé.34 Clen Antú

02/28/2014. The first South-American all-wing tail-less aircraft, the above pictured two-seat glider I.Aé.34 Clen Antú (Sunray), was designed by the well-know German tail-less aircraft expert Ing. Reimar Horten, and was built by the Instituto Aerotécnico at Cordoba, Argentina.

The aircraft was first flown by Edmundo Weiss on June 20, 1949. Four two-seat examples were built, designated I.Aé.34 Clen Antú, followed by two single-seat aircraft, designated I.Aé.34 M Clen Antú. In 1953 the first of five side-by-side two-seaters was flown, designated I.A.41 Urubú (Owl).

These three types are also known by their Horten designations: Ho XVa, Ho XVb, and Ho XVc respectively.

The following data relate to the I.Aé.34.
