The Wing Derringer is an American light twin-engined two-seat monoplane tourer designed by John Thorp and developed by the Hi-Shear Corporation and built by the Wing Aircraft Company.

Development

The D-1 Derringer light twin design was originally designed in 1958 by John Thorp as the Thorp T-17 a twin-engined development of his Thorp T-11 Sky Scooter. The design was taken over by George Wing of the Hi-Shear Corporation. The Derringer is a low-wing cantilever monoplane with a retractable tricycle landing gear. It had room for two in an enclosed cockpit with an unusual up and backward opening canopy. It was powered by two 115hp Continental O-200 engines, one mounted on the leading edge of each wing. The prototype aircraft (registered "N3621G") first flew on 1 May 1962 at Torrance.A second prototype flew in November 1964 but crashed a few weeks later. A static test aircraft and two more aircraft were built for testing which resulted in the award of a type certificate in December 1966. The aircraft did not go into production due to internal problems within the Hi-Shear Corporation.

In 1978 George Wing left Hi-Shear and started the Wing Aircraft Company. The company built one-pre-production aircraft followed by six production aircraft. The company went into bankruptcy in July 1982 and only one further aircraft was built before seven unfinished airframes were sold.
