Uetz U2V

10/31/2011. During the mid-1950s, the Walter Uetz Flugzeugbau at Speck, Switzerland was actively building the Jodel D.11 (eighteen produced) and CAB Minicab for sale in Austria and Switzerland.

In July, 1962, they flew the prototype U2V which was, essentially, a Jodel D.11 with a straight wing (as opposed to the cranked Jodel wing), a single-piece clear windshield which hinged upwards for entry to the cockpit and a 100 hp Continental O-200-A engine. A new dorsal fin was also fitted. Only three U2Vs were built, together with one U2MFGZ (HB-SOV c/n 1131/17) which retained the standard Jodel wing.

The HB-SVM is presently registered to Erich Fankhauser of Gontenschwil, Switzerland.
