At three quarters of the size of vintage biplanes of the 30ís the Classic is lighter and easier to handle.  Using a four cylinder Lycoming engine The Classic is 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 airplane.  The time proven tube and fabric construction makes the Classic a solid airplane.  The Clark Y airfoil provides the Hatz Classic with the forgiving characterists  similar to a Cub. Yet basic aerobatic maneuvers like loops, rolls and hammerheads can be performed easily.  Ground handling is as easy as any taildragger can be.
