    The Experimental Soaring Association sells some of the published books and materials from Stan Hall. They will know whether the plans are available and where.

    The president (and high exalted righteous iron-fisted fearless leader) of ESA is now active on this HBA forum, username MV4440 or something like that.

    If you can't find him looking through recent posts in the Soaring or Sailplane discussion sections of this forum, shoot me a PM and I will forward it to him or call him personally.

    My old flight instructor and my old friend built a Cherokee many years ago. Made a round streamline fiberglass nose and different wing tips. I always liked the Cherokee.
    I was offered a Cherokee for free a couple years ago, but its a group effort in flying it, so turned it down and it went to being a display at a business.

    I would love a set, too, so I would be interested in hearing what you find out.

    I just sent an e-mail to the ESA president, he will hopefully provide additional information here in this thread soon.

    The family does not want plans disseminated. Best bet is to buy a project. If you have an actual aircraft, documentation is available. You can get one for less than than material costs would be today.

    If you go to the end of the web site above there was an original plan set offered in April 2019;might still be there.

    Thanks, When I was working in the ground crew at the Sailplane Club in Huntington, WV in the early 1970's , Ray Shamblen ( my powered and sailplane instructor and old friend) was flying N3189. I was also at his home many times when he was building the Cherokee.
    I see that Greg Pelfrey ( in the Huntington, WV area, that I also know) owns Tommie Reeves old Cherokee N3393.

    Ray and Tommie would take me with them to the Sailplane contest at New Castle, Va. and Linville, NC. Great days.
