Hello All

I am searching for ANY information on the Troyer Mid-Wing VX. The airplane was built in the 1940s and was based on the Heath Super Parasol / Center-Wing. Plans were offered for sale until the mid 70's and an article was published in Sports Airplanes Magazine Fall 1970. I am mostly interested in copies of the plans and the magazine article.

Thanks to anyone who can help. I can be contacted via email at: n99jh1@gmail.com or: 910-280-9481.

Best Regards

Joshua

Kermit Troyer built the Troyer Mid-Wing of the Heath Mid-Wing in the '30's. Kermit was a physically small person. So,when he built the Mid-wing he scaled it down. I doubt that Kermit made plans for his version. Look for HEATH plans. Good luck.Bud Potts EAA 13548

Mr. Potts

Thanks for your reply. I have many old aviation magazines going back to the 50s with advertisements for plans of the Troyer VX in them. The asking price in the 70's was $65. The big question is whether anyone bought a set of those plans. Anyone familiar with them would probably be in their 80's or older by now.
