This monoplane was partticularly notable for the position of its propeller, its low center of gravity, the upturned ends of the plane, and the provision of a clutch enabling the aviator to start the motor, step into the machine, and then start the propeller. Many biplanes and monoplanes were built by M. Pischof in 1907 and 1908. This type, with its chassis like a motor car, was flown very well in 1910, and incorporated many far-sighted innovations. Despite its low center of gravity, it flew easily around corners. This type was manufactured by the Autoplan-Werke in Vienna, as also the Warchalowski biplane.
