Nicolas-Claude NC-2 Aquilon: Refreshing north wind.

Greatly influenced by Henri Mignet’s “Pou-du-Ciel” (Flying Flea), this single-seat touring aircraft was conceived by Leon Claude in the late 1930s. Built at Jean Nicolas’ workshop, the 50 hp Train-engined NC-2 was a low-wing monoplane equipped with canard foreplanes. First flown on the spring of 1937, this cute aircraft remained an unique prototype.
