Hello,

I find in the book "Les ailes volantes" by Alain Pelletier (Editions ETAI, 1999) a brief description of two light aircraft projects designed by Fairchild Canada in 1943 under the references X-1 and X-2.
With the following specifications:
X-1: Engine: 90hp, Span: 9,75m, Length: 4,5m, Area: 15,23m2, Weight: 781kg.
X-2: 130hp DH Gipsy Major engine; Span: 10,06m; Length: 4,34m; Area: 16,4m2, Weight: 802kg.

I am looking for any further information concerning those projects.

Thanks,

Ken Molson's "Canadian Aircraft Since 1909" has a photo of the X-1 wind tunnel model. I'll post it when I get my scanner working (if somebody doesn't beat me to it).
