Wow, there's a name I haven't heard in a while, he taught me how to fly gliders.

Have you tried going through Coverite?

Last address I had for Henry was
2560 Route 9
Lot 48A
Malta NY. 12020

And yes he still had copies of his Gee Bee book for sale

I just met Mr. Haffke at the Wram show a few weeks ago. I bought a copy of his book and he included his business card.
It is the same address as what Lake Flyer posted. His email address was crossed off, so you'll need to use snail-mail.
He did mention that he bought back all copies of his book, so he is the only source, other than used copies.

Hi Guys,
I spoke to Henry over the phone just a short while ago. He only works by snail mail. I will be ordering a set of 25% Model Y plans and his book from him shortly. I will take his plans and blow them up to 33%.
Henry is a super nice guy to talk to and he is willing to talk GeeBee's to anyone that has any questions.
Later!!
Anthony

I doubt it. The last I heard (January this year) Henry was in a nursing and rehab center after suffering a major stroke.

The Changes were made by the Spirit of Yesteryear guys in Ontario when they owned the rights. Brodak just is selling what the SOY guys had in stock. My E plans are all toast from building and re-building the airplane.
