Anyone out there have any information on this design, good, bad or ugly. If so, are the plans still available. I really like the high boom layoff with tricycle gear. Are there any recent aircraft that resemble this older model. Thanks.

I didn't know they ever offered plans. Or, kits for that matter. I saw the original Avion at Oshkosh, built by Bob Lovejoy. Very slick and simple little U/L, and flew well on a KT100s.

Far as I can recall, Brock bought the rights to produce kits for it, but never went into production after Bob was killed in his. I was disappointed. I heard that the crash was due to the pilot's failure to hook up the elevator control. No fault of the design.
