LA8 Minor Two

 

 

The L.A.8 Minor-Two was a design exercise for a two seat Minor from the drawing board of Arthur Ord-Hume in 1964.  It was originally known as the Commander. 

The design utilised many common parts from the La4 Minor, offered a 38 inch wide side by side cockpit, and today would probably be powered by the 80 hp Jabiru engine (the original design specified a Walter Mikron  IIIAE 65hp engine). 

Like the new Minor 2000 design, the trailing edge centre section, as well as space behind the seats, incorporated stowage space (a feature rather lacking in the original Minor).
