Jodel D119 Model Details
Development and design
In 1961,& Jean DÃ©lÃ©montez& designed a two-seat light aircraft for the SociÃ©tÃ© Aeronautique Normande (SAN) at& Bernay& in& Normandy& to replace his earlier& Jodel D.11, which SAN (amongst other manufacturers) were building to meet a requirement for aircraft to equip flying clubs subsidised by the French government. DÃ©lÃ©montez based the new design on his threeâ€“four seat& Jodel Ambassadeur, (also being built by SAN), with a reduced span wing and shorter fuselage.
The new aircraft, the& D.150 Grand Tourisme3& first flew on 2 June 1962, production beginning (as the& D.150 Mascaret- named after a& tidal bore) in 1963.
Like all the light aircraft that DÃ©lÃ©montez designed under the Jodel and Robin names, the D.150 is a low-winged& monoplane& of wooden construction, with distinctive upturned outer wings. It has a fixed& tailwheel undercarriage, with its crew of two sitting side-by-side under a two door canopy. It was offered with the same range of engines as the larger Ambassadeur, giving a good performance for a two-seat trainer/tourer.
Sixty-two D.150s had been built by 1969, when SAN went into& liquidation, the factory being brought by& Avions Mudry.& Plans for homebuilt construction of the Mascaret remain available, over 100 having been built.
Basic version, powered by 75& kW (100& hp) Rolls-Royce Continental O-200 engine, 44 factory built.
Version powered by 78& kW (105& hp)& Potez 4E& engine, 17 factory built.
