Flight, January 1929
THE CHICAGO INTERNATIONAL AERONAUTICAL EXPOSITION
The Heath Parasol, constructed by the Heath Airplane Co., of Chicago, is a lightly built high-wing monoplane, fitted with a 65 h.p. 4-cyl. in-line air-cooled Henderson engine. It has a speed range of 28-70 m.p.h., and is claimed to be very easy to fly.
The origins of Heath Super Parasol N1926 are somewhat obscure. The aircraft originally registered N1926 was a Douglas M-4, so this number probably commemorates the first year of manufacture
British-built Heath Parasol G-AFZE. It is still extant, currently under restoration at Reigate, Surrey.
Koerner’s mid-wing racer at the 1st National Air Race, Glenview, Illinois. It was based on the Heath Parasol.
