Leeon D. Davis

Leeon D. Davis

Leeon D. Davis was an American aircraft designer, noted for his homebuilt aircraft. Davis worked as a sheet-metal worker at Aero Commander before undertaking his own designs. All of Davis' aircraft featured a characteristic V-tail, and the most successful of these was the DA-2. Plans to develop this basic design into an aircraft capable of certification went unrealised.
