less expensive to operate. These two facts make it easier and less expensive to build and maintain. Also a smaller runway is needed. At over 1,700 pounds gross weight the Hatz Classic is a stable

maneuvers like loops, rolls and hammerheads can be performed easily. Ground handling is as easy as any taildragger can be.
