THE PARIS AERO SHOW
CIVIL TYPES in PARIS
The Societe Francaise d'Aviation Nouvelle exhibit a new type, the S.F.A.N.5. This is a side-by-side two-seater, with the cockpit shielded by a large wide windscreen which sweeps up
to the wing. Owing to the fact that the stub which carries the wing is “hollow ground” and the fuselage width narrows fairly abruptly behind the cockpit, there is an open gap on each side at the back which should assist ventilation without causing draught in the cockpit. The engine of the S.F.A.N.5 is a Train of 60 h.p., mounted above the wing and driving a pusher airscrew.
