346 Hanriot H182 have been built since the date of the first flight in 1935.

To date, of the 346 aircrafts manufactured, 28 are listed in the list below :



At the end of 1933, the company Hanriot offers a new tourism aircraft, the Hanriot H-180. The latter, a fixed-landing gear parasol monoplan, is of conventional design, but nevertheless presents certain peculiarities. Thus, if the driver and the first passenger are conventionally arranged in tandem in a closed cabin, the second passenger is placed in the open air, in a cockpit separated by a glass door ... The engine is entrusted to a Renault 4Pei of 140ch driving a two-bladed propeller. Registered F-AOJO, the prototype makes its first flight in July 1934.

The aircraft did not meet success with the civil pilots and the flying clubs, but attracted the attention of the Air Ministry, which saw it as a potential observation and reconnaissance device. The Air Force ordered a second aircraft, the H-180M, similar to the first prototype, to install an observer in the rear end position. He made his first flight in October 1934, but finally proved disappointing and was not retained. A version "Sanitary" was studied, the H-181, but did not know more success.

The Hanriot H-182 found its salvation in a new configuration that turned it into a training device. Designated H-182, it was equipped with dual-controls, and the rear seat was replaced by an extra folding seat. This version made its first flight in February 1935 and was followed by an order for 346 copies. Naval Aviation will also order 5 units, designated H-185, to equip its own training schools. The marine version showed little difference from the H-182M of the Air Force, however, anecdotally, the presence of a heated seat on the rear end post in the open air ...

The aircraft will be distributed in flight schools of the Air Force and Naval Aviation or as liaison devices within combat units. When the conflict broke out in September 1939, the Hanriot H-182 was an important part of the training planes and some were camouflaged. At the Armistice in June 1940, many pilots escape to England to continue the fight, some will do it on board aircraft like the H-182. Thirty of them will be on British soil and will be used until spare parts are exhausted. It is likely that the Germans also seized some abandoned copies intact on the grounds by the French.

The Hanriot H-182 was also used abroad, and 10 aircraft taken from the Air Force aircraft will participate in the Spanish Civil War. They were all destroyed by the Francoist Air Force. Another 50 aircraft will be purchased and delivered to Turkey as observation devices.

Other versions, left unfulfilled were made: The H-183, unique model for aerobatics that received a more powerful engine (180Hp) or the H-184, more powerful training version (180Hp also)



Prototype of the series with two Tandem seats in the closed cockpit and a third place ... in the open air separated from the other two by a glass door. The aircraft makes its first flight in July 1934 and is exhibited at the Paris Air Show
Military version of the H.180, this observation aircraft did not develop. Identical design H.180 tourism, he made his first flight in October 1934.
Version adapted as sanitary aircraft for the transport of wounded: the upper rear part of the fuselage is removable to receive a stretcher. The Ministry of Air retained the Bloch MB.81, this version of the Hanriot was again not retained. It was built in 1935.
Version ordered by the Ministry of Air for the training of pilots of the Air Force. The unit is equipped with dual-control and the third seat is replaced by a jump seat. This version made its first flight in February 1935. 10 copies will be transferred to Spain to fight in the ranks of the Government Troops. They will all be destroyed by the Francoist Air Force. 50 more will be delivered to Turkey as an observation device.
Aerobatic training plane powered by a Renault 438 180hp.
Training aircraft with double-drive with 180hp drive. This version has remained unfulfilled.
Version ordered by Aéronavale as a liaison and transport aircraft. The jump seat that serves as seat for the 2nd Passenger at the rear end is here replaced by a heated seat to allow to transport these gentlemen of the General Staff in the best conditions ... The five copies were built in 1937 .
