  New and interesting is the little Potez 60, a machine built under the Government subsidy scheme for producing very light and inexpensive machines "for the multitude." The 60 has the three-cylinder Potez radial engine of 60-70 h.p., and is an open two-seater parasol monoplane. The usual Potez system is adhered to of having a stub extending from the bottom longerons to which the undercarriage is attached, and in this case the stub is carried out a little farther than usual, and is faired so that it forms a diminutive lower plane and, maybe designedly, a step by which to reach the cockpits. On the whole it appears to be a feasible proposition, though rather too light for serious use.
The Potez 60, with the three-cyiinder 60 h.p. Potez engine, is a French attempt to satisfy the demand for a very cheap and light club machine.
