More info on : www.pouguide.org
Designed by the Henri Mignet, the “Pou-du-Ciel” was the result of a long quest for a safe aeroplane that could be built quickly and cheaply by any amateur. 

His first success was the HM-8, a nearly classic monoplane of which drawings and advices were diffused thanks the book he published himself. 

Mignet thought difficult to use both hands and feets to handle an aeroplane and continue to built and try aeroplanes of his own creations till the HM-14 in 1933.
