AISA (INTA) HM.3: Floating Dead Man.

AISA (INTA) HM.3: Floating Death Man.

A floatplane variant of the HM.1, a vicious handling primary trainer, the two HM.3’s were tested at the end of the 40’s with certain problems due to their float design and lack of power.The Spanish AF didn’t show any interest and they rested as prototypes.

The “HM” acronysm stood for its designed: Huarte Mendicoa, but jokily, some said that it was for “Hombre Muerto”,……”Dead Man” in Spanish
