The Poullin JP.30 was a French single-seat agricultural aircraft designed and built by Jean Poullin, of which one example was constructed in 1952.

Development[edit]

The JP.30 was specified for agricultural use including crop-spraying. The powerplant was a Continental C-90 of 90 hp (67 kW). It was a single-seat high-wing monoplane with a fixed tailwheel undercarriage.

Operational history[edit]

After several years agricultural service, the aircraft, F-WGIR, was retired and used as an advertising feature for the former Bar de l'Escadrille at Guyancourt airfield to the west of Paris, where it was last noted in June 1963.
