Miles Proposes Executive Student Jet
Paris—Lightweight, rugged and compact, the side-by-side, single-engine Miles Student jet trainer is a docile, easy to fly airplane capable of operating into small fields, a flight evaluation by AVIATION WEEK showed. Designed primarily as an economical military and airline-pilot trainer by F. G. Miles, Ltd., of Shoreham Airport, Sussex, England, the little Student— empty weight is but 2,400 lb.; maximum overload, 3,900 lb.—is being considered for a secondary role as a four-place sport-executive airplane.
