The Thorp T-211,was designed by the legendary aircraft designer, John Thorp. The original airplane was designed and type certificated in 1946 as the Thorp T11. Updated to 100 HP in the 1960's, and designated the T211, it was completely re-engineered, modernized and re-certified by the FAA in 1990.
Thorp Aero of Sturgis, Kentucky in 1990-91, manufactured the T 211 under an FAA Production Certificate. The project was stopped due to the economic climate of the times. IndUS Aviation acquired the rights to production, tooling and a large inventory of parts and spares, which launched our manufacture of this airplane.
