Gatard AG-04 Pigeon

09/30/2014. Remarks by Walter van Tilborg: "The Pigeon (Dove) was larger than the earlier homebuilt designs of Albert Gatard and offered accommodation to up to four persons and featured foldable wings. The first (and only) example was built by the designer with a 90 hp Continental C90 engine and made the first flight on July 20, 1976. The AG 04 was offered for amateur construction, but no further aircraft were completed. In 1984 the aircraft received a redesigned wing, and the aircraft had several owners since. It was registered in the name of the current owner, Alain Magdelaine of Chantenay St.Imbert, on March 22, 2010 and still is as of this day."
