JPM 03 Loiret Wikipedia
The Loiret features a cantilever low wing, a two-seats-in-side-by-side configuration enclosed cockpit under a bubble canopy, fixed tricycle landing gear with wheel pants and a single engine in tractor configuration.
The aircraft is made from steel tube with its flying surfaces covered in doped aircraft fabric. Its 7.72 m (25.3 ft) span wing has an area of 8.49 m2 (91.4 sq ft) and mounts flaps. The Loiret was designed specifically to use only the 85 hp (63 kW) Jabiru 2200 four-stroke powerplant.
The aircraft can be built with a single-piece wing or a three-piece folding wing. With the wings folded the resulting width is 2.36 m (7.7 ft), permitting ground transport or storage.
