Hi Hesham!
In your text it says "engine not specified". AFAIK the JP-31 was a projected variant of the JP-30 with 160hp Lycoming O-320. but it was never built.

You are right;

J. POULLIN (PROJECT). - Jean Poullin, which we know he realized,a few years ago, a small two-seater for tourism
called Globe-Trotter, then a single-seater powder (agricultural) JP-30. had failed to produce the JP-31 version,
more powerful. evolved from the latter. He works currently planning a new powder aircraft, including the central
engine, a 90hp Continental C-90,would cause two large propellers lateral diameter driven by belts.

That means he designed anther Project as agricultural aircraft,powered by single engine,driven a two
propellers,right ?.

JPV.30 is a biplace side-by-side trainer. JPV.30 is a tri-place utility airplane. Two JPV.40s are mentioned as being built by amateur builders. One JPV.50, high-wing derivative of JPV.40, is being built too.

Dear Hesham!
The P-40 was actually built and AFAIK 2 examples were completed, one in France (F-PBYF) and one in Belgium (OO-68). Attached a photo of the one in France.
Also some text:
single-seat sport
No.1: one 25hp VW1200 piston engine
max. speed 113 mph, cruise 98 mph, ceiling 9,500ft, range 375 miles
wingspan 19.695ft; length 8.530ft; height 3.936ft
DETAILS: The P-40 was an original design (Mr. Jean Pottier's first to be built) homebuilt aircraft and featuring a flying wing configuration. Development already started in 1968, but it was until 1976 (1975?) that the first P-40 was flown. This aircraft, which reportedly only made one brief flight and which was destroyed in an accident on the maiden flight, was built in France, by Mr. Bela Nogrady with one 25hp VW1200 engine. A second example was built in Belgium (OO-68) and that aircraft later joined the Brussels Military Museum (Musée Royale de l’Armée et d’Histoire Militaire Bruxelles) collection. No further aircraft of the type were built and Mr. Pottier concentrated on more conventional designs such as the P-70, P-80 etc.
Production: 2

Thank you for the information on the Belgian P-40:). Would you know what engine is installed in OO-68?

Dear Walter,
I just have the information that it was a two-stroke engine, but nothing else.
